Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Prineville District Office is developing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze a proposed project for a Right-of-Way agreement with Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and American Towers LLC to construct two new communication facilities on Glass Buttes, 15 miles east of Hampton, Oregon. BPA is a formal cooperator is the project. The proposal would also require a resource management plan (RMP) amendment to resolve a conflict in the 1989 Brothers-La Pine RMP, which currently allows development of communication sites on Glass Buttes while at the same time directing the BLM to exclude activities that have long-term visual changes to Glass Buttes.
