Comment Period on Bangs Canyon Extended
The BLM has extended the comment period for the Bangs Canyon Proposed Trails EA another 30 days. The Bangs Canyon complex and especially the Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) is an important area and has been the subject of controversy in the past. Extending the comment period is a reflection of the the Grand Junction Field Office of the BLM’s desire to get as much public input from the community as possible. They have requested comments be received by December 22nd, 2012.
