BLM seeks public input on Casper Resource Management Plan evaluation
Casper, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management Casper Field Office is seeking public comments as it evaluates its 2007 Casper Resource Management Plan. The draft evaluation report is available for a 30-day public comment period.
The public is invited to submit comments on the draft report, which assesses the existing land use plan to determine whether current mitigation measures are satisfactory; whether there has been significant change in the related plans of other federal agencies, state or local governments, or Indian tribes; or whether there is new data of significance to the plan. Findings from the evaluation may be used to initiate plan maintenance, amendments, or a revision.
A Record of Decision for the Casper RMP was approved on December 10, 2007. The plan provides a framework for managing approximately 1.4 million acres of federal surface lands and 4.7 million acres of federal mineral estate in Converse, Goshen, Natrona, and Platte counties, Wyoming.
The deadline to submit comments is February 10, 2023. After comments are reviewed and incorporated, a final evaluation report will be made available.
