Comment Period for Draft Lander RMP Extended


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces a 45-day extension of the comment period on the Draft Lander Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

The BLM initially scheduled 90 days for comment on the draft plan but because of requests from state and local governments, the comment period is being extended by 45 days beyond the original closing date of December 7.

Comments should be submitted by Jan. 20, 2012, using the following methods:

The document can be found online at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Planning/rmps/lander.html and hard copies are available for review at public libraries throughout Fremont, Natrona and Sweetwater counties and at the Lander Field Office and the Wind River/Bighorn Basin District Office in Worland.

For more information, contact Project Lead Kristin Yannone at 307-332-8400.



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.
