COLORADO- BLM Seeks Comments on Norwood-Burn Canyon Comprehensive Travel Management Plan 
 
Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Uncompahgre Field Office is seeking public comments on the preliminary Norwood-Burn Canyon Comprehensive Travel Management Plan Environmental Assessment (EA). The preliminary EA analyzes four alternatives for an inter-connecting trail system on about 9,850 acres of public land managed by the BLM, about three miles west of Norwood, Colorado.

Alternatives were developed considering the existing off-highway vehicle designations and conditions on the ground such as impacts to sensitive resources, public input, existing recreational uses, route condition and administrative access. The proposed action in the preliminary EA would modify the travel system from about 35 miles of routes to include more than 40 miles of motorized and non-motorized routes.  About 17 miles of existing trails would be closed and rerouted as needed to preserve natural resources and prevent erosion.

To review the environmental documents and maps associated with the preliminary EA, go to http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/BLM_Information/nepa/ufo.html. Written comments should be submitted by Tuesday, May 6, 2014, to the Uncompahgre Field Office, Attn: Norwood-Burn Canyon Travel Management, 2465 S. Townsend Ave., Montrose, CO 81401, blm_co_ufo_tmp@blm.gov or by fax to 970-240-5368.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment-including your personal identifying information-may be made publicly available at any time.  While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

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