Boulder, Colo. (October 23, 2009) – The Boulder Ranger District of the Roosevelt National Forest invites the public to an open house presenting the district’s Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) on November 4 from 4:00 to 7 p.m. The open house will be held at the district office located at 2140 Yarmouth Avenue in Boulder.
The public is invited to share concerns and identify any inaccuracies on this map. The map identifies all routes open to motorized travel on the Boulder Ranger District, but does not make any new decisions regarding travel management.
The draft map was created using data and field information from the U.S. Forest Service and the 1997 Forest Plan Revision. Public input, along with input from Boulder and Gilpin Counties, will be the last step before the map is finalized.
Map updates are required annually and available to the public free from U.S. Forest Service offices. Maps will also be available online at www.fs.fed.us/r2/arnf/recreation/travel_mgmt/mvum/index.shtml when finalized. The MVUM is part of a national effort, the 2005 Travel Management Rule, to address conflicts and confusion with motorized travel on forests and grasslands.
Editor’s Please Note: Additional information about Motor Vehicle Use maps, including Q&As, is available online at www.fs.fed.us/r2/arnf/recreation/travel_mgmt/mvum/index.shtml. Information specific to the Boulder Ranger District will be posted by December 31, 2009. National travel management information, including the Travel Management Rule, is also available at ww.fs.fed.us/recreation/programs/ohv/index.shtml.
