According to a news article in this week’s Bitterroot Star, a proposed land swap near the Stevensville bridge would lead to an improved Fishing Access Site (FAS).
State Senator Fred Thomas made the proposal to the Stevensville City Council on behalf of the landowner. The land trade would be between the City of Stevensville and the land owner, but a Memorandum of Understanding would commit MFWP to develop and maintain the project under its FAS program. The proposal envisions parking spots for both truck/trailer units and single vehicles, and would include a concrete latrine.
MFWP supports the proposal, as do former BRTU Chapter President Eddie Olwell, and the Ravalli County Fish and Wildlife Association. BRTU has not yet taken a position on the project, and no action was taken at the meeting by the Stevi City Council.
