BLM Invites Comments on Pine Nut Land Health Project under the National Historic Preservation Act
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District, Sierra Front Field Office is inviting public comments under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) for the proposed Pine Nut Land Health Project (Project) in Douglas, Lyon and Carson City Counties, Nevada.
The Project involves vegetation treatments that would be implemented over a 10 to 15 year period on public lands in the Pine Nut Mountains. When a project is phased over multiple years, a Programmatic Agreement (PA) is often used to outline the steps the BLM will take to comply with the NHPA, including identification of historic properties and avoiding or resolving adverse effects that could be caused by the Project. The draft PA is available for review, and the public is invited to provide written comments.
The public comment period closed on March 5, 2014.
