January 31, 2024: Kick-Off Stakeholder (SH) Meeting

Stephanie Weber of San Juan Mountains Association (recipient of RPI grant award and host of SCCORR) facilitated the meeting with 35 participants. Purpose of the meeting is to update stakeholders on progress made since the last SCCORR meeting in March, 2023. 

  

What is the geography of SCCORR? It currently is broad, consisting of the four counties of Archuleta, La Plata, San Juan, and southern Hinsdale. The Montelores Coalition also received a grant to conduct this work in Dolores and Montezuma Counties.

 

One important role for the SCCORR Stakeholder (SH) group is to help coordinate all the initiatives happening in our area. The SH group will be a resources to understand what’s happening in the region. 

 

Our main goals in the next two months are:

  • Gather input from residents in the region, be that from people who have lived their whole lives here to those who visit for the summer. 

  • To that end we are embarking on several ways to keep an open line of communication: We plan on 10 community Listening Sessions, the SCCORR website, and an online Citizen Survey. We hope to launch the survey next week. The survey addresses what matters in terms of conservation and outdoor recreation to people who live here and those who visit.
