Moose Wilson Corridor Studied

Representatives of the regional Transportation Advisory Committee involving Wyoming Department of Transportation, Teton County, the Town of Jackson and Grand Teton National Park yesterday discussed ways to solicit more public input into a project involving the Moose-Wilson corridor.  Park Management Assistant Gary Pollock explains the plan needs to be formed through the best available science – and that he adds involves visitor activities there.  Says Polock:  “We don’t know as much as we would like to know in terms of what experiences they’re seeking, what their values are, where they’re coming from, how do they using the Moose-Wilson corridor – a variety of things just about a park visitor’s experience.”  He says the group has contracted with some university professors who have done a lot of work in this field to conduct research into the area’s use.   Pollock says the root of the project involves results of planning in 2007, but some things have changed since that time, and it was decided to do a comprehensive management plan involving the road.  That plan would involve how it is used by visitors, how they interact with the resources there (including wildlife) and how that would affect the quality of park resources and of visitor experience.  He says once the notice of intent is published in the Federal Register, there will be a 60-day scoping period which will include public workshops.  He says the committee hopes the complete the plan in about two years.

On defense, the Cowboys top priority is to stop the run.  With a talented quarterback […]

    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
