Approximately every ten years, Colorado Springs undertakes a Master Planning process for the parks system. As KRCC’s Michelle Mercer reports, this time around, the economic downturn and recent natural disasters are affecting the planning process.
The search for a missing hiker in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains has been suspended after eight days, according to Custer County officials. KRCC’s Maggie Spencer reports that hiker Mark Stice of Arvada has not yet been located.
Stice’s wife reported him missing more than a week ago when he failed to return from a camping and hiking trip that began the week prior. Search teams found the hiker’s vehicle at the South Colony trailhead south of Westcliffe.
