Final Council recommendation (Nov 2006)

Funding category: Expense

Recommended budgets: FY07: $0 | FY08: $0 | FY09: $0


ISRP final recommendation: Not fundable


This was a generic proposal addressing broad environmental problems in Clear Creek. Sponsors were asked to respond with a specific proposal to overcome problems identified at the Hoodoo Creek culvert and a culvert on the West Fork Clear Creek, including a basis for, and a projection of expected numerical, biological benefits from the actions. A convincing argument that exotics would not be provided access to presently uninhabited areas, and an M&E component were also requested. The Tribe responded to this, and a group of 20+ other reviews, with a generic memo and ranking of all their proposals that included the results of the local review process and the Tribe’s priority ranking of all their proposals. The Tribe assigned this proposal a second tier priority. The Tribe did not provide a project-specific response for this proposal as was included for higher priority proposals. Consequently, the ISRP’s concerns were not addressed, and the ISRP recommends not fundable.
