View Full Version : Monticello BLM RMP Meeting (Utah) - Arch Canyon & Hotel Rock

01-11-2008, 12:34 AM
I just got back from the planning meeting on this RMP, all I can say is OUCH! This RMP covers all of the BLM land south of Moab, including CM trails Arch Canyon and Hotel Rock, in addition to countless other major trails. I'll have a comprehensive report and comment "talking points" coming out shortly (please be ready to comment then), but I figured I would give you guys a heads up. Overall things are a bit nasty, Arch Canyon is going to be heavily debated, on all but one Alternative (OHV) it is closed, and on ALL it will be limited to 12 people per group (with a permit) :eek:

Stay tuned... We are going to get our Richfield campaign out FIRST, and then the Monticello one, please be ready to comment! After that is a bit of relaxing :beer:

Thanks for your input here! It is way better than just reading through things. SUWA is definitely in hyperdrive, and well funded, with lots of bored lawyers. I can imagine the good-ol-boy conversations over bourbon and Mercedes...

I have to second Bill's post. Thanks to U4WDA and you personally Kurt for keeping us in the loop.

Hopefully San Juan county will help put some muscle behind this as well.

Kurt, thanks a bunch for keeping us in the loop with these issues.

Maybe we can creat a "deadline page" for when we need to get the letters sent out to each area???

The deadlines will be outlined in our press releases on each RMP. FYI, Richfield is 1/24... Monticello is 2/4.

We will have the Richfield release out this coming Wednesday, the Monticello a week later!
