Thanks for providing the opportunity to respond to this RV proposal. In general, it is our opinion that there are plenty of places to recreate throughout the San Luis Valley, and for the most part, they are accessible and well-maintained. Though we know there are more
people wanting to experience the SLV, careful planning and coordination with the appropriate agencies is what will make the difference, in terms of sustainable management. SLVEC does not see this type of planning and management being offered in this Summitville, RV proposal.
There is too much of a reliance on public lands management being the default, which apparently the proponents haven’t even begun to think about, to pick up the inevitable results of human impact. This is a clear example of the potential of “privatize profits and socialize losses.” The wildlife and surrounding environment usually suffers the most.
