Gladie 'Visitor Center'
« on: August 29, 2002, 01:38:06 AM »

Remember a few months back when I was fishing for some info on that project at Gladie?  Well I think I got some perspective on the whole timeline thing and some interesting tidbits.

Seems the environmental analysis for the vistor center was completed ten years ago.  In 1992 Forest Supervisor Dick Wengert signed off on the decision, just before some nation wide moritorim on new vistior centers was handed down.  The FS recently received money for a cultrual and environmental center from Congressman Hal Rogers.  So they are building a cultural and environmental center at Gladie, NOT a visitor center.  It was also said this thing is supposed to be open in October of 2003.  No word yet if they are going to get Don Fig a new chair.

I don't think that Don wants a new chair, and I don't think anyone wants to try and take the Mayor's chair from him.
