Navy Applies to BLM to Expand Fallon Range Training Complex

BLM Segregates 600,000 Acres While Navy Studies Extension, Expansion

RENO, Nevada – The U.S. Navy has applied to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to continue to use the site of the Fallon Range Training Complex and to expand it to include more than 600,000 acres of additional public land. As a result of the Navy’s withdrawal application, the BLM has segregated the proposed expansion area from appropriation under the public land laws. The two- year segregation is obligatory while the Navy prepares an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on its expansion and extension proposals for the Fallon site about 65 miles east of Reno.

Dissecting a Court Ruling

The news release started with this paragraph.  "A saga over 15 years in the making has ended well for common sense and dune riding access. The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals today rejected appeals from the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), and upheld the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) 2013 Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) management plan. The Plan restored motorized dune vehicle access to most of the ISDRA areas closed on an “interim” basis in a 2001 settlement agreement. After nearly a decade of study and planning, BLM determined these areas were appropriate for dune vehicle riding."

Transformation Team Update - Document Needs a "Recreation" Goal

imageThis Sign Directed OHV Stakeholders to the Transformation Team Public Meeting in Ontario on Aug. 11, 2016

Introduction: I wanted to share my letter/thoughts with OHV stakeholders on the August 2016 Transformation Team Progress Report.  I think it takes steps in the right direction.  However, it needs to more fully incorporate "Recreation" into the soul of the document.  I have included the letter I sent to the Transformation Team today. I  think this report shows a “preservation culture” still exists at DPR.
