BLM to hold virtual public meeting to review a Route Inventory for the Bear River Divide

KEMMERER, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office will host a virtual public meeting on May 12 to gather input on the route inventory for the Bear River Divide Area.

The public will be able to review route inventory maps, discuss and identify recreation and access opportunities, and learn more about being involved in this effort. The goal is to: circulate information collected in the field, introduce the planning process, and solicit comments from the public that will aid future planning.

The meeting will be available virtually. It will begin with a presentation and will allow for the public to ask questions about the planning process and route inventory in the general area. The public is asked to register for the Zoom virtual meeting via:

  • Online: Visit rb.gy/uuaty7Once you have registered you will receive an email containing instructions on how to join the meeting.
  • Phone: Call 307-828-4500. An operator will register you and provide you with details on how to join the video conference by phone.
    • If you are using the phone-only option, you will be able to listen to the public meeting, but you will not see the presentation. Instructions will be given during the presentation regarding how you will be able to provide your oral comments.

 

Materials will be viewable live and posted on the project website before the meeting, at https://arcg.is/1iaf4y as well as available for individuals who cannot attend. Hard copies of the presentation are available upon request.

 

“Public involvement is critical in helping us identify existing routes and current use that will maintain public access to lands managed by the BLM,” said Kemmerer Field Manager Aaron Mier. “We want to hear from the public about their use of the existing routes.”
