Board members spent almost the entire meeting listening to 9 members of the community just west of the main entrance addressing the issue of their parking issue caused by visitors to RRCOS. Photos were shared and three members volunteered to represent their particular section of the neighborhood in voicing concerns of safety and accessibility to government officials as yet to be determined. The FoRRC Board formed a subcommittee to support the efforts of this neighborhood. The photo at left shows congestion at he entrance to the neighborhood caused by park visitors.
The Board agreed to support a potential reroute of Lions Trail under the condition the old portions of the trail would be reclaimed in a satisfactory manor.

Meadows trail is now open in the southeast part of the park. The City did a good job on this trail through its contractor. More trails and trail refinements are in the works. Stay tuned!
No formal Board meeting this month. The Board of Directors held a very short and informal meeting during our Christmas party. Many thanks to Glenn and Laura Pressman for hosting a great time in their beautiful house!
The Friends of Red Rock Canyon Board of Directors met on November 11. Keep on the lookout for a Red Rock Rag newsletter to be published in December sometime before the holidays. Several members will participate in the Mile High Youth Corps tool maintenance project later this month. FoRRC continues to make progress with City adoption of the Procedures for Amending Master Plans and the Rules for Public Engagement.Two members of the adjacent community just to the west of the main entrance attended to provide us with more information on the parking problem caused by visitors to our open space parking in that small community. The Board resolved to support the neighborhood in its efforts to resolve safety and congestion issues there. There will not be a regular Board meeting in December. We wish all our members a happy holiday season!
