Hope that got your attention.
cool smile


Actually I am looking for a good lawyer and man am I in a hurry
(the Draft Environmental Impact Statement comment period for the speculative Wolf Creek Village (10,300’) at Wolf Creek Pass, Colorado Land swap -comment period cut off is end of September! )

Specifically a lawyer experienced in USA Public Lands Laws. ~ perhaps even from Alaska

In particular the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act ANILCA

In compliance with its statutory obligations under Section 1323(a) of the Alaska National Interest
Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA, discussed in detail in Section 1.10, below), the Rio Grande NF
had determined that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was required to analyze the request
for access to the private inholding.

{let me try that again… I have sort of a three ring circus going on right now.}

My question specifically would be to verify what a lawyerly guy told me:
Can it be argued that ANILCA’s previsions regarding road access were passed because of the massive amount of Federal acquisitions - so that the many people who suddenly found themselves surrounded by US Forest Service had legal recourse to road access to their land.


Therefore it could be argued that it is inappropriate for a speculator who knowingly swapped/purchased a prime parcel of landlocked US Forest Service real estate within the boundaries of an established (Rio Grande) US National Forest - to claim that ANILCA gives him a legal right to demand access for a high traffic road to said parcel?

If anyone should know someone, but don’t want to broadcast, please consider a PM to me or simply forward this to them.
Thanks.

Heyya, you know in it’s way I consider some of you folks friends so I hope you don’t mind me decompressing over here… a little.

I’ve finished* one of the most productive weekends of my life, a genuine marathon.
A wonderful perfect storm of timing… plus a weekend totally alone to produce something… many things, in writing.
Something that’s hopefully good enough to make an impact in the outcome of an important local issue. 
More fun than installing stairs & windows… not that that isn’t fun and fulfilling in it’s own way.    red face
And now I’m finished with both the marathon posting at NO-VillageAtWolfCreek.blogspot.com and my Memes Courier summarizing all those VWC-DEIS blog posts, and ok a bit gloating… glowing…  Er, having a couple beers.  cool smile


Check it out.  If’n you’re curious   cheese

*Still some {always some} mopping up, of course, but excepting for one sort of epilogue post it’s finished and it feels good.

Wow, that is indeed a lot of work.

I didn’t chime in here because I know nothing of these laws (I’m not even frmo Canada) and I don’t know anyone who is. But, it’s always nice to see people who actively oppose apparent sociopaths who are willing to destroy resources to get ahead. After watching some of Ken Burns’ National Parks series, I have a bit better inkling of just how much there has been a constant push-and-pull between people who exploit natural resources without care, and people who want to preserve and share them with future generations.
