FRUITA, CO – Colorado National Monument will host a third listening session at the Glade Park Community Building on Tuesday, August 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. This series of meetings is designed to gather input from the public about the types of visitor uses, events or activities at the monument.

Monument Superintendent Lisa Eckert said the Glade Park gathering is intended to continue the community dialogue about what commercial and visitor activities are most desired – and appropriate – in the park. On July 9 and 10, similar meetings were held in Fruita and Grand Junction.

“We hope these summer workshops foster an open conversation with folks in the valley about the monument,” Eckert said. “We want to hear what uses the community would like to see at the monument, and help build a shared understanding about the monument’s resources and how they are managed. We hope as many people as possible will join in this conversation.”
The meeting will be facilitated by CDR Associates, a respected Colorado mediation group.

The Glade Park Community Building is located at 101 16.5 Road, just north of the intersection of DS and 16.5 Roads in the vicinity of the Glade Park Store.
