LEASE SALE IS BACK! BLM PLANNING TO LEASE NORTH FORK PARCELS IN FEBRUARY 2013 SALE!!!

BLM has announced they are moving forward with the leasing of 20 parcels, comprising about 20,000 acres, in the North Fork Valley at their February 14, 2013 lease sale.

Today, Nov. 16, begins a 30 day protest period that ends on Dec. 17th.  The full 281-page Final Environmental Assessment is available online here.

BLM intends to lease many of the lands down-valley, around Paonia, Hotchkiss, and Crawford. This was a horrible idea last December and it’s still a horrible idea today. Citizens for a Healthy Community will continue to adamantly oppose the leasing of these lands.

Citizens for a Healthy Community will review the Final Environmental Assessment in full, and next week we’ll give you more details about what you can do to fight this lease sale.
