Public Input Sought on Goldfield Rec Area


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public input on a proposed recreation area in Apache Junction. The proposed development, known as the Goldfield Recreation Area, would span over 1,098 acres and provide opportunities for off-highway vehicle driving, horseback riding, camping, and hiking.

According to Phoenix District Manager Leon Thomas, the BLM wants to enhance recreation opportunities on public lands near Apache Junction and is looking for feedback from the community. "We are eager to hear from residents about how we can make the most of this beautiful land," he said.

Residents can provide input in-person at a meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Apache Junction Elks Lodge or virtually on Thursday, Feb. 23, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Microsoft Teams. During the meetings, attendees will hear about the proposal, have a chance to speak with a specialist, and provide feedback.

For those unable to attend the meetings, written input can be submitted via email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
