How to get Involved 
Public Meeting
Thank you to all who provided comments during the initial comment period.

The Bureau of Land Management Malta Field Office started the initial 90-day scoping period on April 5, 2016, with a public meeting in Malta. 

The BLM is seeking public input on motorized vehicle, OHV, snowmobile, and other motorized and non-motorized transportation uses on public lands in the Little Rockies Travel Management Planning Area located in Phillips County, Montana.


Comments may be submitted by email or by regular mail.   You can send an email or letter that includes your name and address or there is a Comment Form that can be downloaded, printed and returned by regular mail or as an email attachment.  The Comment Form is located on the Documents page.
 
 
 
 
In the winter of 2017/2018, the BLM will have a second comment period for review of the proposed travel management plan and environmental analysis (EA).  Once information on that comment period becomes available, it will be posted to this website.

Comments may be sent to the project lead, Kirsten Boyle, at BLM, Havre Field Office; RE: Little Rockies TMP; 3990 Hwy 2 W; Havre, MT 59501 or at kboyle@blm.gov. 
 The initial comment period has ended, but comments will be accepted at any time during the planning process.  Due to the volume of comments, the BLM has revised the completion of the environmental analysis and the TMP to Fall 2017.

To be considered, all comments must contain the name and address of the submitter.  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.


During the initial comment period, BLM asked for your comments on issues, travel routes, route uses, and how the BLM should manage motorized vehicle, OHV, snowmobile, and non-motorized public travel to develop a range of management options to address the issues in the TMP area.  To be the most useful, make your comments as specific as possible: Include the WHERE  WHAT  WHY HOW WHO
