River report suggests more access
Vail, CO Colorado
EAGLE ” With more people living and playing in Eagle County, local streams need to provide more places for people to raft and fish. That’s the main recommendation in the “Eagle River Recreation Enhancement Plan.”
That report, which cost $40,000, identifies more than 100 potential hazards in the river, and identified several areas where access to the river could be improved for kayakers, rafters and fishermen.
The suggestions include improving boat ramps and building new ones, taking pipelines and other hazards out of the river to accommodate kayakers and commercial rafting companies, and possible locations for disabled people to get to the river.
Actually doing the work is another matter. The county doesn’t have any money budgeted for river access or improvements in 2007.
“This will help us decide where we want to spend money to improve access,” Commissioner Arn Menconi said.
