COLORADO - BLM Initiates Comprehensive Transportation and Travel Management Plan

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management has announced a public scoping period for travel and transportation management in the White River Field Office in northwestern Colorado.

The White River Field Office is beginning an Environmental Assessment that would amend its 1997 Resource Management Plan to determine which areas within the 1.5 million-acre field office would be open to cross-country motorized and mechanized use, which would be limited to designated routes, and which would be closed to motorized and mechanized vehicles.

Once the amendment is complete in 2017, the field office will begin route-by-route analyses in those areas where travel is limited to designated routes.

The BLM will host public meetings to provide more information and accept written comments November 16, 2015, at the White River Field Office in Meeker, 220 E. Market St.; and November 18, 2015, in Rangely at the Recreation Center, 611 S. Stanolind Ave. Both meetings run from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

Public comments on the preliminary planning issues and criteria found at http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/wrfo.html will also be helpful. Comments will be most effective if received by December 4, 2015.

More information about how to comment can be found at http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/wrfo.html. Comments may also be sent to blm_co_wrfo_tmp@blm.gov or by mail to Heather Sauls, BLM White River Field Office, 220 East Market St., Meeker, CO 81641.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
