DENVER - The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission is hosting a public meeting to discuss a variety of topics including an effort to create a comprehensive strategy for mule deer management in Colorado.
The meeting will take place on Thursday and Friday at Hampton Inn and Suites at 785 E. Highway 50 in Salida. The meeting will begin at 8:30 am on Thursday, and is scheduled to adjourn shortly before noon on Friday. According to a posted schedule, decreasing mule deer populations will be a topic around 9:30am on Friday.
Other issues include changes to the landowner preference program as well as approving motorized and non-motorized trail grants. Commissioners will also receive updates on the State Water Plan, and the big game season structure review process.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission sets regulations and policies for Colorado's state parks and wildlife programs. The commission meets monthly and travels to communities around the state to facilitate public participation in its processes.
In 2014, the commission is scheduled to hold meetings in Grand Junction, Alamosa, Meeker, Fort Collins, Glenwood Springs, Burlington and Colorado Springs.
