An individual holding a ROW grant that is about to expire wishes to renew the grant.
The ROW is re-issued and the applicant — now a grantholder — has permission to continue using the ROW for the full term of the renewed grant under the specified terms and conditions.
A local telecomm provider plans to erect a tower on BLM-managed land to service rural communities in the area.
The BLM halted processing the application at the request of the applicant, after the company was able to negotiate alternate arrangements for placing its tower.
On larger-scale projects, work cannot begin until the BLM approves the grantholder's maintenance and construction plans and issues a Notice to Proceed. This approval is separate from the decision to grant the ROW.
In all cases, regulations reserve the BLM's right to revoke a grant if the grantholder does not make use of the ROW within 5 years. Terms, conditions, or stipulations of a particular grant may lengthen or shorten this window.
