About Resource Advisory Councils

The Front Range RAC provides advice and recommendations to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Colorado Front Range District, concerning the planning and management of the public land resources located within the geographic area of the Royal Gorge Field Office and the San Luis Valley Field Office. The 15-members of the Front Range RAC, who serve three year terms, operate on the principle of collaborative decision-making and strive for consensus before making official recommendations.
