BLM Grand Junction Accepting Comments on 27 Special Recreation Permits


GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.—The Bureau of Land Management Grand Junction Field Office is accepting public comment on 27 Special Recreation Permit applications. Applications are available for review at 2815 H Road in Grand Junction. Comments are due by Nov. 30, 2009.

The BLM requires SRPs for commercial activities, as well as for competitive and organized group events on BLM public lands.

“We want to hear from the public regarding compliance history, potential conflicts with other users, and health and safety,” SRP Administrator Mike Jones said. “Comments can also help us determine whether these SRPs support our objectives in recreation management and resource protection.”

The BLM uses a permit system for managing economic aspects of recreation, and to ensure sustainable and diverse recreational opportunities for visitors. The BLM collects “fair value” on behalf of the public when these activities take place on public lands, while managing commercial recreation to protect the natural resources that make recreation on public lands desirable.

For more information on these SRP applications, or to find out whether or not your activity on public lands requires an SRP, contact Mike Jones at (970) 244-3044 or mike_d_jones@blm.gov.
