BLM Carson City District Office TMP/RMP - Round 1

BRC submitted it's comments to the BLM. April 30th was the Deadline for the Scoping comments.

You can read BRC's Comments here:

BRC Comments on BLM TMP/RMP Scoping

Quote:
BRC's Don Amador and Del Albright have been working with various OHV clubs across California and Nevada on various issues related to this important planning effort. Both Del and Don report that many OHV clubs are very involved and have been in contact with the BLM planning team.

Del and Don report that the BLM has been receptive to the concerns of the OHV community. Naturally, everyone is approaching the process with a bit of trepidation. These are popular recreation destinations, and the greenie groups are going to try to eliminate as much OHV and mountain bike recreation as they can.

Our update includes several important issues. One is that the BLM will be conducting a Resource Management Plan and Travel Plan simultaneously. This "two plans in one" paradigm has been done in most BLM offices, and a successful plan can result. However, it mandates that the entire recreation community get involved early on in the process.

This means that, except for designated "open" areas (such as Hungry Valley), most of the office will be moving to "travel limited to designated roads and trails," and BLM's new "comprehensive travel management" rules limit ALL modalities to designated routes. Equestrian, and mountain bikers take note!

Another update we have is a "rumor control" notice. It is NOT TRUE that BLM is proposing the elimination of target shooting. This office has some "urban interface" and popular family recreation areas were target shooting is likely to be limited. However, they are not proposing a total ban.

To their credit, the Carson City office is planning to host several travel workshops this summer and fall. BRC will be involved, but we can't be effective without the involvement of local OHV clubs and OHV enthusiasts. We'll let you know when and where the meetings are going to be held.

Learn more on the Carson City office RMP revision webpage HERE. To the left of the page there are links to documents, reports, planning timeline, info about issues, maps and other goodies.
Here is the BRC Action Alert from 4/27/12

http://www.sharetrails.org/alerts/20...m-rmp-revision

Next up, we wait for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement to be released.

Scoping comments always tend to be general in Nature, and BRC's comments generally describe what they have received in feedback from users in Nevada and California who use these areas about to go under the knife.

Know that these comments encompass many uses, and we need the 4x4 people to get specific when it comes time to protecting 4x4 access. We also need 4x4's to generally comment about our support for all uses. It is very important to not portray any type of user conflict within our own motorized access groups, the Cattle Ranchers etc.

We need to make sure that above all else we do not put down other uses, but we really need to make sure that we promote our own.

We need to get a lot more hard core with these agenda 21 pushers. They WILL make it so you can't even walk in the woods if they get their way. The end game is ugly. They use incremental steps. All steps must be fought, no matter the size.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District is collecting information on roads and trails to help implement a comprehensive travel system for all modes of travel (motorized and non-motorized) as part of the Resource Management Plan (RMP) effort. Public workshops were held in October to obtain input from the public and other stakeholders and provide information on the travel management planning process.

There are two basic information needs:

1. Routes that are popular for the 4x4 folks. They need to know if there are any important routes that aren't on the maps.

2. Ideas on areas for "intensive" OHV management. Moon Rocks is the obvious one, but there may be others.

BLM initially tried to keep a Nov. 30 deadline hard and fast. But thanks to the polite persistent persuasion from OHV advocates in the area, the BLM has agreed to continue to take information through the next month or two. Data that comes in after 60 days or so will be difficult to get incorporated into the drafts.

For additional information, contact John Stewart, jstewart@mac.com or 619-508-8840


Here is the last alert on the travel meetings from BlueRibbon Coalition:

I was at the last one in sept.
the BLM was actually very helpful. We submitted a request to "adopt a trail" for eldorado canyon down in Dayton.
Haven't heard anything about it though.
One of the directors even offered to speak at our monthly club meetings to answer any questions and address concerns, which well be taking her up on for feb.
