BLM Invites Public Comments on King Range Fee Proposal


The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on a proposal for a new permit and fee system in the King Range National Conservation Area on northern California’s Lost Coast.

A business plan detailing the fee proposal is available online at www.blm.gov/ca/arcata, by contacting the King Range National Conservation Area at (707) 986-5400, or by emailing a request to ca338@blm.gov.

Written comments are due by Sept. 9, 2013. They should be sent to Bureau of Land Management, King Range National Conservation Area, PO Drawer 189, Whitethorn, CA 95589 or sent by email to ca338@blm.gov. “King Range Business Plan” should be used in the subject line.

The BLM proposes to begin collecting fees in 2014 at campgrounds or other areas where equipment or services are provided to the public. The agency also proposes a new overnight wilderness use permit and fee.

All fees would be used in the King Range to maintain and improve facilities and services, increase law enforcement and fund programs focused on natural resource conservation and improvement.
