Mesa County officials will help residents comment on travel portion of BLM's Proposed Resource Management Plan

Community members who need assistance navigating or providing specific comments on the Travel Management Plan part of the Bureau of Land Management's Proposed Resource Management Plan should contact Mesa County.

County officials in Planning and Public Works will be available on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons to meet with community members. For an appointment, call Pam Hawkins at 244-1765.

Mesa County is a cooperating agency. As such, the local government continues to provide input to the BLM on the plan. As elected officials, Mesa County Commissioners feel it's important to listen to their constituents on matters of community interest.
The BLM published its Proposed Resource Management Plan late last week. Public comments will be accepted for 30 days.

This summer, the BLM will put a final RMP into place through a Record of Decision. At that time, the Travel Management Plan, which is part of the Resource Management Plan, will be open to appeal by the public, for 30 days.

Community members with specific route concerns in the Travel Management Plan are welcome to submit comments to Mesa County about that now, however.

On its website, Mesa County is hosting videos designed to help residents navigate the Proposed Resource Management Plan. Find those here. Go directly to the proposed plan here.

For more information, please call 244-1765 to make an appointment with a county official who can act as a guide.
