 ARIZONA - BLM Releases Final Environmental Assessment for Havasu Travel Management Plan

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lake Havasu Field Office has released the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Havasu Travel Management Plan (TMP). The plan identifies a system of roads, primitive roads and trails, and the terms for their use and maintenance. Additionally, it outlines facilities to be developed in support of recreation through creation of new routes, and closure of other routes. The travel network identified in the TMP comprises both motorized and non-motorized trails. The Final EA provides analysis of the TMP and four alternatives considered during the planning process.

The document can be viewed online at http://www.blm.gov/az/st/en/prog/travel_mgmt/lhfo/hav-tmp.html. The public may also request this document by contacting the BLM Lake Havasu Field Office at 2610 Sweetwater Avenue, Lake Havasu City, Arizona 86406; by e-mailing BLM_AZ_LHFO@blm.gov; or by calling 928-505-1200.
 
Public availability of the Final EA begins the final phase of the planning process. It provides an opportunity for administrative review and filing of an appeal by any person who believes they will be adversely affected by the decision. Written appeals must be postmarked no later than 30 days after the document was signed, or by October 4, 2013.
 
The Havasu TMP planning area includes public lands in the Lake Havasu Field Office south of Interstate 40 (both sides of the Colorado River), extending five to seven miles north of the Bill Williams River.  The Havasu TMP is the second part of a multi-year travel management project. The first plan was the Bullhead TMP, which was completed with extensive public involvement from 2006 - 2009.  The Havasu TMP is the second of six TMPs encompassed within the Lake Havasu Field Office's jurisdiction.
 
For more information about the Final EA, please contact the Lake Havasu Field Office at
928-505-1200.

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