Arizona: BLM Needs Your Participation as it Prepares Recreation Plan for Table Mesa Area!

Monday, November 17, 2008

Please Attend a Public Meeting and Speak-Up for Target Shooting!

As we have reported, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is preparing a Recreation Activity Plan/Travel Management Plan for the Table Mesa area, north of Phoenix.  The BLM wants to know what types of recreation and road access are important to people who recreate in this popular area.  
 
It is vital that target shooters and hunters participate in this process to ensure that other recreation interests don't try to force shooters off these public lands. There is little doubt that non-shooters and anti-gun forces will be active in this public input process.  BLM will be holding two public meetings as the first step in developing the recreation plan.  Please 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

We would like to thank those NRA members who answered the call to attend a BLM-hosted clean-up event on Saturday, November 8 in the Table Mesa area.  We, along with BLM, appreciate your contribution to ensure that public lands remain clean and open for use.  NRA encourages any of the volunteers who worked on November 8 to share their thoughts with BLM as to how the area can be kept clean and how to discourage littering and illegal dumping.

Following the public meetings, the BLM will prepare the recreation 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.
