The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has scheduled public involvement meetings in Canon City and Salida to start a planning effort for future management of Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) travel on public lands within a part of the Royal Gorge Field Office.

The Plan, entitled the Arkansas River Travel Management Plan, will focus specifically on public lands located within a 75 mile-long section of the Arkansas River corridor beginning west of Canon City to Centerville, about 15 miles north of Salida. The planning area includes portions of Fremont, Chaffee, and Custer Counties.

The Plan will address changing the OHV travel regulations for the use of motor vehicles on public lands within the planning area. The regulations currently limit motorized travel to "existing" roads and trails. The BLM proposes changing the OHV travel regulations to limit motorized travel to "designated" roads and trails.

The purpose of the meetings is to provide the public the opportunity to participate in the planning process by identifying the issues and concerns that should be addressed in the Plan. Two public meetings are scheduled. The first meeting will be held in Canon City on Tuesday, October 5th, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the new Canon City Administration Building, located at 128 Main Street (enter from the lower level, off Royal Gorge Boulevard.) The second meeting will be held in Salida on Wednesday, October 6th, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Salida Senior Citizens Center, located at 305 F Street.

Maps of the existing roads and trails and specific information about the natural resources and current uses in the planning area will be presented at both meetings. Explanations of the environmental assessment process used for preparing the travel management plan and information on how to stay informed and involved throughout the process, will also be presented. All persons who wish to participate in determining how travel uses should be managed on the public lands are encouraged to attend.

Additional information may be obtained by contacting: Dave Walker, Transportation Planner, Royal Gorge Field Office, 3170 Main, Canon City, CO 81212 (719)269-8545.
