    COLORADO - FS Seeks Public Comments on South Rampart Travel Management Plan
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The Pike & San Isabel National Forests' Pikes Peak Ranger District, located in the central Colorado, announced that the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the South Rampart Travel Management Plan is now available for review and comment. Written comments on the three Draft Alternatives will be accepted during the 30-day comment period which ends Monday October 17, 2011.

    The purpose of this project is to determine which motorized roads and trails and non-motorized trails on National Forest (NF) lands within the planning area are important in providing a diverse, functional and sustainable transportation system that balances resource protection, public safety, and current and anticipated recreational demands and budget constraints.
    BRC along with our partners, the Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO), are reviewing the documents and will have additional information soon. Check out COHVCO on their website at http://cohvco.org. Please consider supporting this great organization.
    The Draft EA can be found online at www.southrampart.net. In addition to the Draft EA, this site details the history of the project and public process to date. Maps for each Draft Alternative are also represented. Email comments should be sent to comment@southrampart.net. Written comments may also be mailed to: AECOM, Attn: South Rampart Draft EA, 240 E. Mountain Ave., Fort Collins, CO 80524.
    Printed copies of the document and CD versions of the Draft EA are available at the Pikes Peak Ranger District located at 601 South Weber Street in Colorado Springs. If you would like a copy mailed to you, please contact the office at 719-636-1602.
    For additional information, please contact Frank M. Landis, Supervisory Outdoor Recreation Planner, by E-Mail flandis@fs.fed.us or by phone at 719-477-4203.
    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
    Thanks in advance for your support,
    Ric Foster
