Dakotas Resource Advisory Council to Meet in Dickinson


The Bureau of Land Management’s Dakotas Resource Advisory Council will be meeting in Dickinson, on Sept. 2, 2009, at the Days Inn, Grand Dakota Lodge located at 532 15th Street West. 

The meeting is open to the public. A formal public comment period has been set for 1:00 p.m. for anyone wishing to bring issues to the attention of the RAC. The council will hear updates to ongoing resource management planning efforts for both states and will assist in evaluating areas of ecological importance.

The 15-member council advises the Secretary of the Interior, through the BLM, on a variety of issues associated with public land management in the Dakotas. The Federal Land Policy and Management Act directs the Secretary of the Interior to involve the public in the planning and management of public lands administered by the BLM. The RAC is an effective partner in helping resolve public lands issues that affect residents in North and South Dakota.              

For more information about the RAC or the upcoming meeting, please contact, Lonny Bagley, Field Manager, North Dakota Field Office, 99 23rd Avenue West, Dickinson, North Dakota, 701.227.7700, or Marian Atkins, Field Manager, South Dakota Field Office, 310 Roundup St., Belle Fourche, South Dakota, 605.892.7000.


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.
