BLM Announces Wood River Valley Travel Management Plan Open House

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Shoshone Field Office has announced an open house on July 27 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at the Community Campus (1050 Fox Acres Rd., Room 301 & 302) in Hailey to discuss the Travel Management Plan (TMP) process for the Wood River Valley. BLM states that the planning area includes public lands north of Highway 20, south of the Lake Creek Trailhead, west of Willow Creek and east of the Little Wood River.

The TMP is a comprehensive approach to travel and transportation planning for both motorized and non-motorized access serving a wide variety of uses. The Wood River Valley TMP will address both summer and winter travel.

It is important for OHV enthusiasts to stay involved in the public lands management planning process by attending public meetings! We need to ensure that we have a seat at the table when agencies that administer public lands discuss TMPs.

Comments

 BLM states that comments are welcome throughout the planning process, but that it is most helpful to submit comments by September 29, 2017. BLM uses comments to help refine alternatives and to address issues and concerns. Comments may be submitted to: blm_id_wrvtmp@blm.gov; 208-732-7317 (fax); or 400 West F Street, Shoshone, ID 83352.
