BLM seeks input on proposed management updates in southern Oregon (Photo) - 06/06/24

LAKEVIEW, Ore. — The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for amending the 2003 Lakeview Resource Management Plan, which would update the management of 3.2 million acres of BLM-managed public lands in Lake and Harney counties. The amendment, which has been prepared to respond to a 2010 court settlement, addresses the management of public lands for wilderness characteristics, recreation, and grazing.

 

“We welcome the public’s insight and input into how we can appropriately balance the management of these lands,” said Jami Ludwig, BLM Lakeview Field Manager. “This plan will help guide BLM’s management of this landscape for the next 20 years.”

 

As directed by the 2010 settlement, the BLM’s draft EIS and plan amendment consider a wide-range of management options for lands with wilderness characteristics, grazing, and outdoor recreation, including off-highway vehicle use. Public comments received on this draft will help inform the development of a final plan, which could combine management approaches from several of the draft alternatives, if appropriate.

 

The BLM plans to host an in-person public meeting in Lakeview and two virtual public meetings during the comment period to discuss and answer questions about the plan. The BLM will announce these meetings at least 15 days in advance through the BLM National NEPA Register, public notices, media releases, social media, and/or mailings.

 

A Notice of Availability will publish in tomorrow’s Federal Register to open a 90-day comment period. Project information is available at the BLM National NEPA Register where written comments may be submitted via the “Participate Now” option (preferred) by Sept. 4, 2024. Comments may also be submitted to BLM_OR_LV_RMP_Team@blm.gov, or delivered to BLM Lakeview District, 1301 South G Street, Lakeview, OR 97630

 

For more information, please contact Michael Collins at 541-947-6112.
