    • Local governing agencies
    • Incorporated municipalities
    • Counties
    • Lands owned by state agencies
    • Any landowner with vegetation on their property
  • The Act stipulates that the board of county commissioners of each county in the state shall adopt a noxious weed management plan for all the unincorporated lands within the county.
  • In April of 2020 the Mesa County Board of County Commissioners approved the Mesa County Noxious Weed Plan.
