BLM Buffalo Field Office Hosts Scoping Meetings

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office (BFO) is proposing to amend its 1985 Resource Management Plan (RMP) with an associated Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Fortification Creek Area (FCA). Existing land use decisions need to be evaluated to determine whether they are still relevant given the mixed ownership pattern and other management challenges within the FCA.

BLM is requesting public comments to identify relevant issues. Comments will be accepted through November 10, 2007.

Who:   Bureau of Land Management, Buffalo Field Office

What:  BLM will host public scoping meetings from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
