The Proposed RMPA/EA and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is open for a 30-day protest period beginning Sept. 12. The temporary closure will remain in place through the planning process.

The Airport Mesa area has been under a temporary closure order for target shooting since 2009, due to safety concerns raised by U.S. Border Patrol agents working within close proximity to the recreational shooting area. The U.S. Border Patrol has identified Airport Mesa as a critical location for their efforts to monitor and patrol the U.S.–Mexico border and has requested that the area be closed for target shooting to protect agents who are potentially in the line of fire or in danger of ricocheting bullets.
The Proposed RMPA/EA is posted on the BLM-CA El Centro Field Office webpage at http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/elcentro.html.
For more information regarding the closure, please contact the El Centro Field Office at (760) 337-4400.
