District Ranger Kevin Warner and the U.S. Forest Service hosted nearly a dozen members of the Bioregional Visioning Circle (BVC) on Oct. 24. The meeting began with a tour of the current Sopris Ranger District office and continued with a conversation in the conference room. Although BVC is at odds with the current plan to demolish three buildings and remove several trees, the meeting proceeded respectfully. Asked what they can do to help the district office keep funding for renovations while exploring other options, Warner made it clear they’re not interested in changing the current plan, with a company already under contract to begin the work. “I don’t want anything to do with trying to reuse buildings that are 85-plus years old,” he said.
