  1. On Feb. 11, the California state director of the federal Bureau of Land Management signed the Record of Decision for the Clear Creek Management Area. Though the plan becomes effective immediately, the appeal period began simultaneously. The AMA supports H.R. 1776, the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act. To file an appeal of the Clear Creek ROD follow this link: Appeal the ROD To send a prewritten letter to your representative asking them to support H.R. 1776, follow this link: Take Action Based on the ROD publication date and federal rules, the deadline for appeal is March 14. To appeal the ROD now, follow this link: Appeal the Clear Creek ROD. The appeal must be filed with the Hollister Field Manager at Hollister Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, 20 Hamilton Court, Hollister, CA 95023. For further information, contact Mr. Sky Murphy, Planning & Environmental Coordinator, by telephone 831-630-5039 or email smurphy@blm.gov. The CCMA’s ROD includes several decisions that may be appealed. Under the decision signed by the BLM, only vehicles licensed for highway use may obtain permits to enter the Serpentine area, and the BLM retains the right to limit the number of annual visitor-use days "to reduce human health risks associated with exposure to naturally occurring asbestos." Currently, the BLM is limiting vehicle touring to five days a year and pedestrian activity to 12 days a year. The BLM says it may "reassess its decisions on access and vehicle travel in the Serpentine Area of Critical Environmental Concern if significant new information becomes available on human health risks from exposure to airborne asbestos fibers." The American Motorcyclist Association supports H.R. 1776, the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act, introduced by U.S. Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.) in May 2013. The bill would reopen the Clear Creek Management Area for recreational use and designate about 21,000 acres of BLM land adjacent to Clear Creek as the Joaquin Rocks Wilderness. The effect of this bill’s passage would be a significant boost for the economies of local communities and for off-highway vehicle riders across the West. Please contact your representative right away and urge him or her to support H.R. 1776. Send a prewritten letter by following this link: Take Action, filling out the form at the bottom of the page and clicking the red "submit" button. Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA to help us protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling, and your support will help the AMA fight for your rights – on the road, trail, racetrack, and in the halls of government. To join, go to AmericanMotorcyclist.com/membership/join. If you do send comments to the BLM, please email a copy of your comments to the AMA at grassroots@ama-cycle.org. Thank you.

  4. If you made comments/protests regarding the CCMA FEIS / RMP and they were returned to you, please see the message below; BLM to Accept Returned Clear Creek Protest Letters The Bureau of Land Management will accept returned protest letters on the Clear Creek Management Area Proposed Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) mailed to an incorrect address until June 14. The mailing address for filing public protests listed on the BLM postcard and website for the PRMP/FEIS was incorrect. The correct address was shown on the Dear Reader Letter inside the PRMP/FEIS and on the official Federal Register Notice. If you submitted a protest during the protest period using the incorrect address provided on the BLM postcard and/or website, you may resubmit your protest package with proof of the original postmarked envelope to one of the following addresses: Regular Mail: Director (210) Attention: Brenda Hudgens-Williams P.O. Box 71383 Washington, D.C. 20024-1383 Overnight Mail (non-USPS delivery service): Director (210) Attention: Brenda Hudgens-Williams 20 M St SE, Room 2134LM Washington, D.C. 20003 All resubmitted protests should be postmarked no later than June 14, 2013, to be considered. Please note that this is not an extension of the original protest period. New protests or protests without proof of original submission by the protest end date of May 6, 2013, will not be considered. More information about the public protest period and resolution process is available at the BLM Resource Management Plan Protest Resolution informational web page http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/hollister/clear_creek_management_area/CCMA_RMP.html Following the public protest period, BLM must resolve protests before approving any changes to the CCMA's land use decisions. The final Record of Decision for the PRMP/FEIS will replace the current temporary closure order for the Serpentine Area of Critical Environmental Concern. BLM’s practice is to make protest letters, including names and home addresses of respondents, available for public review and disclosure subject to the Freedom of Information Act. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your protest, be advised that your entire protest letter—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you may request BLM withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. All submissions from organizations and businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations and businesses, will be available for public inspection in their entirety. Copies of the PRMP/FEIS have been sent to affected federal, state, and local government agencies and to interested parties. Copies of the PRMP/FEIS are available for public inspection at the BLM Hollister Field Office, 20 Hamilton Court, Hollister, CA 95023 Monday through Friday (except holidays) from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hard copies and CDs are also available by request at this location as well. The Environmental Protection Agency has been a cooperating agency in this effort because of concerns expressed by EPA and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control regarding the potential for human health risks from exposure to naturally occurring asbestos in the area. The Clear Creek Management Area RMP/EIS will fulfill the needs and obligations set forth by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act and BLM management policies. For more information, contact Brenda Hudgens-Williams at (202) 912-7212. -- David Christy BLM Central California Public Affairs 5152 Hillsdale Circle El Dorado Hills, CA 95762
