BLM West Desert District and Salt Lake Field Office to move to new office building

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) West Desert District and Salt Lake Field Office are pleased to announce relocation to a new office building located at 491 North John Glenn Road, Salt Lake City, UT 84116. The new office will open to the public on Jan. 24 and help local BLM staff provide better service to the public and accomplish critical work. 
“The BLM’s needs have changed as interest in public lands has evolved and as the urban-wildland interface has expanded,” said BLM West Desert District Manager Michael Gates. “The new office building will better enable us to meet the public’s needs and to serve the communities within Utah’s West Desert, especially in relation to wildfire response and opportunities to grow the fire program.”  
“The new office building provides efficient use of space, will meet our energy efficiency goals, and is better suited to meet agency needs,” said BLM Salt Lake Field Manager Jessica Wade. “We outgrew our old location and look forward to opening the doors at our new office on John Glenn Road.”  
The district and field office will close its doors at 2370 S Decker Lake Blvd, West Valley City, UT 84119, on Jan. 12 at 4:30 p.m. Beginning on Jan. 24 at 8 a.m., the district and field office will be open to serve the public at our new location. The public can continue to receive in-person services at the BLM Utah State Office at 440 W 200 S, STE 500, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 
Our district and field office phone numbers are also changing. Our phones will be turned off from Jan. 13-17 while switching over to the new system. Starting Jan. 18, please contact the West Desert District and Salt Lake Field Office front desk at 801-320-8300. We will continue to provide public service via email at throughout the move.   
Continuing our service to the public while doing our part to address COVID-19 is very important. Because our office is in an area of high community transmission, the BLM requires all Federal employees, onsite contractors, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask inside our office building. We will continue to provide operating status updates at
