Getting Involved

The BLM has implemented a collaborative, community-based planning process for the RMP/EIS and public input is critical to its success. Issues raised through public participation have driven the different management options that are considered in the RMP which will ultimately lead to how BLM public lands are managed.

PUBLIC SCOPING AND COMMENT PERIOD ENDED FEBRUARY 11, 2011. We would like to thank those of you who submitted written comments. It was not necessary to attend a scoping session in order to submit a comment. Scoping comments were accepted via email, as well as by mail. Your input is critical to producing an effective RMP.

Comments are welcomed, reviewed, and considered throughout the planning process. To submit comments, you may open, fill out and print the mail-in (or fax-in) comment form. E-mail comments can also be sent to BattleMountainRMP@blm.gov . Please include your name and mailing address in your e-mail (see privacy notice).
