  • Adus Dorsey, Leslie Crossland, Cory MacNulty, Zachary Bolick, Larry Lucas
  • Convener: Adus Dorsey, Phone: 435-691-0173, Email: , Title: Mayor of Torrey


  • Adus is the mayor of Torrey.
  • Larry is a recreation and trails planner for the Uintah-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
  • Leslie is the superintendent of Golden Spike National Historic Site.
  • Cory and Zach are with NPCA.


  • Adus has yet to hear anything from Capitol Reef about getting together for a meeting so that they're informed about what's happening in the Park. Many from the group encouraged Adus to reach out to them himself and see what their reaction is.
  • Cory and Zach are hoping to bring together the Gateway Forum design team with the CAT conveners so as to form a leadership team.
  • Cory and Zach are hoping to launch by the beginning of March. The website will include links to funding opportunities.

Where to Focus?

  • This team could help identify sources for funding and continuously update the website list. For example the rural fastrack grant from the state recently changed to include tourism businesses.
  • Grant writing is an issue for some small communities and so it might be worth exploring the possibility of holding a rural community grant writing workshop. Also, how could we encourage a partnership between grant writers and local communities?
  • People would like to see a list of successful collaborative projects on the website that break down the projects into funding resources and what work worked and what didn't work. The Bonneville shoreline project might be a good example of this.

Next Steps

  • Adus will reach out to six counties folks to see if any are interested in joining our conversation.
  • The next meeting will be held on Feb 24th at 2:00 pm. Cory and Zach will send out a reminder for this.
