I have to have comments to our sub-group chair by the end of December for the draft of the letter that the entire Rac will submit on the plan. I am leaning towards the OHV proposal in alt. 3. It calls for Virtue and 2-3 other "open" areas, with around 38,000 acres "closed", vs. around 19,000 closed in alt. 2. The closures would be an additional ACEC and all of the "landlocked" parcels of BLM that have no public access due to being surrounded by private ground.
The preferred alternative is alt. 1, with just Virtue "open" and everything else either in "limited" or "closed".
Post up here with anything you want submitted as a comment in what I send to our sub-group chair for inclusion / discussion.
