  The BLM Uncompahgre Field Office is seeking public comment on the proposed Shavano Gateway Recreation Area.  The 44-acre site would provide an off-highway vehicle (OHV) training and obstacle course and staging area for the Rimrocker Trail, with facilities such as restrooms, picnic tables, cabanas, grills, and informational signage.  The proposal includes building 20 miles of non-motorized single-track trail and streamlining the evaluation of recreational events on BLM-managed public land adjacent to the site.



 
  The BLM recognizes that these types of projects improve quality of life for local residents and draw tourists to Montrose to enjoy amazing community amenities and public land resources.  The BLM may ultimately convey this public land to Montrose County under the Recreation and Public Purposes (R&PP) Act.  The Montrose County Landfill and Buckhorn Lakes Recreation Area are other examples of R&PP Act projects.   30-day Public Scoping Period began April 8, 2019 and runs through May 8.  Please describe your concerns or how you may be affected by the proposed project.  Comments can be emailed to jpmoe@blm.gov or mailed to 2465 S. Townsend Ave. Montrose, CO 81401, Attention: Jana Moe.

The BLM hosted an Open House on Thursday, April 25 at the Montrose County Event Center in Montrose, Colorado, with over 40 in attendance.  Written scoping comments were accepted at that time.
