Public Meetings Scheduled for Rock Springs Travel and Transportation Management Plan


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office (RSFO) will host three public meetings seeking input in drafting a Comprehensive Travel and Transportation Management Plan (CTTMP) which will be analyzed as part of the Rock Springs Resource Management Plan (RMP) revision. 

The CTTMP will be used to designate BLM-managed routes within the boundaries of the RSFO as either open, closed, or limited to specific uses. The BLM is specifically interested in hearing how, where, and why people access their public lands and issues related to such access. This includes, but is not limited to, commercial access for grazing, oil and gas development and mining; recreational access for hunting, off-highway vehicle (OHV) use, hiking, and biking. The CTTMP will be incorporated into the on-going Rock Springs RMP revision planning effort. 

The public is invited to attend one, or all of the following meetings which will be held from 4-6:30 p.m. at the following dates and locations:

Tuesday, Nov. 13:
Holiday Inn
1675 Sunset Dr.
Rock Springs, Wyo.     
Wednesday, Nov. 14:
Lyman Town Hall Courtroom     
100 E. Sage St.
Lyman, Wyo.
Thursday, Nov. 15:
Eden Valley Community Center
4039 Highway 191 N.
Farson, Wyo.

The meetings are part of the 60-day public outreach which continues until Jan. 11, 2013. Written, substantive comments may be submitted via email, mail, or hand-delivery to the RSFO during regular business hours (7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m.):

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.
