MEEKER, Colo. – The Bureau of Land Management is hosting public site tours in September to four areas in western Colorado the White River Field Office is proposing as “OHV Open Areas.”
The field office recently released preliminary travel area alternatives for public review, and is using the site tours to hear from the public on the options for opening or closing specific areas to motorized and mechanized vehicles.
“These site tours will give us an opportunity to brainstorm with the public and hear their ideas and concerns,” said White River Field Manager Kent Walter.
The first tour will be Sept. 7 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the LO7 Hill area near Meeker. The other three tours will be Sept. 8 near Rangely: the North Dinosaur area from 9-10:30 a.m.; the North Rangely area from 11 a.m. to noon; and the Rangely Rock Crawling Park from 1-2:30 p.m.
Specific meeting locations for each tour are available here or by calling the field office at 970 878-3800.
The preliminary alternatives detailing all proposed area designations are on-line here.Source http://www.nbc11news.com/content/news/391090091.html
