BLM Invites Public Comment on Proposed Green River Land Sale


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office is considering the sale of two parcels of public land totaling 970 acres in Sweetwater County, Wyo., to the City of Green River under the provisions of the Federal Land Policy Management Act of 1976.  

The City of Green River has submitted a formal proposal for acquisition of the land to ensure the city’s future economic growth and development. The 1997 BLM Green River Resource Management Plan identified these parcels adjacent to the city as suitable for disposal and the sale is in the initial stages of processing. 

An environmental assessment (EA) will analyze the effects of the proposed sale. The BLM is seeking constructive public comments to help identify potential issues, concerns, ideas and alternatives to be addressed in the EA. Mail or deliver written comments by June 7 to Lance Porter, BLM Rock Springs Field Office, 280 Highway 191 N., Rock Springs, WY 82901-3447.  

Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personal identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
