Since Logan Canyon Highway became part ot the National Forest Scenic Byway
Program, not much new water has gone under the bridge. To be honest, I am not
sure what the designation means. We have a title, but not much else yet; it
seems as if we get to chart our own course. We are willing to do that, but to
date we haven't had time to do much. I have heard the State plans to include
the designation on their maps.
My own idea is to tell the story with appropriate signs, improve the condition
of our campgrounds and picnic grounds so they complement our visitors
experience, and set esthetic and other standards for the highway by more clearly
defining the standards and guidelines contained in the Forest Plan. I see a
very carefully managed highway, designed to enhance the esthetic quality of the
canyon, and perhaps an information station or two.
If we do get to chart our own course, then I would like to organize a small
committee of interested, participative citizens to help us define the standards.
I'll keep you posted.
