Abstract

Annual population growth rates in the Rocky Mountain West are now three times greater than those of the United States. The new settlements there is of a more permanent, intrusive nature than the old boom and bust towns ; there are now 35 acre ranchettes for the ex-urbanites and sprawling commercial developments around national parks. Management of the Rocky Mountain landscape must now focus not on public lands, but on land use decisions regarding private lands. They discuss the System for Conservation Planning (SCoP) that supports local community planning in colorado through the use of interactive GIS. - (SLD)
