Little Mountain Decision Record Available


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office announced today that the Decision Record for the Little Mountain Travel Management Plan (TMP) Environmental Assessment (EA), as amended in 2010, has been signed.

A TMP for the Little Mountain area was developed by the Cody Field Office in 2005 and 2006. Public input was sought from 2004 to 2006 through public meetings and comment periods. Throughout the spring of 2010, the BLM worked with the public, county and state governments and other federal agencies to resolve travel management issues. In support of this, the BLM hosted field trips and a listening session to discuss the initial implementation of the Little Mountain TMP.

As a result of additional information gained from these outreach efforts, the Cody Field Office has amended the Little Mountain TMP. The amended TMP addresses the public and administrative concerns with regard to access needs, while protecting resources, promoting safety and minimizing conflicts among various uses on public lands.

Copies of the Decision Record, the amended Little Mountain TMP EA and the Little Mountain Travel Management Map are available online at: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/cyfodocs/littlemountain.html or at the Cody Field Office located at 1002 Blackburn Street in Cody. In addition, the public will find updated maps and information at key access points in the Little Mountain area.

For more information, please contact the Cody Field Office at (307) 578-5900.



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.
