Feb. 2009 BRC/Dr. Ilgren Letter to BLM on CCMA Closure

As the Clear Creek saga continues, The General wanted to give you an update
on the status of that issue. On December 15, 2008, Don Amador wrote an open letter
to the OHV community regarding what is being done to get the Clear Creek Management Area reopened for use by the public.

As Don said in the letter, the BRC Legal Defense Fund has spent unprecedented amounts of monies on expert analysis of the EPA report and other reports in attempting the difficult task of getting the BLM to reconsider some of its preliminary positions upon which the closure was based.

Based on feedback from OHVers who attended a January 2009 BLM Resource Advisory Council meeting where BLM officials basically stated that they had never received ANY substantive health related information to date, BRC commissioned Dr. Ilgren to once again restate already submitted health information as well as offering new information
before the DEIS is published.

The General thanks all those riders who are continuing to stay engaged in the battle to reopen CCMA.
