Byway committee continues efforts

MEEKER — The Scenic Byway committee continues to discuss ways to market the unique passageway between Meeker and Yampa.
On June 4, the Flattops Historic and Scenic Byway committee met in the basement of town hall.
Present at this meeting, in addition to the usual committee members representing Yampa and Meeker, was Sally Pearce, the Colorado State Department of Transportation scenic byway coordinator.
The committee discussed several items pertaining to methods to stretch the budget to cover all the items originally scheduled into the work plan with the huge increases in fuel costs and marketing expenses.
Pearce discussed upcoming scenic byway events and also assisted the committee with the process of potentially rearranging priorities and budget items.
The Scenic Byway committee is considering the possibility of adding both sites to the Flattops Historic and Scenic Byway or advertising the sites as additional attractions.
