NOTE: For maps with both seasonal closures and routes, and other maps shown at the open houses in June, 2013, go to the open house Web page.

 
Please note also:
 
  • As you're reading and commenting on the draft RMP on the ePlanning website , you can click on any map link in the document to go directly to the map. A complete numerical list of all the maps (with links) is in Appendix R.
  • If you have the draft RMP on compact disk (CD): The maps cited in the document are in a separate folder on the CD.
  • If you have the printed version of the draft RMP: Maps are in Appendix R--Maps Cited within the DRMP. 
  • Because of their large size, comprehensive travel management route maps (Maps N1-a through N1-e) are not incuded in the printed versions of the draft RMP. These larger maps can be found on the CD or online (i.e., in the table below or on the ePlanning website) or at the main Mesa, Delta and Montrose County libraries.

    How can I use Google Earth to look at some of the areas under consideration?
 

KML map files are available for many allocations being proposed in the draft RMP. You can download and save these files, then open them in Google Earth, a free application from: http://www.google.com/earth/index.htmlClick on a map in the list below to download the KML file for that map.
