Public invited to open houses for development of

Kingman Travel Management Plan

 

KINGMAN, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management, Kingman Field Office – invites the public’s participation in the development of the KFO Travel Management Plan and Environmental Assessment.

Travel management is an approach to establishing networks of roads for travel and transportation including areas for both motorized and non-motorized uses.  Travel management planning is necessary for designating and providing appropriate access to and across public lands for a variety of uses.

This Travel Management Plan and Environmental Assessment includes Bagdad, Black Mountains, Cerbat Mountains, Crozier, Goodwin Mesa, Hualapai Mountains, Music Mountains and Poachies. It will also include the White Hills Travel Management Areas an encompasses Kingman, Bullhead City, Golden Valley, Chloride, Wikieup, Bagdad, Meadview, Dolan Springs, White Hills, and Wayside in Mohave, Yavapai and La Paz counties.

During the three open house-style meetings, maps of the current and potential travel network will be available for review and BLM staff will be available to answer questions and receive comments.

 

The open houses will be held Oct. 10-12, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Owens School, Hualapai Elementary School and Mohave High School, respectively.
