BLM Gunnison Field Office Plans Move to Spencer Street (12-10-13)


GUNNISON, Colo. – The Bureau of Land Management Gunnison Field Office has secured a new temporary location scheduled to reopen on December 23
 
Due to the fire at the BLM Gunnison Field office on 11th Street, the office at that location will be closed indefinitely.   BLM staff is currently available at the U.S. Forest Service Office at 216 North Colorado, weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or by phone at 970-642-4940 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  
 
To better support BLM customers the Gunnison Field Office asks that you call ahead for an appointment to ensure timely support.  During this transition period BLM’s goal is to be fully operational by early January at the new temporary location on Spencer Street. 
 
BLM appreciates the support of the community, the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service and the support provided by the Gunnison Police and Fire Departments.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
