COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – A Colorado organization is soliciting public input for outdoor recreation and conservation planning.
The Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance (PPORA) is hosting a series of community listening sessions to give everyone the opportunity to voice their opinions on what’s important to them when it comes to getting outdoors. They say they want to ensure Colorado remains “a world-class outdoor destination.”
The meetings will cover El Paso, Teller and Fremont counties.
“We love these places,” said Becky Leinweber, executive director of PPORA. “We want to preserve what’s special about our Pikes Peak region, but to do that we need to plan for the future.”
