BLM Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council to meet in August


Carson City, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will meet with the Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council (RAC) on August 8, at three locations via video conference. The meeting will be held at the BLM State Office at 1340 Financial Blvd. in Reno, the Carson City BLM office at 5665 Morgan Mill Road in Carson City, and the Winnemucca BLM office at 5100 East Winnemucca Blvd. in Winnemucca. The meeting is scheduled 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
 
The RAC advises and makes recommendations to the BLM on the management of public lands.  Discussion items will include, but are not limited to, renewable energy development and transmission, the Greater and Bi-State sage-grouse, emergency stabilization and rehabilitation, wild horse and burro program, wildland fire, drought, grazing, and recreation development plans. This meeting will include a public comment period from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.
 
The Federal Land Policy and Management Act directs the Secretary of the Interior to involve the public in planning and discussion of issues related to management of BLM-administered public lands. The Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin RAC is one of three such councils in Nevada that accommodates this community participation directive. Represented on the council are commercial and non-commercial users that include elected officials and state agencies, environmental, livestock, mining, Native American, and wild horse and burro.

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.
