BlueRibbon-Coalition-Logo-9-28-12Editor’s Note: The BlueRibbon Coalition sent over this notice that the BLM is seeking input on the Nine Mile Canyon SRMA in Utah. See the detailed info below.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Price Field Office is seeking public input on a range of preliminary alternatives to be considered in the Nine Mile Canyon Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) Environmental Assessment. The Nine Mile Canyon SRMA, managed by the Price and Vernal Field Offices, is internationally significant for its concentration of archaeological sites and extensive rock art.

Preliminary alternatives to be analyzed include a range of options from leaving current management in place to enhancing and adding new facilities, campgrounds and signs for education and interpretation.

The BLM is asking for feedback on the proposed alternatives to assure that all of the issues and concerns raised during the scoping period are included in one or more of the alternatives. Feedback will be accepted through April 29, 2016. The BLM will consider all input in developing a draft EA that will be available for public review and comment.

Information about the project, preliminary alternatives and maps can be accessed using the ePlanning website at:
