Acquire Land for Fort Sage and Rice Canyon OHV Areas
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Purchase 109.5 acres of privately owned parcels. The purpose of these purchases is to acquire private lands to sustain and manage current and future OHV use. Once the land is acquired OHV use will be managed under BLM regulations for OHV use. Currently OHV users trespass onto State and private lands to connect to BLM trails. Purchase of these parcels will solve trespass issues and will enhance the OHV area and allow for future development. This project does not include any development or ground disturbing activities. Additional environmental assessments with public scoping would take place prior to any development.
