MONTICELLO — The Bureau of Land Management-Utah Monticello Field Office is seeking public comment on an amended business plan for the San Juan River. The addendum proposes moving the San Juan River noncommercial boating permit lottery and reservation system online to improve customer service and permitting efficiency. Each year, more than 11,000 visitors take river trips in San Juan County, where BLM management of public lands and waters supports jobs and boosts the local economy.
Since approval of the initial business plan in November 2013, the BLM has determined that the online system is the best service for San Juan River reservations. The addendum in the amended business plan for the San Juan River details and analyzes the proposed move to Recreation.gov and associated changes to business rules, including fee payment timelines, refund policy and fee collection.
An electronic copy of the amended business plan for the San Juan River is available for public review and comment on the Monticello Field Office website. Copies can also be viewed at the BLM Monticello Field Office, 365 N. Main Street, Monticello, Utah.
Written comments will be accepted by letter or email through Sept. 29. Please reference “Amended San Juan Business Plan” when submitting comments. Please limit comments to the addendum (section J), as the rest of the business plan was recently approved following a public comment period. Written comments may be mailed or emailed using the following addresses:
Bureau of Land Management
Monticello Field Office
Attn: Amended San Juan Business Plan
P.O. Box 7
