Pinon Canyon Expansion Meeting

Hundreds of people gathered in Pueblo on Saturday to find out more about the proposed expansion of the Army's Pinon Canyon Maneuvering Site.

Senator Ken Salazar along with local officials and Pentagon representatives.. held an open forum discussion with those living in the proposed area.

The Army is considering the possibility of expanding the current site from 250-thousand acres.. up to as much as one million.

Doing so would put hundreds of ranchers out of business..

Army officials told the audience.. the proposal is still.. only.. in the planning stages.
