BLM Seeks Public Input on Snake River RMP Amendment


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office is seeking public comment on a proposed amendment to the Snake River Resource Management Plan (RMP) to allow the sale of three parcels of public land in Teton County, Wyo.

The proposed RMP amendment would identify and allow for the disposal of 2.01 total acres of public land. To resolve unintentional unauthorized uses, 0.13 and 0.82 acres are proposed for direct sale at the appraised fair market value to Sewell Partners and Evans Land & Cattle Company. The parcels are the minimum size possible to include all improvements while ensuring that they cannot be resold or used as building sites unto themselves. A very narrow 1.06 acre parcel unsuitable for a building site is proposed for direct sale at the fair market value to TSR Limited because it is surrounded by private land and its inaccessible location makes it difficult and uneconomical for the BLM or any other agency to manage.

Mail or deliver written comments to Field Manager, Pinedale Field Office, PO Box 768, 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale, WY 82941; or email comments to Pinedale_WYMail@blm.gov with “Snake River Amendment” in the subject line. Comments must be received by 4:30 p.m., Monday, May 6.

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

More information is available at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Planning/rmps/SnakeRiver.html or by contacting Tracy Hoover at 307-367-5342.



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.
