To better prepare for developing the Central Yukon Resource Management Plan (RMP), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will host a series of public meetings from mid-January through mid-March 2017 to gather vital public input from the many users of public lands on the Preliminary Range of Alternative concepts.

The BLM will host meetings in 11 communities in the planning area and two additional meetings in Anchorage and Fairbanks. Staff from the Fairbanks District Office will engage communities in preparing a range of alternatives for the Draft RMP. A primary goal of community outreach is to ensure affected communities have a continued voice in the planning process.
