Legislation to Terminate RequiredNo
Legislation StatusEnacted
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The committee has met two times this fiscal year to remain informed about the general management planning process and the public comment issues of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.
How is membership balanced?*The council membership reflects the requirements of Public Law 106-530 which established the advisory council and allotted slots on the council to representatives from local counties, the Friends of the Dunes, and residents of the San Luis Valley. Council members also represent organizations of nearby property owners, a local environmental organization, a hunting and outfitter organization and the Nature Conservancy, an organization holding significant lands within the Monument.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee is expected to meet approximately 4 times per year. Frequent meetings are necessary to keep pace with the General Management Plan (GMP) process and to ensure that the GMP is completed as expeditiously and efficiently as possible. The GMP guides the management direction of the park, and as such, delays in its completion produces delays in implementation of a long-term management strategy for Great Sand Dunes.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The committee was authorized by Congress to provide advice on the completion of a General Management Plan for Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meeting are open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThe Council did not meet in 2007. The General Management Plan was finalized July 19, 2007.
