Public Comment Period Now Open (10/15/2019 through 10/28/2019)
Public scoping comments will be accepted electronically via the BLM Land Use Planning and NEPA register (ePlanning) by clicking on the NEPA project links below. Comments received by other methods will not be accepted. All supplemental information, such as references, should be included with your comment submitted through ePlanning, supplemental information can be submitted through a secure file transfer application or external media device. All external media devices are required to be scanned for viruses. If the device is determined to not be safe, then it will be returned to the sender.
Please note that the most useful public scoping comments are substantive comments that do one or more of the following: identify issues relevant to the proposed action, reasonable alternatives, the extent to which those issues and impacts should be analyzed, or new technical or scientific information for the BLM to consider in the environmental analysis to be prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Comments which contain only opinions or preferences, or comments that are essentially identical to other comments will not be specifically addressed in the environmental review process.
Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your public scoping comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personal identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
