The Bureau of Land Management has released a preliminary plan for areas managed by the White River field office, detailing which routes would be open to motorized and mechanized vehicles, and the routes that would be closed to those vehicles. The plan effects 1.5-million acres in northwestern Colorado. Once the plan is formalized next year the BLM will begin detailed, route-by-route evaluations with the goal of authorizing a travel network that will provide good public access plus protect sensitive areas and resources. Before the BLM finalizes the plan for the travel routes, they are offering the public the opportunity to review them. Below you’ll find additional information about how to comment on the BLM plan.

The BLM will host two public open house meetings about these preliminary alternatives from 5-7 p.m. Aug. 30, in Meeker at the Public Library, 490 Main St.; and Aug. 31, in Rangely at the Western Rio Blanco Metropolitan Recreation Center, 611 S. Stanolind Ave.
