At 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 30, the Routt County Commissioners will decide whether or not to keep County Road 18C open to the public. Last month, the Planning Commission’s recommendation to the County Commissioners was to only close that portion of 18C which extends beyond the bridge over the Yampa. It is still in the County Commissioners’ hands to decide the fate of the portion of 18C that we all use and love.
It’s imperative that we have a strong showing on May 30. We need to attend en masse in order to convince our County Commissioners to keep 18C open. Their focus has been on saving money and they have not been personally exposed to our feedback other than through emails. Your presence at this meeting is the most effective tool we have to convince the Commissioners that their constituents want this road to remain open to the public. If we have minimal representation at the meeting, I am afraid the fate of CR 18C will be sealed.
Please plan on attending and let your voice be heard during the public comments portion of the meeting. And please call two friends who use 18C and encourage them to attend as well. Here are the meeting details:

Thanks in advance for your attendance. Let’s all stand up and be counted in our ongoing quest to keep 18C open!
