Arkansas River Travel Management Plan Environmental Assessment

The BLM is proposing supplementary rules for public lands included in the Arkansas River Travel Management Area in Chaffee, Custer, and Fremont Counties, Colorado. These rules would implement several decisions from the Arkansas River Travel Management Plan (TMP), approved on May 21, 2008. The proposed supplementary rules address off-road vehicle use, mountain bike use, and recreational target shooting.

A Federal Register notice for the proposed supplementary rules for the Arkansas River TMP was published on July 23, 2010, which began the 60-day public comment period. The public comment period will end on September 7, 2010. The four proposed supplementary rules are provided in the Federal Register notice. Click here , to view a copy of the Notice of Proposed Supplementary Rules.

Written comments should explain the reason for any recommended change and should reference, where possible, the specific section or paragraph of the proposed supplementary rules that the comment is addressing. Comments may be mailed or hand-delivered to Leah Quesenberry, BLM Royal Gorge Field Office, 3028 E. Main St., Cañon City, CO  81212; or emailed to rgfo_comments@blm.gov  with "Proposed Supplementary Rules" on the subject line. Comments must be postmarked or electronically dated before the deadline.
