Comments Due to BLM on Travel Management November 30


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District is collecting information on roads and trails to help implement a comprehensive travel system for all modes of travel (motorized and non-motorized) as part of the Resource Management Plan (RMP) effort. In October, the BLM held public workshops to obtain input from the public and other stakeholders and to provide information on the travel management planning process in Reno, Fallon, and Minden, Nevada. Comments will be accepted until Nov. 30, 2012.

The workshop objectives were to:

• Provide an overview of how travel management and route designations coincide with the RMP effort.
• Obtain information on routes, uses, and conflicts in high-use areas on BLM-administered lands.
• Have participants identify existing access points and other issues regarding travel on BLM-administered lands.

For more information and to view the draft route inventory maps go to: www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field.html (Click on the link to the Carson City District Resource Management Plan Revision, and then the link to maps).

Comments received will help the BLM create a comprehensive route inventory. This route inventory will form the basis for a system of designated routes to guide all modes of travel in the Carson City District. A range of route designation options will be presented for public comment alongside the Draft RMP, currently scheduled to be released in spring 2014.

Before including address, phone number, email-address, or any other personal identifying information in your comments, be advised that your entire comment, including personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. While individuals may request that the BLM withhold personal identifying information from public view, the BLM cannot guarantee it will be able to do so. If you wish us to withhold your personal information you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment. We will make all submissions from organizations or businesses, available for public disclosure in their entirety.

For more information, please contact Colleen Sievers, project manager, at: 775-885-6000.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
