The Bureau of Land Management's Uncompahgre Field Office is seeking public comments on 29 Special Recreation Permit applications, including four new applications and 25 applications for renewals.
The BLM issues commercial SRPs to provide recreation businesses the opportunity to operate on BLM public lands, to provide the public the opportunity to use a guided service for recreation activities, to implement recreation management decisions and to ensure a fair return to the public for commercial use of public lands.
The four new SRP applicants are:
• Weimer Hunting Camp (Jody Weimer) for big game and lion hunting in GMUs 61, 62, and 70.
• Crested Butte Angler (Jason White) for walk/wade and float fishing on the Gunnison River from Forks to Austin.
• Centennial Canoe (Marty Genereux) SRP for canoeing on the Gunnison River from Forks to Delta.
• Prescott College (Rachel Peters) for canoeing on the San Miguel and Dolores Rivers.
The BLM is also considering 25 renewal applications, many involving operators providing services in the Gunnison Gorge NCA and on the Gunnison River.
Details about SRP applications are available for review in the Montrose Public Lands Center located at 2505 S. Townsend Avenue in Montrose or online at www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/ufo.html.
The BLM is soliciting comments on such issues as resource concerns, compliance history, health and safety, conflicts and diversity of services. These comments will help the BLM determine whether the proposed SRPs support the BLM's objectives in recreation management and resource protection.
