CPW OHV GRANTS TO IMPLEMENT BLM RMP’S
PETITION TO HAVE THE COLORADO PARKS AND WILDLIFE (CPW) CEASE AWARDING OHV PERMIT GRANTS TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (BLM/USFS) THAT ALLOW FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF TRAVEL MANAGEMENT PLAN ROUTE CLOSURES AND THE DECOMMISSIONING OF ROUTES THAT MEET THE DEFINITION OF A PUBLIC HIGHWAY BASED ON STATE LAW. 12,000 OF THESE TYPES OF ROUTE CLOSURES ARE UNDER LITIGATION IN UTAH. THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE CLOSED PUBLIC LAND ROUTES MEET THE DEFINITION OF A PUBLIC HIGHWAY BASED ON STATE LAWS (CRS 43-2-201, CRS 29-20-104, CRS 43-1-202 AND FEDERAL LAW RS 2477.
This is in response to current Kremmling, CRV, and Grand Junction BLM RMPS in Colorado that are closing at least 4,000 miles of routes cumulatively.
I, Petitioner (signed below), agree with the above statements and feel the CPW should cease using motorize users ATV permit fees for these types of grants immediately.
