Showdown over Trump’s plan to overhaul landmark law’s environmental reviews heads to Colorado

Hearing on NEPA set for Denver as 50-year-old law guides environmental reivew of project in Vail Valley The ill-conceived Berlaimont Estates project and its proposal to pave a 26-foot-wide road across 4.5 miles of Forest Service land and critical elk winter habitat, outside of Edwards is gaining statewide notoriety, as the Trump administration aggressively works to gut the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
