UTAH - BLM Seeks Public Input on ATV Trail Proposal in San Juan County

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah Monticello Field Office is seeking comments during a 40-day public scoping period for the proposed Recapture Canyon All-Terrain Vehicle Trail System Right-of-Way (ROW) requested by San Juan County, Utah. The purpose of the public scoping period is to identify relevant issues that could influence the environmental analysis, including development of alternatives and guide the planning process.
  
The BLM is considering a proposal by San Juan County, Utah, for a ROW for an All-Terrain Vehicle system east of Blanding, Utah, including a route in Recapture Canyon. The components of the proposed action consist of 14.25 miles of trails, three trailheads (staging areas) and signage.

The proposal will be available for public review and comment on the Environmental Notification Bulletin Board at:  https://www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/index.php (search for project name "Recapture Canyon Trail-Right of Way Application").
 
Written comments will be accepted by letter or email until January 26, 2014. Please note that the most useful comments are those that contain new technical or scientific information relevant to the proposed action. 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 "Recapture Canyon ROW" when submitting comments.

Written comments may be mailed or emailed using the following:
