BRC's Action Alert subscribers already know that the Tahoe National Forest released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for Motorized Travel Management for public review and comment. Kudos to California's OHV community for vigorously participating in this important travel plan.

That vigorous involvement is a good thing because, unfortunately, the Tahoe's draft plan is significantly flawed and needs to be changed.

Grand Junction BLM Revising Resource Management Plan-Public Input Needed

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Grand Junction Field Office, is asking the public to help identify issues to be addressed as they begin revising their Resource Management Plan (RMP) for 1.2 million acres of public lands located primarily in Mesa and western Garfield counties, in western Colorado.

The RMP is the basic document used to guide land use decisions and management actions on public lands for 20 years or more. The first step in this process is to work with interest groups and the public in identification of management issues. To achieve this, the BLM encourages the public's participation in scoping meetings.

This "scoping" period, which runs through Jan. 9, 2009, gives the public the opportunity to identify issues to be addressed in the plan revision before BLM begins drafting it by becoming involved early in the process.

The public is encouraged to stop by one of three open house meetings anytime between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to talk to BLM specialists, learn more about the revision, and provide comments. An informal presentation will be given at 6 p.m. each night. Attendance at these open houses is not required to submit scoping comments to the BLM.

The open houses are set for the following days:

Tuesday, December 2, 2008
Whitewater/Kannah room at Two Rivers Convention Center
159 Main Street
Grand Junction, CO

Wednesday, December 3, 2008
Grand Center
82 North 500 West
Moab, UT

Thursday, December 4, 2008
Collbran Auditorium
102 Main Street
Collbran, CO

Scoping comments may be mailed to BLM GJFO RMP, 2815 H Road, Grand Junction, CO 81506, faxed to 1 (866) 625-0707, or e-mailed to GJFO_RMP@blm.gov.  Scoping comments will be most helpful if they are specific and received by January 9, 2009.

For further information about this plan revision and how to provide scoping comments, log on to www.blm.gov/co (select Grand Junction from the map), or contact Matt Anderson, Planning and Environmental Coordinator, at (970) 244-3027.

A draft of the Resource Management Plan Revision is expected to be released for a 90-day public comment period in early 2010.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

Arizona Trails 2010 Planning Workshops

Seeking Public Input on Arizona's Trails
Arizona Trails 2010: Statewide Motorized and Non-motorized Trails Plan

Arizona State Parks is seeking input from the public and land managers during Regional trail workshops to provide information on public trail priorities on both motorized and non-motorized trail issues.  (see below for list for dates and locations).

Arizona State Parks is midway through the public involvement process for the Arizona Trails 2010 Plan.  The Plan identifies the needs, attitudes and preferences of Arizona's recreational trail users, both motorized and non-motorized, and provides recommendations to focus trail management efforts. The Plan also determines funding priorities for the Trails Heritage Fund, Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Fund and the federal Recreational Trails Program.

The next step in the public involvement process is a series of regionally based workshops for interested citizens and for land managers. Staff from Arizona State Parks will be holding meetings in eight locations throughout the state, (see below for list for dates and locations).

These workshops are the time to discuss new ideas and trail needs and issues of regional concern, to explore questions in more detail than can be asked in a survey format, and to gain a better understanding of regional perspectives. We also want to know what you think are the priorities that land managers should focus their time and resources. 

~Public and Land Manager Workshops~

How to Provide Public Input

Participate in one of the eight workshops listed below. Morning meetings will focus on land manager discussions and evening meetings will focus on trail users and interested citizens (both motorized and non-motorized trails)

Email your input to:
          trails2010@azstateparks.gov 

Mail your comments to:
          Trails 2010
          Arizona State Parks
          1300 W. Washington
          Phoenix, AZ 85007

Since this planning effort is for a statewide plan that sets state policy, we won't be soliciting input on individual trails or on the federal travel management changes.
