Construction of the facility is being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The site would include an office, support buildings and temporary housing for BLM staff working in the Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails NCA and other nearby public lands. The facility would provide space for visitor services including outdoor displays and information, as well as inside space for volunteers to provide public information and sales of maps. The site could also be used to stage one or more BLM initial attack wildland fire engines during periods of high fire danger.
The proposal and associated impacts are described and analyzed in the Black Rock National Conservation Area Facility Preliminary EA. The document may be reviewed online at www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/wfo.html.
