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. Once completed, these alternatives will be made available on the website. The BLM plans to present these to the public and encourage feedback through public meetings. We anticipate that the preliminary alternatives will be ready in late 2016.
As meetings are scheduled, times and locations will be published on the Meetings Page.
