Forest Service and BLM release Draft Wyoming Sage-Grouse Management Land Use Plan Amendment/Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Image of cover page for the DEISNEWS RELEASE: Public Informational Meeting Dates for February 2014: Wyoming Cities of Douglas Feb. 4th,  Casper Feb 5th, Laramie Feb 6th, Pinedale Feb 11th, Rock Springs Feb 12th, and Rawlins Feb 13th.

BLM Will Hold Public Meetings on Sage-Grouse RMP Amendments

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will hold public meetings for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Wyoming Sage-Grouse Resource Management Plan/Land Use Plan Amendments in February.

In December 2013, BLM issued the DEIS for the Wyoming Sage-Grouse RMP/LUP Amendments for the Rawlins, Rock Springs, Kemmerer, Pinedale, Casper, and Newcastle Resource Management Plans (RMPs); as well as the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Medicine Bow National Forest, and the Thunder Basin National Grassland Land Use Plans for public comment.

The BLM encourages the public to attend one of the DEIS public comment open house meetings that will be held in Rawlins, Rock Springs, Pinedale, Casper, Douglas, and Laramie, Wyo. They will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Several information stations will be located within the meeting venue that will present information on key issues, the planning process, and the public commenting process. BLM staff will give a presentation at 5 p.m. Attendees can learn about the RMP amendment comment process, ask questions, and provide comments in electronic and written formats.

The Draft Land Use Plan Amendments/Environmental Impact Statement (LUP/DEIS) considers four possible management alternatives for maintaining and increasing habitat for Greater Sage-Grouse on BLM and Bridger-Teton and Medicine Bow National Forest and the Thunder Basin National Grassland in Wyoming. The BLM and the Forest Service have been working closely with cooperating agencies to incorporate local expertise and information.

Public involvement in reviewing this draft is the next important step. Comment open house meetings will be held in February to present information on key issues, the planning process and the public comment process.
