In 2018 Moab's Mayor called Focus Group Meetings with individuals and entities concerned about congestion and resource impacts at the Powerdam area after meetings in 2017 and 2016 did not yield a clear path forward to address increases in recreation at the Powerdam.
Work to involve the community and present results subject to revision as the process moves forward
Public Input Survey
Mill Creek Canyon in Moab has seen a dramatic increase in recreational use in the last few years, resulting in significant impacts to natural and cultural resources, public safety hazards, and impacts to nearby neighbors. While the canyon and Powerdam, the busiest trailhead, are on BLM land, the issues affect the City of Moab, Grand County, nearby residents, user groups, and others with an interest in the canyon. Representatives of these agencies and groups are now working together to come up with recommendations for the community.
Meetings and other activities targeting a wide range of community groups who use Mill Creek Canyon will be held to gather relevant information about Mill Creek and how you, the Moab community, uses the creek and how you feel about the place. The information gathered will be used to direct the goals and objectives of managing and protecting Mill Creek Canyon. Take this survey, and stay tuned for future opportunities to get involved.
