Status Reports and Legal Update
April 6, 2015: ROAR Filed an Appeal in U.S. Federal District Court:
We invite you to JOIN ROAR or DONATE to help us protect The Arkansas River and Bighorn Sheep Canyon.
Previous Federal Action
Federal Court Ruling: On Friday, January 2, 2015, Judge William J. Martinez (Federal District Court, Colorado) issued his opinion upholding the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) approval of Christo's "Over the River" (OTR)Project along the Arkansas River in Bighorn Sheep Canyon.
While the Court found that BLM 'technically' complied with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Federal Land Policy Management Act (FLPMA), in no way does the court dismiss the destructive nature of the Over the River project.
Note: The OTR project continues to be indefinitely delayed with no estimated start date for construction and no display date.
