Environmental Assessment,Finding of No Significant Impact DOI-BLM-OR-B060-2009-0058-EA Planning Completed
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Burns District, conducted an analysis of recreational facilities and activities within and adjacent to Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Area (CMPA). This Comprehensive Recreation Plan (CRP) Environmental Assessment was first released in March 2014. A Sept. 2014 ruling from the Interior Board of Land Appeals (IBLA) on the Nov. 2007 Decision regarding the Steens Mountain Travel Management Plan (TMP) changed some information for the CRP concerning TMP-designated "obscure routes." This second opportunity for public comment on the CRP addresses the BLM's proposed management plan for the 33 segments (totaling approximately 36 miles) of obscure routes. The BLM is soliciting comments specifically on Alternative A (No Action) and Sub-alternative B (Modification of Additional Routes). Route analysis forms can be found here: http://www.blm.gov/or/districts/burns/plans/steens-rec/index.php
