Public Input on Roads and Trails Sought During Travel Management Workshops


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District will be 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. Public workshops will be held to obtain input from the public and other stakeholders and provide information on the travel management planning process.

The workshop objectives are:

• 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.

The workshops will be held on October 10, from 5-7 p.m., in Reno, Nev., at John Ascuaga’s Nugget Poolside Terrace Room, 1100 Nugget Avenue, on October 16, from 5-7 p.m., in Fallon, Nev., at the Fallon Convention Center, 100 Campus Way, in Fallon, on October 18, from 5-7 p.m., in Minden, Nev., at the Carson Valley Inn, Pinenut/Douglas Room, 1627 U.S. Highway 395 North.

BLM staff will be available to answer questions. Comment forms will be provided to collect public input. 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).

Input gathered during the workshops 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.

For more information regarding the workshops or the RMP, 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.
