Nevada Recreation Resource Advisory Council to be in Las Vegas


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S Forest Service Nevada Recreation Resource Advisory Subcommittee will meet at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Visitor Center on Wednesday, February 17, 2010, from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Subcommittee will discuss the draft Red Rock Canyon Business Plan and proposed Standard Amenity and Expanded Amenity Fee increases. The BLM accepted written comments on the proposed plan and fee increases from August 14 through November 16. The BLM also held two meetings during this time period to provide the public additional opportunity to submit comments on the proposals.

The BLM also will accept public comment at the meeting on a first come, first served basis. The length of public comment will be determined by how many members of the public sign up to speak. All discussions and public comments will focus specifically on the draft Red Rock Business Plan and proposed fee increases.

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.
