Project FAQs

Will the Backcountry’s wildlife and habitat be harmed by these buildings?

The impact to the wildlife and habitat is minimal, if any. The location of the two buildings is an already ‘developed’ area immediately adjacent to Highway 85 and the Law Enforcement Training Facility. The location is at the doorstep to the all-important conservation area of the Backcountry Wilderness Area, but not in it, so to speak. The Backcountry is more than 8,000 acres in total, the sites in question are less than three acres and in an ideal location to be minimally impactful.
