BLM Advisory Council Plans Meeting in Coalinga


Land management issues for Central California will be on the agenda when the Bureau of Land Management’s Central California Resource Advisory Council meets in Coalinga on Sept. 17-18.

The RAC will meet Sept. 17 at Harris Ranch, 24505 West Dorris Ave. in Coalinga beginning at 9 a.m.  Time for public comment is reserved from 11 a.m. to noon. Agenda items include resource management plans for the Carrizo Plain National Monument and BLM’s Bakersfield Field Office, an update of statewide BLM issues, and reports from BLM Central California managers. On Sept. 18, RAC members will tour lands managed by BLM’s Hollister Field Office west of Interstate 5. 

The meeting and tour are open to the public, but individuals who wish to attend the tour must provide their own vehicles, food and water. High-clearance vehicles are recommended for the tour. 

“The advisory council provides a valuable forum for BLM and the public to exchange views on management of public lands,” said Kathy Hardy, Central California District manager.

For more information, contact David Christy, BLM Central California District public affairs officer, at (916) 941-3146.

The 12-member council, one of 24 such advisory councils in the western states, is comprised of members who represent broad natural resource interests including livestock grazing, environmental groups, recreation, wild horse and burro management, history and archaeology, the academic sector, local government and the public at large.
