Friends Groups Weigh in on San Juan County

At a recent public meeting in San Juan County, members of the Friends Grassroots Network brought dozens of members to weigh in with Congressmen Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz on the parameters of an omnibus public lands bill that would include conservation, recreation and development components.  The Utah Dine Bikeyah and Friends of Cedar Mesa members were among the more than 200 people who flowed out of the Monticello County Courthouse and down the steps into the lobby.

The one hour meeting to collect public feedback was part of a broader tour the Congressmen were making in the region to explore components of a lands bill.  You can read about the process in the San Juan Record or listen to Utah Public Radio.
