BLM Kemmerer Seeks Comments on Uinta County Livestock Trailing


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) is launching a 30-day public comment period on a proposed action to issue livestock trailing permits in Uinta County, Wyo.

A scoping package is available at the KFO, 312 Hwy. 189 N., Kemmerer, Wyo., and online at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/kfo/trailing.html. It includes a map of livestock trails in the South Trail area and descriptions of the existing condition, proposed action, preliminary issues, decisions to be made and details of public involvement.

An environmental assessment (EA) will analyze the proposed action and alternatives with an estimated completion date of September 2013. The BLM is seeking constructive public comments to help identify potential issues, concerns, ideas and alternatives to be addressed in the EA. Comments are most helpful if they are substantive, specific, cite additional relevant issues, and/or determine the extent of those issues. Mail or deliver written comments by Jan. 18, 2013 to:

Bureau of Land Management
Kemmerer Field Office
C/O Marion Mahaffey
312 Hwy 189 North
Kemmerer, WY 83101

Or email to: mmahaffey@blm.gov

The BLM will accept public feedback throughout the planning process and outside established public involvement timeframes; however, these comments may be considered secondary to comments received in a timely manner and may only be assessed to determine if they identify concerns that would substantially alter the assumptions, proposal, design, or analysis presented in the EA.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail 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 may 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.
