ARIZONA - Comment Period for Coronado NF Draft FLRMP & DEIS Extended Through March 6

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Coronado National Forest (Forest Service) has prepared a Draft Forest Land and Resource Management Plan (FLRMP) and Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Revision of the FLRMP (DEIS). The final land management plan will replace the current plan, written in 1986, and provide guidance for managing 1,783,639 acres of National Forest System lands for the next 10 to 15 years.

The proposed plan, programmatic draft environmental impact statement and plan set of documents can be found at the following web address:  http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/coronado/landmanagement/planning/?cid=fswdev7_018702.

The 90-day public review and comment period, which began on November 23, 2013, has been extended an additional 14 days, ending on March 6, 2014. This comment period is not related to the Rosemont Copper Project.  Interested parties may submit comments to the following:

This proposal is scheduled to be voted on by the end of the month, so it is imperative for you to take action today! Utah's Grand County, home to Moab's world class OHV trails, has been participating in Congressman Rob Bishop's Public Lands Initiative, a plan to resolve some of Utah's most contentious public lands issues, including Wilderness and OHV use.

Federal Plan Threatens OHV Access In Nevada Desert
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the Las Vegas area is currently fronting a draft plan that could eliminate or greatly restrict both casual and event-based OHV recreation on approximately 3 million areas in Southern Nevada. The draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) creates an unjustified risk that might preclude "dry washes" from being designated as OHV routes. The elimination of dry or sand washes from subsequent project level travel management plans could functionally close the desert if they are not capable of being designated as routes, because motorized travel would be "limited to designated roads and trails."
