WYOMING - Casper BLM Hosts Scoping Meeting on Bates Hole Travel Management Plan

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

On June 28, 2013 the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Casper Field Office is hosting a public scoping meeting on the Bates Hole Travel Management Plan. The meeting will be from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Casper Field Office, 2987 Prospector Drive.

The plan will address off-highway vehicle use and the designation of roads and trails within the Bates Hole Travel Management Area located west of Casper and south of Highway 220.

The scoping meeting is a starting point in which the public can identify issues to be addressed in the plan. Issues already identified include damage to vegetation, sensitive soils, important wildlife habitats, minerals, rights-of ways, additional transportation needs, motorized and non-motorized recreational use, and the impacts of off-route motorized use.

Written comments should be submitted by July 19, 2013, and addressed to: Bureau of Land Management; Attention: Kathleen Lacko; 2987 Prospector Drive; Casper, WY 82604. Please include "Bates Hole Travel" in the subject line. Comments can also be submitted via email to: casper_wymail@blm.gov.
