Gunnison, CO. - In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the National Park Service (NPS) prepared a plan and environmental assessment (EA) to evaluate several alternatives and related environmental impacts for motorized vehicle access at Curecanti National Recreation Area. Based on the EA, public comments, and information from other agencies and in consideration of the applicable authorities, the NPS will implement alternative C, "Designate Motorized Vehicle Access and Amend the 1997 General Management Plan", which is also the preferred alternative.
