Public invited to open house for review of Kingman Travel Management Plan

KINGMAN, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kingman Field Office (KFO) invites the public’s participation in the review of the KFO Travel Management Plan and Environmental Assessment. 

Travel management is an approach to recording networks of roads for travel and transportation including areas for both motorized and non-motorized uses.  Travel management planning is necessary for designating and providing appropriate access to and across public lands for a variety of uses. 

This Travel Management Plan and Environmental Assessment includes Bagdad, Black Mountains, Cerbat Mountains, Crozier, Goodwin Mesa, Hualapai Mountains, Music Mountains and Poachies. It will also include the White Hills Travel Management Areas and encompasses Kingman, Bullhead City, Golden Valley, Chloride, Wikieup, Bagdad, Meadview, Dolan Springs, White Hills, and Wayside in Mohave, Yavapai and La Paz counties.

During the three (3) open house meetings, maps of the proposed travel network and other alternatives will be available for review. BLM staff will be available to answer questions and receive comments on the project.

The open houses will be held Aug. 21-23 at Hualapai Elementary School, Suddenlink Community Center, and the Owens School respectively.
