November 3, 2001 Rocky Mountain News (Denver, CO)

After four months of preparation the first draft of the Colorado Division of Wildlife's latest strategic plan is ready for public comment.

The plan, written by four work groups representing wildlife officials and the public, will guide wildlife management during the next five years. It addresses issues such as chronic wasting disease in deer and elk, predator management, protecting cold-water fish species from whirling disease, improving customer service, educating the public in wildlife issues and implementing recovery plans for at-risk, threatened and endangered species. The plan will be adopted in final form by the Colorado Wildlife Commission in December. The 47-page draft is available from division offices or on the division's Web site,, by clicking About the DOW, then Strategic Plan Process, then Oct. 28 Draft of Strategic Plan.

Written comments may be e-mailed to or mailed to the division at 6060 Broadway, Denver, CO 80216. The deadline for written comment is Nov. 12. Testimony in person also will be taken at commission meetings, Nov. 8-9 in Pueblo and Dec. 6-7 in Walden.
