Final Input For Camping At NC Reservoirs Wednesday
A new master plan for recreation at Alcova, Pathfinder and Grey reef reservoirs has reached a preferred alternative. That plan is intended for use over the next 20 years and addresses amenity upgrades for campsites at the recreational areas. The plan will be on display at a final workshop Wednesday evening. Margeret Teevens, for the Natrona County Parks Department explains.
“Some of the campgrounds (plans) have moderate development, so they might have just the spots being leveled and improved picnic tables, shelters and fire rings. Some of the campgrounds are slated for full development, which is the addition of more camping sites and more facilities.”
Teevens says, ultimately, the plan should recognize that the needs of recreational users have changed and will hopefully ensure the best management of the areas.
While the document provides the foundation for future decisions, no money has been appropriated for implementation, but Teevens says its still important to gather input and get it right.
“If the alternative is in the plan that means it can be considered for implementation over the next 20 years should funding become available. If it’s not in the plan it can never be considered.”
Teevens says public involvement is critical to the success of this new master plan. This final public input workshop happens Wednesday 6pm at the Natrona County Agricultural Resource Center at 2011 Fairgrounds Rd.
