About the Colorado Resource Advisory Councils

Colorado has three resource advisory councils within its borders: Rocky Mountain, Northwest and Southwest, aligned with the District Offices, the Northwest RAC includes the Northwest District and Upper Colorado River District offices. Each RAC is comprised of 15 members representing a balance of public land resources and users.

Colorado's RACs meet about four times a year, at locations throughout their area of responsibility. All RAC meetings are open to the public and opportunities are provided at each meeting for the public to address the RAC. Meeting minutes are made available to the public within 30 days after each meeting.
