Scoping Remains Open for Resource Management Plan Revision


Public scoping remains open through April 4 for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Resource Management Plan (RMP) revision and associated environmental impact statement (EIS).

BLM seeks public input to identify impacts, develop planning criteria and evaluate existing land use decisions. To help the public frame comments, posters and handouts presented at scoping meetings earlier this month in Lander, Lyman, Rock Springs, and Farson, Wyo. are available online: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Planning/rmps/RockSprings.html.

Comments are most useful when they are specific, cite additional relevant issues and/or determine the extent of those issues. Scoping comments may be submitted via email, mail, or hand-delivery during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.):

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.
