The Carbon County Board of Commissioners appointed the Carbon County WPLI Advisory Committee in 2016. The purpose of the committee is to conduct a collaborative review process of the Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) in Carbon County. The Advisory Committee will develop and submit a proposed management recommendation for the WSAs and related lands in the county for consideration by the Board of County Commissioners. The Board of County Commissioners will review the WPLI Advisory Committee’s recommendations, and if approved, take official action to establish a final WPLI recommendation for the county. The Wyoming County Commissioners Association, in cooperation with the office of the Governor and the offices of the Wyoming federal delegation, will review the Advisory Committee recommendations and to the maximum extent practicable, include them in a legislative draft to be introduced in Congress.
The Advisory Committee is representative of persons with interests in the designation and management of WSAs in Carbon County. Although it is recognized that Advisory Committee members have multiple interests and may participate in discussions from various perspectives, for organizational purposes each Advisory Committee member has been assigned to an interest category below:
John Espy (Co-chair)
Dave Throgmorton (Co-Chair)
