Arizona: Pro-Gun Input Needed as BLM Prepares Recreation Plan for Table Mesa Area!

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is preparing a recreation plan for the Table Mesa area, north of Phoenix.  This is a very poplar recreation area, especially for target shooting.  The BLM wants to know what types of recreation and road access are important to people who recreate in this area.  They want to hear from hunters and shooters about what areas are important to them for target shooting. 

It is critical that recreational shooters who use the area participate in this process in order to counter the radical environmental and anti-gun forces who want to end all recreational shooting in Arizona.  There is little doubt that they will be active in this public input process.  The agency will be holding two public meetings and it is critical that hunters and shooters who use this area attend one of the meetings. 

Tuesday, November 18, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Deer Valley Senior Center, 2001 West Wahalla Lane, Phoenix

Thursday, November 20, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Anthem Community Center, 41130 N. Freedom Way, Anthem

Following the public meetings, the BLM will prepare a Recreation Activity Plan/Travel Management Plan and release it for public comment. Should you have questions about the planning process, you may contact Tom Bickauskas, Project Manager, at 623-580-5502.
