BLM Resource Advisory Council to Meet in Ukiah


Public land and natural resource management topics in northwest California are on the agenda for a meeting of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Northwest California Resource Advisory Council (RAC) on April 28 and 29, in Ukiah.

On April 28, the council convenes at the BLM Ukiah Field Office, 2550 North State St., and departs for a field tour to the Indian Valley Management Area and Walker Ridge along the Lake-Colusa county line.  Members of the public are welcome.  They must provide their own transportation, food and beverages.

The business meeting is set for April 29, at 8 a.m., in the Ukiah Field Office.  The council will hear a report on the status of a wind energy development proposed for Walker Ridge, reports on management of public lands along the Sacramento River near Red Bluff, the status of BLM requests for California off-highway vehicle management grant funds, an update on trail development in the Redding area, and status reports from the BLM Arcata, Redding and Ukiah field offices.

The council will accept public comments at 11 a.m.  Anyone is welcome to address the council.  A time limit could be established to accommodate all speakers.

The 12-member RAC, one of 24 such BLM advisory councils in the nation, represents a broad range of interests in public lands and natural resources including recreation, environmental interests, local government, Native American tribes and the public at large.
