DNR comment period extended

Update email from DNR (comment period extended thru SUNDAY):  

September 16, 2010

Hi, folks:

We are winding down to the last days of our online forum on recreation. Thanks to everyone who participated! We've had a great response, but still need to hear from folks from all walks of recreation life. We've extended the forum through midnight this Sunday, September 19. You can respond to any of the day's "conversation starters."

Tomorrow's final conversation starter will be about user fees for access to DNR-managed land. Here's the question we will post tomorrow morning:

Friday, September 17 Conversation Starter – User fees

In this week's discussion on recreation, funding has been a continual theme. We've heard clearly that many of you would support:

∙       Restoring NOVA.
∙       Lifting the lid on the fuel tax refund.
∙       Paying a user fee.

As an alternative to further reducing services or closing recreation areas, we'd like to know more about your thoughts on user fees. What do you think is a fair and equitable user fee that would maintain safe and sustainable recreation access on DNR-managed lands?
