| October 7, 2009 | 0 Comments

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Caliente Field Office, located in southeastern Nevada, is asking for public input regarding the development of the Chief Mountain Special Recreation Area Management Plan (RAMP) and Environmental Assessment (EA).

The Chief Mountain Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA), which is located approximately two miles northwest of Caliente, Nevada, contains 413 miles of roads, off-highway vehicle routes and trails. The Chief Mountain RAMP could include, but is not limited to, designating motorized and non-motorized trails, limited route closure to eliminate duplicate routes, and development of new trails and/or additional trailhead facilities.

The BLM is seeking public input during this initial scoping period, to help identify issues of concern that should be addressed in the Environmental Assessment.

The formal 30-day public input period concludes at 4:30 p.m., November 6, 2009. Submit written comments to the Bureau of Land Management, Caliente Field Office, PO Box 237, Caliente, NV 89008. Submit electronic comments to CM_RAMP@blm.gov.
