BLM Preparing Area Management Plan

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Price Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management will kick off a new planning effort in January which will revise its current resource management plan for areas managed by the BLM in Emery and Carbon counties.

A new resource management plan will be the end result of this process and will serve as a blueprint for the future management of 2.5 million acres of BLM lands in Central Utah.

The comprehensive plan will address such management issues as wildlife, grazing, energy development, wilderness study areas, recreational use and how all of these uses work together.

The BLM anticipates that the planning effort will take approximately two years to complete.

"This land is truly a national resource and public treasure. As such, the planning process will be managed with extensive public participation in mind. We want and need the public's involvement in the process," said Assistant Price Field Manager Floyd Johnson.

To kick off the planning effort, a series of six public scoping meetings will be held throughout the region.

According to officials of the BLM the initial scoping meetings are intended to identify the crucial issues that should be addressed in the plan. These meetings will be held in a workshop setting, allowing for easy discussion of critical issues.

In the Castle Valley area scoping meetings are planned for Jan. 29 at the Green River City Hall in Green River; Jan. 30 at the Museum of the San Rafael in Castle Dale; and Jan. 31 at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Price.

All of the scoping meetings will be from 7 to 9 p.m.

All meetings are open to the public. Those unable to attend a meeting are encouraged to submit comments, concerns and ideas to the Price BLM Field Office, 125 South 600 West, Price, Utah 84501, attention, Floyd Johnson. Comments need to be received by Feb. 15.
