CARSON CITY, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Sierra Front Field Office is initiating a 30-day scoping public comment period seeking input regarding the proposed Centennial Trails Project, a non-motorized trail system located on public lands managed by the BLM in the Consolidated Municipality of Carson City, Washoe, Storey, and Lyon counties, on the northeastern side of Carson City.

“We welcome any comments the public may have on this proposal and encourage them to share any information, issues or concerns that may need to be considered in the development of the environmental assessment,” said Carson City District Manager Kim Dow.
