Steamboat Briefs for April 2


The Yampa Town Board meets at 7 p.m. in Yampa Town Hall for items including a Month of the Young Child proclamation by First Impressions of Routt County; a wind power proposal by the Yampa Ranger District; a consideration of the Antlers subdivision; swearing in of the new Town Board; an update on the historic structure assessment grant application Crossan's M & A Market; consideration of forming a planning committee for Yampa's future; a public works update; and a report about South Routt transit needs to Steamboat Springs.

Water roundtable has numerous openings

The Yampa/White Basin Roundtable, which guides solutions to regional water issues, is accepting applications for nine open voting seats: one seat representing recreation interests, one seat representing local domestic water providers, one seat representing industrial interests, one seat representing the Green River basin and five at-large seats.

There also are three non-voting seats open. These seats represent entities outside the Yampa/White/Green river basins that own water rights within the basins.

The state Legislature formed roundtables representing nine river basins across the state, and one representing the Denver metro area, in 2006, to create collaborative solutions to regional and statewide water issues.

The Yampa/White Basin Roundtable meets quarterly at different locations in Northwest Colorado. Interested parties should send a letter of interest and qualifications to Paul Strong at P.O. Box 776189, Steamboat Springs, CO, 80477, by April 10. Contact Strong at 879-9211 or, and learn more about the roundtables through the state Department of Natural Resources at
