Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy for Three Solar Energy Zones in Utah: Public Workshop April 19-20, 2016

The Bureau of Land Management is developing a Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy (SRMS) for three solar energy zones (SEZs) in Utah: Escalante Valley, Milford Flats South, and Wah Wah Valley. The BLM will host a public workshop on April 19th and 20th at:

Festival Hall, 105N 100E, Cedar City, UT 84720.

The BLM is developing this strategy to identify potential impacts of solar development in SEZs and appropriate mitigation measures to address these impacts, in particular through regional compensatory mitigation. SRMS development will be a public, stakeholder-driven process. This two-day workshop represents the beginning of that public process. A detailed agenda will be forthcoming. There will be additional opportunities to attend meetings and otherwise provide input as the SRMS is developed.

A project website has been created that will serve as a source of information regarding the status of the project and opportunities for public participation.

If you are planning to attend the public workshop, please email your RSVP to: BLM_UT_Solar_Mitigation@blm.gov. Please specifically indicate in your RSVP if you plan to attend the field visit as well.

Questions about the workshop can be directed to Elizabeth Burghard, Cedar City Field Office Manager, at eburghar@blm.gov.

Welcome to the Bureau of Land Management Cedar City Field Office 
The Cedar City Field Office (CCFO) is located in southwest Utah in the Great Basin region.  Characterized by vast acres of sagebrush and pinyon-juniper clad foothills, the region offers a variety of landscapes ranging from salt desert shrub flats to high mountains with riparian, aspen, and bristlecone pine communities.  Principal mountain ranges are the Minerals, the Wah Wahs, and the Indian Peak ranges.  The Field office is home to a variety of species including the greater sage grouse, the Utah prairie dog, the Southwest Desert Elk Herd, and the Sulphur Wild Horse Herd - a breed of horse noted by its distinct markings and Spanish genetics.

The Field Office is generally quite remote and offers a wide variety of dispersed recreation. The Parowan Gap, a deep, narrow gorge west of Summit, Utah, is renowned as a site of great importance to the Paiute Indians and others for many reasons, including the Fremont era petroglyphs etched on the canyon walls. The Cedar City Field Office manages approximately 2.2 million acres of public lands. In addition, the Cedar City office lends support services to other Southern Utah field offices in program areas including fire, Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation (ESR) fuels treatments and a host of other functions.
