BLM to hold hearings on travel management plan
KINGMAN – The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is holding public hearings to review the Kingman Field Office travel management plan and environmental assessment.
The travel management plan establishes a network of roads for travel and transportation including areas for both motorized and non-motorized uses. It’s necessary for designating and providing appropriate access to public lands for a variety of uses.
The area includes Bagdad, Black Mountains, Cerbat Mountains, Crozier, Goodwin Mesa, Hualapai Mountains, Music Mountains and Poachies. It also includes the White Hills Travel Management area encompassing Kingman, Bullhead City, Golden Valley, Chloride, Wikieup, Bagdad, Meadview, Dolan Springs and White Hills.
During three open houses meetings, maps of the proposed travel network and others alternatives will be available for review, with BLM staff on hand to answer questions.
Open houses are scheduled 5-8 p.m. Aug. 21 at Hualapai Elementary School, 350 Eastern Ave., Kingman; 4-7 p.m. Aug. 22 at Suddenlink Community Center, 2380 Suddenlink Way, Bullhead City; and 4-6 p.m. Aug. 23 at Owens School, 14109 Chicken Springs Road, Wikieup.
The BLM encourages the public to use this scoping period to identify issues that influence the environmental analyses and provide comments prior to issuing decisions. The public comment period runs from Aug. 20 to Sept. 18.
