Alternative C: Expand the current closure and/or implement other target shooting restrictions.

The BM will be hosting 2 public meetings that will follow an “open house” format. A public hearing will not be held. A court reporter will be available for individuals to make oral statements to be included in the record. At the open houses, preliminary information and maps about the plan amendment will be available for review.  BLM staff will be present to answer questions.  The open houses will be held in:
