The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Boise District Office (BDO) is beginning the scoping period for two Comprehensive Travel and Transportation Management Plans (TMP) and encourages your participation and involvement during the next 30 days.  You can provide input in two different ways.

The Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 directs BLM to complete a comprehensive TMP for all public lands in Owyhee County.  The Boise District BLM has grouped the public lands in Owyhee County within the Boise District into five subregions or Travel Management Areas (TMA) for the purposes of this TMP effort.  All five TMAs were part of the inventory efforts started in 2004 and completed in 2012 with extensive public involvement and BLM validation.

The two subregions that are the focus of this scoping effort are the Canyonlands East, which consists of 1,521 miles of routes between the Northwest Pipeline and the Bruneau River, and 435 miles of routes within the portion of the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area (NCA) (South) in Owyhee County. Travel management planning efforts for the other three TMAs within the Boise District, Canyonlands West, Grand View, and Silver City, will follow later in 2017 through 2018.

The BDO is presenting two Environmental Assessments (EA) for your comment.  Each of the EAs presents 4 alternatives and associated transportation systems to access uses within the TMA.  For more information, including maps, please visit the webpage.  Please provide your comments by December 15, 2016.
