Blueribbon Coalition Action Alert!

BLM Releases Moab Field Office Proposed RMP for Public Review

BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

BLM Releases Moab Field Office Proposed RMP for Public Review

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Moab Field Office released their Proposed Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) last Friday. The documents and maps are here: http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/moab/...l_rmp_eis.html.

To answer your questions... we don't know! We just finished downloading all of the info this morning, so we haven't looked at what has changed since the Draft Plan and this Proposed Plan.

Clif Koontz from Ride with Respect (RwR) was looking over the information and sent us an email saying the BLM has some "interesting" proposals!! Clif has been doing yeoman's work on this plan, by the way, and BRC really appreciates what RwR does. (You can join and support the work RwR does here: http://www.ridewithrespect.org/supp27.php).

Based on some of Clif's comments, there are some poison pills in the Proposed Plan. It is likely it will need to be altered before it is signed into effect. The window of opportunity for action is short, so we'll be updating you soon.

The Moab BLM, to their credit, has posted detailed maps on the Proposed Pplan and the other Alternatives. To look at what the BLM wants to do, scroll down to Map 2-11-C Designated Routes-Proposed Plan (ALT C) and Map 2-11-E (C) Designated Motorcycle Routes-Proposed Plan (ALT C MOTORCYCLE ROUTES). Also important to read is Appendix E Moab Field Office Recreation Rules and Appendix F, Special Recreation Management Areas: Goals, Settings, Outcomes/Management Prescriptions.

Take a quick look and if you have any concerns or comments, let us know.

Thanks for your attention,

Brian Hawthorne Ric Foster

There is a lot of information there.

Would it too lazy of me to ask that once you review all the information, that we could get some of the highlights?

Broke That,

It would be to much of you to ask me, BUT once BRC diseminates all that info I am sure I will get another email, and I would be more than happy to relay it here .......Also I have noticed a few land use gurus(del & john) already onboard here that I am sure will guide us when the have worked their way thru it.
And BRC is always available to take your calls. Brian and Ric will be getting into it
