The BLM held a series of initial public meetings in November 2010 to initiate planning, gather initial comments, and begin to collect information about access and motorized route usage in Owyhee County. These meetings served as the initial opportunity for reviewing the base maps that will be used during planning.
Planning is about gathering complete inventory information and using it to manage motorized transportation on public lands in the planning area, in this case, Owyhee County west of the Bruneau River. The goal of planning is sound, sustainable management for multiple use — not to close off access.
The BLM greatly appreciates attendance at public meetings and highly values the comments received. As future meetings or workshops are scheduled, information will be posted on this webpage.
