GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Mesa County commissioners and the Bureau of Land Management are in a stalemate over what to do with 393 routes of public land.

The two parties met with a governor’s representative to try to come to a compromise regarding the BLM’s Resource Management Plan, which could close up to 2,000 miles of public lands.

The BLM wants to close the routes because of environmental issues.

According to KJCT-TV (http://tinyurl.com/o2xqj5z ), Mesa County says the closures will hurt the economy because the routes provide access to recreation areas.
