Apache Trail Petition

Recommended Posts

I occasionally use the AZ Backcountry Explorers website as a reference. Today I received a newsletter from them regarding Apache Trail and its 2 year and counting closure.  Based on the newsletter the state is not wanting to fix or maintain it. They are considering handing it off to federal jurisdictions instead of dealing with it was my understanding. ADOT states that where the rock slide occurred was due to the massive fire out there in 2019.  In reality the fire never touched Fish Creek Hill ,where the rock slide happened. 

 

This link  will take you to a page that has some interesting information along with more details. There is an option at the bottom to send a pre-written letter to the governor if feel so inclined.

That's a letter to Governor Douchebag, I mean Ducey.  Not a good idea for me to write a letter to that scum bag piece of 💩, lol!  I would love to see that opened back up though!

You DO NOT have to pen a letter.   A professionally worded one is available to you to read, and sign your name to, much like similar petitions, should you care to become involved as a participant for positive action...

Signed myself and my wife's name.  When I looked at that last night I didn't realize it was a petition. 😎

Thanks for sharing @shellback91! I submitted as well.

 

I remember reading this, or some other article, a little while back about public lands access issues. I think it was during one of the recent Travel Management Plan fights.

https://modernjeeper.com/6-tips-on-land-use-letter-writing-for-impact/

 

It was a pretty good "how to" on writing an impactful letter to government representatives. It became important to have "custom letters" and not "cookie cutter" letters for things like public commentary on things like Travel Management Plans since the public commentary rules had noted that all "cut and copy" letters would be ignored by the Dept of the Interior/BLM/etc... A pretty interesting take on stripping away your access to your lands.
