The Proposed Action would result in BLM issuing Special Recreation Permit(s) (SRP), allowing Recreational Vehicles (RV’s and trailers) and Air Carrier Vendors to operate at the Burning Man event on public lands in Pershing County, Nevada for a one-year period (2012). The 2012 Burning Man Event (authorized 06/12/2012) is a temporary city, Black Rock City (BRC), 8.5 miles northeast of Gerlach that will be developed on the Black Rock Desert playa. The city will accommodate a maximum of 60,900 participants. The permit period will extend from July 29 through September 17, with the actual event occurring August 27 through September 3, 2012.
Currently there are ten RV and Trailer vendor applications on file. RV services would include delivery and set up of the RV’s and trailers for customers at the event. Reference the attached Special Recreation Stipulations for Recreational Vehicle Vendors.
Currently there are eight Air Carrier vendor applications on file. Air Carrier services would include the use of a temporary airstrip, and airport parking allowing vendors to shuttle participants to and/or from the event. Please reference the attached Special Recreation Stipulations for Air Carrier Vendors at Burning Man 2012 for specific mitigation measures.
