Comment Periods
There are two Environmental Assessments (EA) put forward for comments, as well as one Request for Scoping.  The EAs analyze the potential indirect impacts of leasing seven parcels in the Fillmore Field Office and 26 parcels in the Salt Lake Field Office in the September 2018 Utah Lease Sale.  The Utah State Office of the BLM is also requesting scoping comments on 76 parcels in the Price Field Office, as well as comments on issuing or lifting the suspensions on 18 parcels in the Price and Richfield Field Offices.  Those leases were offered/issued prior to the completion of the 2008 Resource Management Plans, and it was determined after offering/issuing them, that additional stipulations may need to be added to the parcels to protect resources.  The list of parcels includes the new stipulations that could be added, and the NEPA analysis will determine if those stipulations will adequately protect resources, or if the leases should be withdrawn.

The Comment/Scoping Period will from March 30, 2018 until April 16, 2018.
