Horseback riders: City taking action on natural areas

FORT COLLINS, Colorado – Proposals that could affect horseback riding trail use for 19 natural areas along the Poudre River will be unveiled November 9, 4- 7 p.m. at the Northside Aztlan Center, 112 East Willow Street.

A virtual open house is also planned after Nov. 9 via a PowerPoint slide show with the same information as the live open house, and featuring a feedback survey, according to Zoe Whyman ([email protected]), natural areas community relations manager.

Once public input from surveys and open houses has been considered, a final management plan will be drafted.

The final plan for the natural areas along the Poudre River will be presented at a second and final open house. The new management plan could be adopted by the Natural Resources Director in early 2011. Visit for a map of the natural areas, and after November 9, a link to the virtual open house.
