2017 01 24 Coronado National Forest Making Fee Changes

The Coronado NF has started yet another review of their developed recreation sites to decide which ones to close and which ones should increase fees. We first saw these reviews in 2006, under the name Recreation Site Facility Management Planning (RSFMP). After public controversy erupted they changed the name to Recreation Facility Analysis (RFA). In 2016 they changed the name again, to Recreation Site Analysis (RSA). Now they’re calling it Restructuring Developed Recreation (RDR). All these acronyms and name changes are nothing but lipstick on a pig. It’s always been about making recreation pay its own way in fees or shutting it down. A series of public meetings is being held, but as usual that is theater. They’re gonna do this.
