Havasu Travel Management Planning Update
Public Open House Scheduled


Lake Havasu City, Ariz. - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lake Havasu Field Office will hold a public open house on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, to discuss the Havasu Travel Management Plan (TMP). The meeting will be held at the Nautical Inn located at 1000 McCulloch Boulevard North, Lake Havasu City, Arizona, from 6 to 8 p.m.

There will be a brief presentation about travel management planning at 6 p.m., followed by time for residents and interested parties to individually speak with local BLM specialists and managers regarding their questions and concerns.

“We want to give the public an update about what has been happening with the Havasu Travel Management Plan,” said BLM Lake Havasu Field Manager Kim Liebhauser.  “We want to be transparent and update the public throughout the process.”

Written comments about the Havasu Preliminary TMP/Environmental Assessment will be accepted until April 7, 2013. Comments postmarked by this date will be considered in making the final decision. The comments should be specific to be most effective. Comments should be mailed to the BLM Lake Havasu Field Office, Attention: Jen House; 2610 Sweetwater Avenue; Lake Havasu City, Arizona 86406; or through email to jhouse@blm.gov.

The Havasu TMP planning area generally includes public lands in the Lake Havasu Field Office south of Interstate 40 (both sides of the Colorado River), extending to five to seven miles north of the Bill Williams River.  The Havasu TMP is the second part of a multi-year travel management project. The first plan was the Bullhead TMP which was done with extensive public involvement from 2006 - 2009.  The Havasu TMP is the second of six TMPs contained in the Lake Havasu Field Office.

For more information about the open house, please contact Jennifer House at 928-505-1263.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
