BILL SUMMARY for HB16-1106



SENATE COMMITTEE ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Refer House Bill 16-1106 to the Committee of the W PASS







02:02 PM -- HB 16-1106



Senator Grantham and Senator Garcia, co-prime sponsors, described the provisions of House Bill 16-1106 concerning county authority to designate pioneer trail. The reengrossed bill allows a board of county commissioners to designate, by resolution, any public roads in the county as a section of a pioneer trail. A pioneer trail consists of public roads that follow original routes of travel of national historic significance. To make such a designation, the board must identify all of the roads that make up the pioneer trail. If a county designates any portion of a state highway as a pioneer trail, the designation is not effective until the General Assembly, acting by joint resolution, also designates the portion of the state highway as part of the pioneer trail. The board may not designate a pioneer trail across public lands on a road administered by the federal government unless the road is designated as open to travel by the federal management agency. The county may post, or allow to be posted, identifying and informative signs related to the pioneer trail along county roads.
