George Wysopal and Gary Meeker had a meeting with the new Nogales District Ranger, Marlon and the temporary Rec Manager, Lauren today. They still don’t have a permanent replacement for John Titre.
Spent about 90 minutes with them. Started out with introductions and filling them in on who we are and all the good stuff we do.
Then talked about the history of Red Spring, lots of communication.
Then the plan to finally get an information Kiosk installed at Red Spring.
Then the really important stuff, Red Spring Phase 2. Lots discussion about the process going forward. They have committed to have the archaeologist and experts in the office review the proposed routes for any issues. If no issues, then we can think about proceeding with NEPA and public comments. If there are issues, then we look for alternate routes and go do some more hiking.
It was a very positive meeting and looking forward to working with the new team at the Nogales district.
