The local San Rafael Soil Conservation District (SCD) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (Natural Resources Conservation Service-NRCS) is seeking input from all citizens, organizations and government agencies about resource concern issues. The resource concerns of most interest to the SCD are soil, water, air, plant, animal and human issues. There may be other resource concern issues as well and public input is requested.
The San Rafael Soil Conservation District consists of five locally elected citizens charged with focusing attention on all resource concerns within its jurisdiction which is the land and water within the San Rafael River Watershed. The purpose of the SCD is to "focus attention on land, water, and related resource problems; develop programs to solve those problems; and, enlist the cooperation of various public and private resource groups who can contribute to the accomplishments of the districts goals and plans."
If you have concerns or would like to comment on local resources, please plan to attend a public meeting on June 23. The public meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the new USDA Service Center located at 1120 North Des Bee Dove Road (road to the new county sheriff's office). If you have any questions please call (435) 381-2300 and visit with Roger Barton, extension 113; Hal Lemon, extension 109; Jim Greenan, extension 111; or Wayne Urie, extension 103.
