BLM Hosts Public Workshops on Yuma Resource Management Plan

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Yuma Field Office will host four public workshop meetings to provide the public the opportunity to learn more about the resource management planning process underway for the Yuma Resource Management Plan (RMP) and an associated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The meetings will also allow the public to provide input into the formulation of alternative management strategies. Each public meeting will begin with a brief overview of the RMP/EIS process. The balance of each session will be focus on receiving input from the public on areas of concern that surfaced during the public comment period last summer. Discussion topics will include transportation, recreation, biological resources, and land tenure.
