SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The 15-member Northwest RAC advises the Secretary of the Interior, through the BLM, on a variety of planning and management issues associated with public land management in northwest Colorado, which includes the WRFO, Little Snake Field Office, Grand Junction Field Office, Colorado River Valley Field Office and Kremmling Field Office. The Northwest RAC has formed a 12-member Travel Management Subgroup to assist with the WRFO's Travel and Transportation Management Resource Management Plan (RMP) Amendment. The purpose of the meetings is to discuss the RMP Amendment's preliminary alternatives. At the first meeting (August 23, 2016), the focus of the discussion will be to explain the alternatives and the rationale behind them to the Subgroup. At the second meeting (September 14, 2016), the discussion will focus on whether the BLM has developed an adequate range of alternatives and if those alternatives address the planning issues. The Subgroup provides recommendations to the RAC but does not directly advise the BLM. The public may make oral comments to the Subgroup or submit written comments for the Subgroup's consideration. Summary minutes for the Northwest RAC's WRFO Travel Management Subgroup meetings will be maintained in the WRFO and will be available for public inspection and reproduction during regular business hours within thirty (30) days following the meeting.
