“Rocky Mountain RAC members represent Colorado’s communities east of the continental divide. Providing essential feedback on matters of public interest, RAC members are vital to successfully engaging those we serve. This process ensures broad perspectives are considered when decisions are made,” said Rocky Mountain District Manager Cathy Cook.
A public comment period is scheduled at 11:05 a.m. on Nov. 9. Agenda items include selecting a chairperson to lead the RAC and a vote on a fee proposal for recreation sites managed by the Royal Gorge Field Office.
The three 15-member Resource Advisory Councils in Colorado are forums for providing advice and recommendations to the BLM on various resource and land management issues. The Rocky Mountain RAC advises the BLM Colorado Rocky Mountain District, including the Royal Gorge and San Luis Valley field offices, and Browns Canyon National Monument.
