NEVADA - FS Requests Public Input Regarding Review of Ely Travel Management Plan

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Ely Ranger District, Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, is requesting public input regarding the Ely Ranger District Motor Vehicle Use Maps (Travel Plan) to determine what changes may be needed to designated roads and trails open to motorized use on the Ely Ranger District.

Travel Management regulations provide for revision of designated roads, as needed.  As the Ely Travel Management Plan has been implemented, Ely District staff has received comments from the public that there are roads that were overlooked, roads that may not be passable to the vehicle class identified and roads and trails that may need different designations.  Between now and November of 2012, Ely District staff are requesting public comments and participation to identify where changes need to be made to the Ely Ranger District Motor Vehicle Use Maps (Travel Maps).

Over the next eight months, Ely District staff will hold a series of open houses with extended office hours for the public to look over maps and talk about specific concerns.  The following are the dates and times for each open house:

    Saturday, March 24, 2012, from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.
    Wednesday, May 15, 2012, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.
    Monday, July 23, 2012, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.
    Friday, September 21, 2012, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.

All of the open houses will be held at the Ely Ranger District Office on 825 Avenue E., in Ely. In the meantime, interested parties are encouraged to review the Ely Ranger District Motor Vehicle Use Maps, which are available at the office at the address above or on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest web site at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/htnf/home/?cid=stelprdb5246242
