BLM's Bakersfield Field Office Hosts Information Meeting for Case Mountain Access


The Bureau of Land Management's Bakersfield Field Office will host a public information meeting on July 9 in Three Rivers to discuss progress on the opportunity to acquire additional lands and public access to the Case Mountain area.

The workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at Three Rivers Memorial Building, 43490 Sierra Drive.

This meeting will follow up on the information, ideas, and concerns the community expressed during the May 29 public workshop in Three Rivers. Using this feedback, the BLM has developed some alternatives to address access to public lands and the potential acquisition of a portion of the Craig Ranch. The BLM will present these alternatives, including large-scale maps and engineering plans of the proposed infrastructure.  These presentations will be followed by the opportunity to review area maps and ask questions of BLM staff.

"We look forward to the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with the public, the community of Three Rivers, on how access to Case Mountain should be managed since BLM may acquire this key property adjacent to public lands," said Gabriel Garcia, Bakersfield Field Office manager. "This is the public's opportunity to help us ensure the most feasible and viable alternatives have been considered."

For further information on the public workshop, contact Peter De Witt at (661) 391-6120, email: pdewitt@blm.gov. The public is invited to submit written comments on the Case Mountain potential Craig Ranch acquisition before July 21 by email to: pdewitt@blm.gov or by mail to: Attn: Outdoor Recreation Planner, Bakersfield Field Office, 3801 Pegasus Drive, Bakersfield, CA 93308.
