At this time, the Pike and San Isabel Resource Advisory Committee (PSI-RAC) is accepting project proposals. The deadline for submittal is August 15, 2014.  Proposals must be submitted online at the PSI-RAC website. LINK to FORM

Some background: The PSI-RAC works closely with the U.S. Forest Service to recommend projects that will benefit forest health, fish, wildlife, US_ForestServicesoils, watersheds and other resources; maintain roads, trails and other infrastructure; or control noxious weeds. Proposals will be accepted by both the U.S. Forest Service and cities and counties located in the designated counties.

PSI-RAC projects must be located on National Forest System lands in Larimer, Chaffee, Huerfano, Lake and Park counties or on other nearby lands if the project will benefit the resources on the National Forests. Projects can be completed by U.S. Forest Service personnel, through partnership agreements or by open-bid contracting with individuals and corporations.
