The Bureau of Land Management's Arizona Strip Field Office is beginning development of a Travel Management Plan/Environmental Assessment (TMP/EA) for the Littlefield, St. George Basin and Colorado City route designation sub-regions, see maps below.
The goals of this TMP are to:
- Provide sustainable access for public needs and experiences;
- Protect natural and cultural resources and settings;
- Promote the safety of public land users; and
- Minimize conflicts among the various users.
Preliminary route inventory maps will be available for public review beginning April 18 on this site.
More detailed printed route inventory maps will be available at the Interagency Information Center, 345 E. Riverside Drive, St. George, UT and at the public scoping meetings between April 18 and 21, 2011. Join us for one of the public meetings listed below (all are 4-7 pm local time, except for the Kaibab Village meeting which will be from 5:30 – 7 pm):
Beaver Dam, AZ
Beaver Dam Fire Station
630 N. Highway 91
Kaibab Village, AZ

Public comments received will be used to define issues to address in the EA, develop the range of alternatives and refine the proposed action. Public comments will be accepted throughout development of this TMP/EA but will be most effective if received no later than June 17, 2011.
To submit comments or be included on the mailing list and receive further information regarding this project, see "How to Get Involved."
Maps of the Preliminary Route Inventory Areas are available. (The maps below are mostly poster-sized, and 3-5 M.)
