Public Meetings Set For Land Use Plan Develpment
January 26, 2005 - People
interested in the
management of public lands and natural resources will have the
opportunity to help the U. S. Bureau of Land Management develop
management options, when the agency hosts a series of public workshop
meetings later this month.
During the meetings, staff from
Ukiah Field Office
discuss their initial work on possible management alternatives, show
maps illustrating these options, and listen to opinions and suggestions
on the work done so far.
"We want people to have an
early opportunity to see where we are headed
in developing management alternatives for the Ukiah Resource Management
Plan," said BLM Ukiah Field Manager Rich Burns. "We will consider the
suggestions received in these meetings as we develop a range of
management alternatives for our draft resource management plan and
draft environmental impact statement which will be released for formal
public comment in late summer or early fall."
The meetings, all from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m., will be held as follows:
- Ukiah: Tuesday, Feb. 22,
BLM Ukiah Field Office, 2550 North State St.
- Point Arena: Wednesday,
Feb. 23, Point Arena City Hall, 451 School St.
- Lakeport: Thursday, Feb.
24, Lake County Board of Supervisors'
Chambers, 255 N. Forbes St.
- Woodland: Friday, Feb.
25, Woodland Public Library (Leake Center), 250
During the workshop meetings,
the BLM staff will present draft
alternatives for specific public land areas managed by the BLM, such as
the Cache Creek Natural Area, North and South Cow Mountain Recreation
Areas, the Stornetta Public Lands and others. Meeting participants have
the chance to comment on whether the draft management alternatives
adequately address land use and natural resources issues.
The Ukiah Field Office manages
more than 300,000 acres of public lands
in Lake, Mendocino, Marin, Napa, Sonoma, Glenn, Colusa, Yolo and Solano
counties. The Resource Management Plan now being developed will provide
management direction for the next 20 years.
