Dear Colleagues,

Today, CSU joined with Governor Hickenlooper to announce the formation of an independent review team to examine the planning and execution around the recent Colorado State Forest Service prescribed burn in the Lower North Fork area. USFS Forest Supervisor Bill Bass from the Big Horn National Forest will lead the review team.

CSU fully supports this review, and I know that we all will respect the protocols established by the review team. It is my expectation that all of us at CSU and in the CSFS will cooperate with the team’s efforts in whatever ways are necessary to allow them to conduct a thorough, independent review. If you have any questions or need guidance on this, please contact the Office of General Counsel.



Dr. Tony Frank
