UTAH- BLM Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Recreation Permit in Eastern Utah

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Monticello Field Office (MFO) has announced opportunities for the public to share comments and ideas relating to a Special Recreation Permit (SRP) application for an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Safari in San Juan County.
 
The BLM is considering a proposal by the City of Monticello, Utah to host and conduct guided ATV tours on 16 designated routes, also called trails, in areas throughout the Monticello and Moab Field Offices.
 
The BLM will be preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) on the proposal, and they invite the public to provide input on preliminary issues and planning criteria for the EA.  A reasonable range of alternatives will be developed to respond to identified issues. Each alternative will outline solutions to the issues and concerns identified.
 
The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the planning process. Additional information about the proposed project is now available for public review and comment on the Environmental Notification Bulletin Board (ENBB) at: http://www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/index.php; search for project name "ATV Safari."

Written comments will be accepted by letter or email until June 30, 2013. Please note that the most useful comments are those that identify issues relevant to the proposed action or contain new technical or scientific information. Comments should be as specific as possible. Comments which contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response, but may be considered in the BLM decision-making process. Please reference "2013 ATV Safari" when submitting comments.
 
Written comments may be mailed to Bureau of Land Management, Monticello Field Office, Attn: Recreation Program, P.O. Box 7, Monticello, UT 84535, or emailed to blm_ut_mt_comments@blm.gov.
 
For further information, contact Robert Lever at (435) 587-1519.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
