Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) – The Colorado National Monument held its third listening session Tuesday night to gather public input on the types of events, activities, and public uses visitors would like to see there.
The meeting was held in Glade Park, with previous meetings in Fruita and Grand Junction.
Monument superintendent Lisa Eckert says the meeting encourages community dialogue about what commercial and visitor activities are most desired.
"Some of these events might be, for instance, we have weddings that are permitted, picnics, there's our marathon in November as one example. The tour of the moon is a permitted activity that went through a special park use process where we evaluate their request," says Eckert, National Monument superintendent.”
Eckert also say she hopes as many people as possible will join the conversation.
