Maps of the BLM Yuma Imperial Hills Travel Management Plan (TMP) have been added to the webpage for public review. The maps are available to view and download at the Maps link to the right. As part of the travel management planning process, BLM has initiated a 4-month public scoping and comment period, beginning on June 12, and ending by close of business on October 12, 2015.
The comments may identify any issues that should be addressed in the Imperial Hill TMP Environmental Assessment. You may also comment on specific route designations in regards to the four alternatives, including the No Action Alternative. Comments should be specific to be most effective. Comments should be mailed to the BLM Yuma Field Office, Attention: Ray Castro;
The Imperial Hills TMP is between Hidden Shores RV Park on the south and the community of Martinez Lake on the north, Yuma Proving Ground on the east, with the Colorado River marking the western boundary in the BLM Yuma Field Office.
For more information on the Imperial Hills TMP, please contact Ray Castro at the BLM Yuma Field Office at 928-317-3251.
In 1972, President Nixon signed Executive Order 11644 which mandated the designation of routes as either open, closed, or limited on all Public Lands. Route designation is accomplished through a Travel Management Plan. Travel Management Planning evaluates and designates both motorized and non-motorized use.
