I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the Bureau of Land Management. For the first time, the BLM will be taking public comment in regards to its off-road vehicle management plan. This is an incredible opportunity for the public to express their opinion on how off-road vehicles should be managed on public lands.
I hope that this listening session will serve as a forum in which to discuss the very important issue of how we can better protect our lands from off road vehicle abuse. (Not all off-road vehicle users are irresponsible, but the ones who are cause significant ecological damage.) I would encourage everyone to attend. The meeting will be on Wednesday Aug. 9, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Salt Lake BLM Field Office at 2370 S. 2300 West.
