ROSEBURG, Ore. - On Tuesday, December 12, the Roseburg Bureau of Land Management hosted an open house for the community to discuss what they'd like to see done with Swiftwater Park.
The park was previously owned by Douglas County but is now owned by the BLM. It's a popular spot for hiking and fly fishing.
Staff with the BLM said they held the open house because it's imperative to them that the public feels their getting the most out of their recreational space and that their voices are heard in the process.
”So you know we have a real active community here in Douglas County. People get out and they utilize these lands, so we’d like to get feedback on how they would like to see these lands managed," said Cheyne Rossbach, the Public Affairs Specialist with the Roseburg BLM.
Rossbach said if people weren't able to attend the open house not to worry. He said they can come in to BLM's office any time. They'll have specific comment forms for this matter.
He also said they plan to hold another event similar to the open house in the future.
