DNR seeks comments on proposal for OHV project in northwestern Minnesota

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking public comments until Sept. 8 on a project proposal for approximately 63 miles of all-terrain-vehicle trails in northwestern Minnesota.

The proposed project is in the Con-Con lands of Beltrami, Marshall and Roseau Counties, as identified by the DNR commissioner on Dec. 26, 2002. Trails will utilize existing corridors of disturbance within the Con-Con lands, county and township roads and rights-of-way that are on, adjacent to, or contiguous to post-1986 Con-Con lands.

As part of the Northwest Region Off-Highway Vehicle System Draft Plan, this project proposal will provide a designated trail system and access for all-terrain-vehicle riders on specified state wildlife management areas. This use will be monitored and the trails will be maintained and repaired as needed to ensure sustainable access as part of a designated trail system.

In order to facilitate review by the public, the DNR has made copies of the project proposal available at the Northwest Regional Library 210 North Labree Ave., Thief River Falls; at the DNR Trails and Waterways office at 123 Main Ave. North, Thief River Falls; at the DNR Trails and Waterways office, 6603 Bemidji Ave. North, Bemidji; at the DNR office at the Thief Lake Wildlife Management Area in Middle River; and at the DNR Building Library, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul.

The document is also available on the DNR's Web site at

In addition, citizens may request a copy of the project proposal by calling the DNR Trails and Waterways office in Thief River Falls at (218) 681-0889. Addendums and maps are available for review at the locations above and at the DNR's Web site at

The public review and comment period for the project proposal runs through Sept. 8. Written, signed comments will be accepted until 4 p.m. that day. Comments and letters should be sent to Mary Broten, DNR Trails and Waterways, 123 Main Ave. N., Thief River Falls, MN 56701. Signed letters may be faxed to (218) 681-0948. E-mail comments will not be accepted.
