BLM is seeking community participation in this planning effort.
Provide information about recreation use and needs:
Members of the public and local municipalities are encouraged to collect information to inform this analysis. It can be provided to the BLM during the official scoping period which starts in March 2012 and continues through April 2012.
What should I collect?
- Where do you camp?
- Do you use certain trails?
- Horseback Riding
- Mountain Biking
- Where do you picnic?
- Where do you park?
- Are there areas where signs would be helpful?
- What kind?
- What messages?
- Recreation Improvements
- Are there areas that should be improved?
- In what way?
- For what use?
- Places to Restore
- Historic sites
- Rock art
- Wildlife habitat
- Springs, guzzlers and other water developments
- Place Names
- Roads and destinations
- What is the source of the name?
- How long has the name been in use?
Participate at public meetings:
The second opportunity to get involved is to attend the public scoping meetings. These will occur in March 2012 in the following communities:
- Las Vegas
Meetings are open to the public. They will be conducted as open houses. Date, time and exact locations of these meetings are still being determined. We will advertise the meetings once we have locations reserved.
Provide written scoping comments:
The public will have 60-days to send their comments and recreational information to the BLM to inform the Recreation Analysis. The comment period will begin the day after the last scoping meeting.
Participate by reviewing the draft Recreation Analysis:
BLM will publish a draft Recreation Analysis for public comment. This is scheduled for fall of 2012. Request to be added to our mailing list to get notification when the draft is released by sending your name and address to the following email address.
