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:
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.

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. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2011, recreational and other activities on BLM-managed land contributed more than $130 billion to the U.S. economy and supported more than 600,000 American jobs. The Bureau is also one of a handful of agencies that collects more revenue than it spends. In FY 2012, nearly $5.7 billion will be generated on lands managed by the BLM, which operates on a $1.1 billion budget. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
