PUBLIC COMMENTS REQUESTED
In July of this year, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sent a scoping notice for the Integrated Vegetation Management for Resilient Lands Programmatic Environmental Assessment (IVM-RL EA). The BLM has released draft versions of Chapter 1 (Purpose and Need) and Chapter 2 (Alternatives) of this EA for public comment.

The Draft Chapters are available under "Documents" on the left hand navigation pane.

Comments will be most beneficial if received by Monday, November 18.

The BLM is also holding a public open house.

The BLM will hold a public open house on November 14 from 4:30 to 7:00 PM at the Mace Building of the Jackson County Expo. At this open house, the BLM will have displays to help explain the draft chapters, and BLM staff specialists will be available to answer questions. You may also submit written comments at this open house. Directions, a map of the Expo, and information on parking can be found online at https://www.attheexpo.com/Page.asp?NavID=73.

Since releasing the original scoping notice, the BLM has narrowed the scope of the environmental assessment, and has developed a range of alternatives to analyze. Of particular note, the alternatives in the EA will:
  • - Include only Medford District BLM managed lands
    - Exclude lands within the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument
    - Exclude Wilderness and Wilderness Study Areas
    - Exclude commercial treatments within the Harvest Land Base land use allocation
    - Consider a smaller maximum annual commercial treatment acres than originally scoped
    - Consider a smaller maximum miles of road that could be built than originally scoped
 
Please see the public notice under "Documents" on the left hand navigation pane for more information.
