    ARIZONA - BLM Announces Meetings On Black Canyon Corridor Travel Management Plan
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The BLM is holding public meetings for the Black Canyon Corridor Travel Management Plan and Environmental Assessment (TMP/EA). This is an area that receives a lot of OHV use.
    The area includes: Upper Agua Fria River, Bumble Bee and Lower Black Canyon Trail areas which encompasses the communities of Black Canyon City, Mayer, New River and Dewey-Humboldt in Yavapai and Maricopa counties, Arizona.
    Please review the maps that are available online and/or attend the meetings. This is a very important planning meeting that needs your input. We need to be involved in the planning process so that our riding areas are part of the public input.
    These meetings will give you the chance to see what is available and comment on the roads and trails that are the most important to you in this area.
    Even if you do not attend the meetings, you should check the website to review documents and maps. Black Canyon Corridor TMP Website.
    Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

    NOTICE OF PUBLIC SCOPING
    BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT
    Phoenix District Hassayampa Field Office
    21605 North 7th Avenue
    Phoenix, Arizona 85027
    www.blm.gov/az/
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Hassayampa Field Office invites your participation in the development of the Black Canyon Corridor Travel Management Plan and Environmental Assessment (TMP/EA).
    This TMP/EA includes the Upper Agua Fria River, Bumble Bee and Lower Black Canyon Trail travel management areas and encompasses the communities of Black Canyon City, Mayer, New River and Dewey-Humboldt in Yavapai and Maricopa counties, Arizona (see website for Planning Area map). The Black Canyon National Recreation Trail (BCNR T) is central to this area.
    Travel management is a comprehensive approach to the administration of travel and transportation networks of roads, primitive routes, trails, and areas for both motorized and non-motorized uses.
    Travel management planning includes the inventory and mapping, route designations, and other measures necessary for providing access to and across public lands for a variety of uses. This notification is being provided to BLM right-of-way holders, recreational users, grazing allotment permittees, mining claim holders, and anyone else who has expressed an interest in this project in the past.
    The upcoming TMP/EA will analyze the direct, indirect and cumulative effects from the BLM's designation of an approved travel network. At this early stage during public scoping, public participation will assist the BLM in the development of the TMP/EA. Through this process, the BLM will comply with the obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act and National Historic Preservation Act. The BLM has scheduled the following open houses:
    Monday May 15, 2017 from 6 - 8 pm at the Deer Valley Community Center, 2001 W. Wahalla Lane Phoenix, Arizona 85027,
    Tuesday May 16, 2017 from 6-8 pm at the Mayer High School (old library), 17300 E. Mule Deer Drive, Spring Valley, Arizona 86333.
    During these open house-style meetings, BLM staff will be available and maps of the travel network inventory will be available for review. There will be tables with personnel with maps to discuss the project and answer your questions.
    The BLM had initiated public scoping in 2014 but was unable to move forward with the planning effort. If you participated in 2014, we encourage you to continue to participate with this newest effort. Topics to be thinking about to better prepare for these meetings include:

    • How do I use this area and what route access do I need to conduct my business or favorite recreational activity?
    • What facilities and/or amenities would you suggest to make your use more enjoyable, and accommodate current use and future growth in the area such as trailheads, staging areas, information kiosks, etc., and where would they be located?
    • If you're a recreational user of the BCNRT, what suggestions do you have in terms of connectivity to communities, loop opportunities, user conflict mitigation, etc.?
    • Are there specific routes you would like to be designated as closed due to user conflicts, route proliferation, etc.?

    This 30-day public scoping period is from May 8 until June 6, 2017.
    Information on this project will be available at the following website: Black Canyon Corridor. Comments on the proposed project can be submitted the following ways:
    Electronically by emailing them to: blkcanyon@blm.gov
    You may mail your comments to: BLM Hassayampa Field Office, ATTN: Tammy Pike, 21605 North 7th Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona 85027.
    You may fax your comments to: Tammy Pike at 623-580-5580.
    Privacy Notice: Before including your address, phone number, email address, or any other personal identifying information in your comments, be advised that your entire comment(s), including personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. While individuals may request that the BLM withhold personal identifying information from public view, the BLM cannot guarantee it will be able to do so.
    If you wish to withhold your personal information, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment(s). We will make all submissions from organizations and businesses available for public disclosure in their entirety.
    The BLM anticipates that the TMP/EA will be available for public review in early 2018. Note: if you wish to remain on the project mailing list and be notified of the documents availability, please send us a reply to blkcanyon@blm.gov.
    If you have questions, please contact Tammy Pike at 623-580-5586 or blkcanyon@blm.gov.

    Secretary Zinke Requests Comments on National Monument Designations Made Since 1996

    President Trump has directed Secretary Zinke (Executive Order 13792) to conduct a thorough review of certain National Monument designations made under the Antiquities Act of 1906 since January 1, 1996 where the designation is in excess of 100,000 acres or where the Secretary determines that the designation or expansion was made without adequate public outreach and coordination with relevant stakeholders.

    Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has been spending four days in Utah visiting the Bears Ears National Monument and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument as well meeting with local and state government officials and local citizens to receive comments about the impact those monument designations have had on the state.

