Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking public input on the Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan (ORV) for Lake Meredith National Recreation Area. Open houses will be held in Fritch, Dumas and Amarillo, Texas, on April 20-22, 2010, at the times and places indicated below.

These meetings will offer the public an opportunity to comment on proposed alternatives, which will impact off-road vehicle use at the park for years to come. The Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan will identify potential environmental impacts, issues, concerns and the preliminary range of alternatives. Comments from previous public meetings have been incorporated into three action alternatives, as well as the no-action alternative of continuing current management operations.

Opportunities for public input on the ORV plan will be available at the following times and places:

April 20 in Fritch at the Sanford-Fritch Schools, Business Office, 540 Eagle Boulevard (5:30 pm-7:30 pm)

April 21 in Dumas at the First National Bank, 1201 E. First Street (5:30pm-7:30 pm)

April 22 in Amarillo at the Ambassador Hotel, 3100 I-40 West, Exit 68-B (5:30 pm-7:30 pm)

Representatives of the National Park Service will be available to discuss issues, resource concerns and the planning process. Attendees may submit comments in person or on written forms available at the meetings.

Comments also can be mailed to Cindy Ott-Jones, Superintendent, Lake Meredith National Recreation Area, P.O. Box 1460, Fritch, TX 79036-1460, or hand-delivered to park headquarters at Lake Meredith NRA, 419 E. Broadway, Fritch, TX.

For further information, contact Cindy Ott-Jones, Superintendent, or Arlene Wimer, Resources Manager, at 806-857-3151.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
