You may want to comment on Loveland's master plan for the Big Thompson River Corridor

The city is creatiing a master plan for a 9-mile section of the river as it runs through the city.  If you want to add your thoughts to the discussion, you can take an online survey between now and midnight July 16.  Here's the link.

Our government liaison is Jim Roode, who can be reached by clicking here.

As Walt Graal noted in a posting on the club Facebook page;  "Wonder if anyone thinks it might be useful to suggest that they put some focus on improving the fish quality in the river via flow considerations, habitat improvement, and perhaps some more restrictive regulations on trout? Ketchup, Idaho and Pueblo are two quick examples of what can be done - both attract anglers to the cities and have a positive impact upon city coffers."
