The BLM has implemented a collaborative, community-based planning process for the RMP/EIS and public input is critical to its success. Issues raised through public participation have driven the different management options that are considered in the RMP which will ultimately lead to how BLM public lands are managed.
For the BLM to formally consider your comments on the Notice of Intent to prepare a RMP and EIS for the Battle Mountain District, written comments are required. To assure consideration, you should provide comments by February 11, 2011.
To submit comments, you may open, fill out and print the mail-in (or fax-in) comment form. E-mail comments can also be sent to BattleMountainRMP@blm.gov. Please include your name and mailing address in your e-mail (see privacy notice). Comments are welcomed, reviewed, and considered throughout the planning process.
