How to get Involved 
Upcoming Public Engagement Events:
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) invites you to attend a public meeting about the Central Yukon Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement (RMP/EIS). This RMP/EIS will provide future direction for approximately 13 million acres of BLM-managed land in central and northern Alaska, including the Dalton Highway Corridor and central Yukon River watershed.

We are seeking public input on the Preliminary Alternatives Concepts and development of the RMP/EIS. Attend a meeting to learn more about the planning process and to share your concerns. Comments and input may also be submitted by email to CentralYukon@blm.gov. BLM will accept comments through March 17, 2017.


See the Meetings Page for details.
 
 
 

Public Participation Opportunities

The public will have several opportunities to become involved in the planning process. During the scoping phase, which began June 14, 2013 with the publication of the Notice of Intent in the Federal Register, the BLM asked for public input on what issues the Resource Management Plan should address. The BLM held 16 public meetings in the region during this time. The scoping period ended on January 17, 2014.The Scoping Report is now available on the Documents & Reports page.

The BLM is now in the process of developing preliminary alternatives. The BLM plans to present these to the public and encourage feedback through public meetings.  This stage provided the public with the opportunity to review the preliminary alternative concepts before refining these in the draft RMP document and will run from January 2017 to March 2017. 

Additional public participation opportunities will be available upon the completion of the Draft RMP/Draft EIS.  This is a 90-day public comment period. It is anticipated that this phase will be in the fall of 2018.   The BLM will then prepare the Proposed RMP and Final EIS before issuing the Record of Decision, anticipated for late 2019.


As meetings are scheduled, times and locations will be published on the Meetings Page.
