BLM Seeks Input on the Proposed Carson Valley Discovery Trail
Carson City, Nev. -- The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Sierra Front Field Office is seeking the public’s assistance to identify concerns and to offer suggestions for the preparation of an environmental assessment for the Carson Valley Discovery Trail. The project is proposed by the Carson Valley Trails Association (CVTA), a community-based organization focused on providing non-motorized recreation opportunities for the general public. The proposed project area is in the Pine Nut Mountains in Douglas and Carson City counties.
The BLM would like to hear about any existing concerns or conflict of uses.
The project proposal will be presented to the Carson City Board of Supervisors and the Douglas County Commissioners on Thurs., Nov. 1, 2012. The Carson City Board of Supervisors meeting is 9 a.m., 851 East William Street, in Carson City, and the Douglas County Commissioners meeting is at 1 p.m. at 1694 County Road, Emergency Operations Center in Minden, Nev.
A public workshop on the proposal will be held on Wed., Nov. 14, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the Pinon Hills Elementary School, 1479 Stephanie Way, in Minden, Nev.

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. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2011, recreational and other activities on BLM-managed land contributed more than $130 billion to the U.S. economy and supported more than 600,000 American jobs. The Bureau is also one of a handful of agencies that collects more revenue than it spends. In FY 2012, nearly $5.7 billion will be generated on lands managed by the BLM, which operates on a $1.1 billion budget. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
