The National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management have entered into a partnership with the City of Delta and the Interpretive Association of Western Colorado (IAWC) to establish an interpretive center at Fort Uncompahgre highlighting the Old Spanish Trail, a national historic trail.
Chris Miller, (IAWC) executive director, is working on plans to dedicate the interpretive center at 440 N. Palmer Street, Delta, during the first annual Colorado Old Spanish Trail Days Sept. 16. Fort Uncompahgre was the only trading post located along the entire Old Spanish Trail between Santa Fe and Los Angeles.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
