U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIORBUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Red Rock/Sloan Field Office will host public meetings on Thursday, June 26, 2014 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (Red Rock) Visitor Center classroom. The informational meeting will provide an overview of proposed 13-mile scenic drive and visitor center parking lot improvements.
Proposed projects on the 13-mile scenic drive include constructing low profile bridge crossings at both Sandstone and Red Rock wash crossings and flood warning sensors at three additional wash crossings. Proposed projects at the visitor center parking lot include making minor changes to the existing layout, repairing or replacing the pavement, reconstructing the bus loading area, resigning and striping.
The public comment period for the Environmental Assessment on these projects will be open from June 11 through July 11, 2014.
This open house is part of a series each month to give the public an opportunity to meet BLM staff, get information about projects and planning, and ask questions about the management of Red Rock and Sloan Canyon National Conservation Areas and Walking Box Ranch.
When participants enter the fee booth at the entrance of the 13-mile scenic drive, they should tell the attendant that they are participating in the open house and fees will be waived.
