The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District is collecting information on roads and trails to help implement a comprehensive travel system for all modes of travel (motorized and non-motorized) as part of the Resource Management Plan (RMP) effort. Public workshops were held in October to obtain input from the public and other stakeholders and provide information on the travel management planning process.
There are two basic information needs:
- Routes that are popular for the 4x4 folks. They need to know if there are any important routes that aren't on the maps.
- Ideas on areas for "intensive" OHV management. Moon Rocks is the obvious one, but there may be others.
BLM initially tried to keep a Nov. 30 deadline hard and fast. But thanks to the polite persistent persuasion from OHV advocates in the area, the BLM has agreed to continue to take information through the next month or two. Data that comes in after 60 days or so will be difficult to get incorporated into the drafts.
Here is the last alert on the travel meetings from BlueRibbon Coalition:
