GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The Bureau of Land Management will continue sorting through public comment regarding its revised resource management plan.

On Saturday, BLM officials invited the community to a public forum at the Two Rivers Convention Center.

The discussions revolved around how BLM land is used, and how the organization is going to manage roads and trails in the near future.

Right now, authorities have put together four different proposals for roads, but it's hoping to continue to get specific feedback from the community so it can make its final decision.

"We want to hear from the public about what they want to see with the roads and trails, it's a complicated topic and the goal tonight was to really help people learn more information to give us specific topics about what they want to see," BLM spokesperson David Boyd said.

Close to 150 people attended Saturday's meeting.

The BLM will be accepting public feedback until June 24th. You can do that by going online to There is also a link to all four proposals and maps on the site.

We ask that commenters keep it clean, keep it truthful, stay on topic and be responsible. Comments left here do not necessarily represent the viewpoint of KKCO 11News.
