    NEVADA - BLM Seeks Public Comments on Recreation and OHV Route Planning
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Southern Nevada District is seeking public comments to identify issues and concerns that should be analyzed as they prepare a Recreation Area Management Plan (RAMP) and Comprehensive Transportation & Travel Management (CTTM) Plan -- with an associated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) -- to designate off-highway vehicle use for the Las Vegas Field Office.
    A Notice of Intent, published in the January 28, 2011, Federal Register, formally opens a 60-day public scoping period for the EIS. Comments on issues may be submitted in writing until March 29, 2011. The dates and locations of any scoping meetings will be announced at least 15 days in advance through local media and the BLM web site at: www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/lvfo.html.
    Comments may be submitted by mail or delivered to Bureau of Land Management, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130, Attn: Marilyn Peterson, by e-mail to LVFO_RAMPS@blm.gov, or by fax to 702-515-5023 (Attn: Marilyn Peterson).
    All documents pertaining to this proposal may be examined at the Southern Nevada District, Las Vegas Field Office. Additional information will be posted online at the Southern Nevada District web site at: www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/lvfo.html.
    To be most helpful, comments should be submitted within 30 days of the last public meeting to be considered for incorporation into the Draft RAMPs/CTTM/EIS.
    For more information regarding the public comment meetings or the proposed project, contact Marilyn Peterson, Project Manager at (702) 515-5054, or email LVFO_RAMPS@blm.gov.
    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
    Thanks in advance for your support,
    Ric Foster
    Public Lands Department Manager
