Southeast Oregon Advisory Council Schedules June 2021 Virtual Meeting
Lakeview, Ore. — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is announcing that the Southeast Oregon Resource Advisory Council (RAC) will be meeting virtually on June 23, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.
Advisory councils provide advice and recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior on public land resource and management issues. Each citizen-based council consists of up to 15 members that represent diverse interests present in the local community.
“The RACs provide input on a wide range of BLM activities throughout the State,” Lakeview District Manager Todd Forbes said. “This diverse group of individuals from across eastern Oregon share different perspectives and help inform our decision making.”
Standing agenda items generally include management of energy and minerals, timber, rangeland and grazing, commercial and dispersed recreation, wildland fire and fuels, and wild horses and burros; review and/or recommendations regarding proposed actions by Burns, Vale, or Lakeview BLM districts; and any other business that may reasonably come before the RACs.
A half-hour comment period, during which the public may address the RAC, will be held from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Depending on the number of people wishing to comment and time available, the amount of time for individual oral comments may be limited.
To participate in the meeting, please contact Lisa McNee at email@example.com or 541-947-6811.
