Resident and Nonresident Discussion
The GFP Commission requested a work group be put together to have an informed and open discussion regarding resident and nonresident outdoor opportunities. The goal was for members of this work group to help commissioners develop guidelines to allocate recreational opportunities available to residents and nonresidents. Feedback from the work group was used to present suggested guidelines to the Commission. The commission considered these guidelines, made any necessary changes and asked for public input as well.
The criteria was formally proposed at the April 2019 Commission meeting in Rapid City. The criteria was then finalized at the May 2019 Commission meeting in Custer. The audio of these discussions can be found in the Commission Meeting Archive.
The adopted criteria can be found here.
