Texas Lake Meredith NRA Seeks Comments on ORV Management Plan DEIS

The National Park Service (NPS) has released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan (Plan), Lake Meredith National Recreation Area (LAMR). The Plan/DEIS evaluates the impacts of four alternatives that address off-road vehicle (ORV) management. It also assesses the impacts that could result from continuing the current management framework in the "no action" alternative. The selected alternative will guide ORV management at LAMR for the next 15 years.

The NPS will accept comments on the DEIS during a 60-days public comment period, which began with publication of the Notice of the Availability of the DEIS on January 25, 2013, and ends March 26, 2013. The NPS will schedule public meetings during the comment period. Dates, time, and locations of these meetings will be announced in press releases, a newsletter, and on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) Web site for the project at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/LAMR

Information is available for public review and comment at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/LAMR Copies of the Plan/DEIS are available in the office of the Superintendent, Lake Meredith National Recreation Area, Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument, 419 E.
