Trail advisory board seeking new representative


Utah State Parks and Recreation is seeking an individual interested in representing non-motorized trail users on the Utah Recreational Trails Advisory Council (URTAC).

"We are looking for someone to represent the interests of non-motorized trail users in general," said Trails Program Coordinator John Knudson.

URTAC reviews requests for matching fiscal assistance funding for non-motorized trail projects throughout Utah and provides recommendations to the Division and Board of Utah State Parks and Recreation on trail issues.

The nine-member council consists of individuals representing the interests of hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, cross-county skiers, Utah League of Cities and Towns, Utah Association of Counties, USDA Forest Service, and USDI Bureau of Land Management.

The council also includes one member-at-large who represents the interest of non-motorized trail users in general.

Council members are appointed to three-year terms by Utah State Parks board members and Division Director Courtland Nelson.

Interested individuals may receive an application and/or additional information by contacting John Knudson, trails program coordinator at (801) 538-7344.
