Resource Management Plan Amendment 45-day Scoping Period

Two years in the making, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on Friday began its 45-day public scoping period for an amendment to the Resource Management Plan (RMP) approved in 2020 for our area, and required by legal setttlement agreements. In the process for amending the 20-year plan, the BLM will consider whether and where to allow oil and gas development, how to minimize harm from drilling to Gunnison sage grouse and big game, and management of lands with wilderness characteristics. The scoping period runs through February 20. Read our press release here.
