Glenwood Springs Forest Service office to close for 3 days

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — The White River National Forest Supervisor’s Office will be closed May 7 through May 9 in preparation for a six month temporary move in July.

Acting Forest Administrative Officer Collette Simons spoke about the closure.

“Closing our doors will ensure a safe environment for not only the public, but our employees who will be engaged in the large scale clean-up efforts.”

The Forest Service office at 900 Grand Avenue will be closed from July 1 through the February 2014 in order to renovate the office for a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Built in 1917, the building at 9th and Grand Avenue was originally called the Federal Building and housed the Glenwood Springs Post Office downstairs with federal government offices on the second floor.

Bringing the older building into the modern era of energy efficiency is part of a nationwide Forest Service Sustainable Operations program that follows the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and implements two executive orders.

More information about the six month temporary move will be issued by the forest as the July moving date approaches. For more information contact Bill Kight at 970-945-3237 or
