FRUITA, Colo. The Colorado National Monument listened to your voices and now officials there are looking to make improvements to their organization. A report was released summarizing information compiled from workshops during the summer.
Monument officials discussed things like special use permits and more public involvement in the decision making process.
The issue of becoming a national park was also brought up, something that could raise the park's profile.
"Imagine if the pride just swelled in this community," said Lisa Eckert, Superintendent of the Colorado National Monument, "that it was outside economic benefit, that it was some of the other concerns, would it be for pride? And that would be something worth exploring."
The issue has had a lot of support as well as opposition, but in order for a title change to happen, a bill must first be introduced to Congress.