    The Department of the Interior has announced that the agency is accepting public comments on monument designations under the Antiquities Act. Comments on the Bears Ears National Monument must be submitted by May 26, 2017. Comments on all other designations under review must be submitted by July 10, 2017.

    If you would like to submit comments on the Bears Ears National Monument or one of the other National Monuments under review, please go to https://www.regulations.gov/ and enter “DOI-2017-0002” in the Search bar.

    NATIONAL - DOI Announces Formal Public Comment Period for Antiquities Act Monuments
    Releases List of Monuments Under Review

    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The Department of the Interior has announced the first ever formal public comment period for members of the public to officially weigh in on monument designations under the Antiquities Act of 1906, and the Department released a list of monuments under review under the President's Executive Order 13792, issued April 26, 2017. A public comment period is not required for monument designations under the Antiquities Act; however, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and President Trump both strongly believe that local input is a critical component of federal land management.
    Comments may be submitted online after May 12 at http://www.regulations.gov by entering "DOI-2017-0002" in the Search bar and clicking "Search," or by mail to Monument Review, MS-1530, U.S. Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20240.
    The Department published a notice in the Federal Register officially opening the public comment period on May 11, 2017. Written comments relating to the Bears Ears National Monument must be submitted within 15 days of publication of that notice. Written comments relating to all other designations subject to Executive Order 13792 must be submitted within 60 days of that date.
    For a complete list of National Monuments being reviewed and to read the Department of the Interior press release go here. To read the Federal Register Notice go here.

    Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

    IDAHO - BLM to Host Open House for Designating Routes and Trails in Sand Creek Desert & St. Anthony Sand Dunes
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    On May 31, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is inviting the public to provide local input and expertise on designating routes and trails on public lands located within the Sand Creek Desert and St. Anthony Sand Dunes. The open house will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the Fremont County Annex Building located at 125 N. Bridge Street in St. Anthony, Idaho.
    At the meeting, the public will be able to view a variety of maps depicting current trails on the ground. Upper Snake Field Office staff will be on hand to answer any questions or concerns and explain the travel management planning process in detail. The BLM is holding the meeting early in the summer to allow interested individuals and groups the opportunity to get outside and review the inventory the BLM has on record.
    BRC believes it is important for users to encourage the BLM to recognize and address the need for large "Open" designations where appropriate such as on dune structures. In addition, the agency should look for opportunities to designate smaller open "play areas" where users can practice riding skills or recreate with family and friends.
    The Sand Creek Desert and St. Anthony Sand Dunes area is popular with a variety of recreational users and is one of four areas the field office is focusing on during travel management planning. For more information, contact Jason Byrd, jbyrd@blm.gov or 208-524-7500.

    NATIONAL ACTION ALERT - RARE OPPORTUNITY FOR OFF ROADERS! URGENT!
    This is all hands on deck. Tell Interior Department your views on National Monuments.
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    Last week we told you that the Department of the Interior (DOI) is taking public comments concerning its review of Antiquities Act National Monuments. A list of monuments under review can be found here.
    A review of National Monuments has been a priority of this organization for years. This time we may have an unprecedented opportunity to provide constructive input early in the process. We must take advantage of the opportunity to seek the changes we want. Everyone who has an issue with National Monuments needs to weigh in on this. This action requires no money and no special expertise - just a couple of minutes of your time.
    You can bet that environmental and preservationists groups are weighing in. We must each answer this call. Please visit the link above without delay and tell the DOI what you think. Then please get ten of your friends to do the same.
    Comments may be submitted online at https://www.regulations.gov/document...2017-0002-0001 or by mail to Monument Review, MS-1530, U.S. Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20240.

    A list of suggested talking points is listed below, but remember the more personal your comments the better.
    Thank you.
    Martin Hackworth
    Executive Director
    Sharetrails.org/BlueRibbon Coalition

    SUGGESTED TALKING POINTS

    • Legislation is always preferable to unilateral Executive action. We support the Utah Public Lands Initiative as the proper way of balancing preservation and multiple use of these lands.
    • We support the concerns and comments of a truly diverse range of stakeholders, including affected counties, property owners, businesses, permit holder, residents and elected officials.
    • The Monument should be reduced in size to the smallest acreage necessary to protect the true "objects" of the Monument.
    • The Proclamation should be amended to recognize outdoor recreation, including motorized trail riding and historic permitted OHV events, as allowed uses or purposes of the Monument.
    • Specific, established recreation corridors should be specifically identified for continuing use, including motorized recreation. If you know specific routes or have personal experiences to relate you should do so.
    • Direction should be provided instructing that for any routes closed to motorized travel, the Secretary will determine whether an interim restriction with subsequent restoration of access is appropriate, and if not, the proper relocation or establishment of comparable additional motorized access that can be implemented to offset the closure.
    • A motorized recreation representative should be a required member of any advisory council.
    Sharetrails.Org/BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) is a national non-profit organization that champions responsible recreation and encourages a strong conservation ethic and individual stewardship, while providing leadership in efforts to keep outdoor recreation alive and well -- all sports; all trails.
