<br />SEWARD PORT AND COMMERCE ADVISORY BOARD <br />RESOLUTION 2000-004 (Wille) <br /> <br />A RESOLUTION OF THE PORT AND COMMERCE ADVISORY <br />BOARD RECOMMENDING THAT THE SEWARD CITY COUNCIL <br />SUPPORT MULTIPLE USE TRAILS AND OUTDOOR <br />RECREATIONAL SPORTS, WITH RESPECT TO THE CHUGACH <br />NATIONAL FOREST REVISED LAND MANAGEMENT PLAN <br /> <br />Whereas, outdoor recreational sports and their participants are a <br />valued winter industry in the Seward area; and <br /> <br />Whereas, this industry provides jobs and a benefit to the local <br />economy in the City of Seward and the surrounding area and the board <br />recognizes the positive economic impact of outdoor recreational activities; <br />and <br /> <br />Whereas, the board recognizes the importance of involvement of <br />its citizens in winter recreational activities and the need for citizens to <br />access the Chugach National Forest; and <br /> <br />Whereas, this board agrees with the Forest Services' concept of <br />conserving fish and wildlife habitat while providing diverse recreational <br />opportunities; and <br /> <br />Whereas, the board recognizes that the current limited access to the <br />Chugach National Forest concentrates various user groups in the same <br />areas, accentuating conflict between groups. Improving overall ingress, <br />with new trails for recreational uses, would permit access to a greater area <br />of the National Forest and reduce user conflict; and <br /> <br />Whereas, the board deems all recreational users should have access <br />to trails in the Chugach National Forest, and that these trails should not be <br />further restricted to anyone user group; and <br />
