Farmington Off Road Meeting

Just got off the phone with Bill from BLM and he informed me of huge meeting they plan to have and will also promote their National Public Lands Day event for Sept 24th.

Dear Interested Party:

In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as
amended, and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) of 1976, as
amended, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Farmington Field Office (FFO),
Farmington, New Mexico intends to prepare a Resource Management Plan
Amendment (RMPA) to the 2003 Farmington RMP and an associated recreation
and travel management plan. The Environmental Assessment (EA) for this
planning effort will focus on issues related to recreation, travel
management, and land tenure within the Glade Run Recreation Area (the
Glade).

The planning area encompasses 17,935 acres of public land, is approximately
21,544 acres in total size, and is located in San Juan County, New Mexico
(see enclosure).

New forms of motorized vehicles and technology, population growth,
increasing user conflicts, etc., have out-paced guidance and decisions made
in the current recreation and travel management plan for the Glade that was
approved in 1996. To address these changes, the RMPA/EA will consider
proposals to amend the RMP to make changes in off-highway vehicle area
designations (OHV). OHV area designations are land use allocations that
classify areas of public lands as open, limited, or closed to motorized
travel (43 CFR 8342). In addition, this planning effort will develop
management alternatives that include specific activity planning targeted at
identifying a travel and transportation network of routes for specified
uses within the planning area.

The planning effort will also include an application by the City of
Farmington to acquire a Recreation and Public Purposes lease on
approximately 980 acres within the planning area.

The BLM will hold a public scoping meeting August 25th, 2011, at San Juan
College Henderson Fine Arts building, rooms 9010/9012. The public meeting
will be from 4:30 PM until 7:30 PM with a short presentation at 5:30 PM.
The goal of the meeting is to provide information on the planning process
and get your help in determining relevant issues that will influence and
guide the planning process.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 505-599-6389 or
Janelle Alleman, Outdoor Recreation Planner at 505-599-8944. You may also
submit comments on issues and planning criteria related to the Farmington
Glade Run Recreation Area RMPA/EA by mail at the above address, by FAX to
505-599-8999 Attn: Outdoor Recreation Planner, or by e-mail to
NM_FFO_Comments@blm.gov.

Sincerely,

Gary Torres
Field Manager
