BLM invites public comment, proposed off-road event near Cedar City

CEDAR CITY – The Bureau of Land Management‘s Cedar City field office is seeking public comment on an environmental assessment analyzing the potential impacts of a proposed competitive off-road event at the Three Peaks Special Recreation Management Area.

The EA evaluates potential site-specific impacts associated with the event proposed by the Southern Nevada Off-Road Enthusiasts. Event authorization would require the temporary closure of 9,098 acres of public lands May 30 and 31 to facilitate spectator and racer safety.

Additional information about the proposed event is included in the EA, which is available for public review and comment until April 11. View a digital copy of the EA here.

Written comments will be accepted by mail or email until April 11. Please note that the most useful comments are those that contain new technical or scientific information relevant to the proposal. Comments should be as specific as possible. Comments which contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response, but may be considered in the BLM’s decision-making process. Please reference “SNORE” when submitting comments.
