SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A Notice of Intent To Prepare a RAMP, a CTTM Plan for the Las Vegas Field Office, Nevada and Associated EIS was published in the Federal Register (76 FR 5199) on Friday, January 28, 2011. The RAMP/CTTM Plan was intended to provide more specific management direction for those activities in the planning area based on the current Las Vegas and Pahrump Resource Management Plan (RMP). However, because the RMP is currently under revision and any changes to the plan may significantly change the RAMP/CTTM Plan under development, it was decided to delay the RAMP/CTTM PLAN until the Record of Decision for the RMP revision was complete. Due to a delay in the anticipated completion of the RMP revision, funding for RAMP/CTTM Plan will expire. As such, the BLM has decided that the RAMP/CTTM EIS process should be terminated.

Prior to the decision to terminate the process, public scoping meetings were held on March 1, 2, 3, 9, and 10, 2011, in Searchlight, Mesquite, Las Vegas, Goodsprings, and Overton respectively. Work also ensued on a draft EIS, but the draft EIS was neither completed nor released.
