    IDAHO - BLM Accepting Comments on Bear Lake Travel Plan
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pocatello Field Office is developing a Travel Management Plan (TMP) for motorized routes in the Bear Lake region. This process began in November 2009, with a series of public meetings followed by a route inventory in 2010, to identify travel management issues. Information gathered through the scoping meetings and the route inventory was analyzed and used to develop three alternatives.
    Public involvement is critical during the development of the travel plan. The BLM will be accepting written comments during a 30-day comment period that ends March 24, 2011. These comments will be used in the development of an environmental analysis with a reasonable range of alternatives that will ultimately determine the routes to be designated for motorized travel.
    The public can send written comments on issues or concerns they may have regarding the proposed travel routes to the Bureau of Land Management, Pocatello Field Office, Chuck Patterson, 4350 Cliffs Drive, Pocatello, Idaho 83204.
    Alternatives and maps of the travel management planning area and travel routes can be viewed or downloaded on the Internet at http://www.blm.gov/id/st/en/fo/pocatello/travel_management.html.
    For more information, contact the Pocatello Field Office at 208-478-6340.
    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
    Thanks in advance for your involvement,
    Ric Foster
    Public Lands Department Manager
