Monument billed as Rim Rock Canyons National Park

Colorado National Monument would become Rim Rock Canyons National Park under legislation drafted by a five-member group of Grand Valley residents.

U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., and U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo., unveiled a bipartisan proposal today to redesignate the monument as a national park. The proposal, drafted based on community recommendations, does not constitute an official bill, and both legislators said they hope to hear feedback from residents on the draft proposal.

The legislation would establish an advisory committee to advise the park manager, prohibit the establishment of buffer zones and protect the access to the park by Glade Park residents.
