YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE!! April 27, 2015, is the deadline for public comments on the Draft Resource Management Plan/Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft RMP/EIS) for the Nevada Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District, Sierra Front and Stillwater Field Offices.Once finalized, the Nevada Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District, Sierra Front and Stillwater Field Offices’ RMP will provide management direction for almost 5 million acres of public land in northern Nevada.Currently, the DEIS might be interpreted to preclude designation of “dry washes” as an OHV route. The elimination of dry or sand washes from interim management prescriptions or subsequent project level travel management plans could functionally close most of the desert because motorized travel would be “limited to designated roads and trails.” As OHVers know, washes are often the historic backbone of any desert-based route network.  Washes either function as a trail or trails traverse them. BRC is concerned the DRMP/EIS does not clearly codify future “area” designations in the document.  BRC believes it is important for the agency to describe a strategy for the designation of staging/camping areas. Area designations may also include future “play” areas or other open areas where said use is an important recreational experience. The agency should grant itself broad authority to designate varying acreages (using historical and anticipated use patterns) from 1 to 20 acres or more for said uses. BRC believes the agency should develop a process to expedite the approval of competitive and other permitted events that are well-known, historic, and reoccurring. This can be accomplished through known “pre-approved” routes from which an event organizer can choose....

NATIONAL CALL TO ACTION!

NATIONAL CALL TO ACTION Help save Moab’s Trails Deadline March 31, 2015 From the BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) The Grand County Council has identified over 100 miles of road closures in its proposed Public Lands Initiative (PLI) plan to be submitted to Representative Rob Bishop. This proposal is scheduled to be voted on by the end of the month, so it is imperative for you to take action today! Utah’s Grand County, home to Moab’s world class OHV trails, has been participating in Congressman Rob Bishop’s Public Lands Initiative, a plan to resolve some of Utah’s most contentious public lands issues, including Wilderness and OHV use. BRC, our member clubs and other stakeholders, including counties, have been involved in the process from the beginning: Utah Land Use Legislation: Threats and Opportunities, Key Players After last November’s elections, Grand County’s new Council initiated a process to put finishing touches on its recommendations to Congressman Bishop. OHV users, including Ride with Respect (RwR), Moab Friends-For-Wheelin’ and the Red Rock 4-Wheelers have been participating. For the most part, the process had been proceeding in a reasonable direction. Sadly, the situation has taken a turn for the worse. Less than twenty-four hours prior to a public hearing on the matter, the new Council removed measures that would have secured long-term OHV access. Before OHV users had a chance to analyze and assess the proposal, the County officially finished the draft plan for submission to Bishop that would close over 100 miles of roads and trails! Grand County’s Draft Plan would eliminate the 10 Mile Wash Road and impose seasonal closures on Hey Joe Canyon,...
