Community Calendar Jan. 4-10, 2017

The Bureau of Land Management requests public input for a Revised Draft Southern Nevada District Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement.

The BLM has determined that a Revised Draft RMP/EIS should be developed and an opportunity for public input is needed to gather additional information on the areas of renewable energy, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, lands with wilderness characteristics, land tenure adjustments (land disposals), Gold Butte National Monument, and socio-economics.

Opportunity to provide input is offered to Mesquite residents on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at Mesquite City Hall.

During this period, the BLM will conduct a public meeting to present information and provide for the opportunity for public input. The Revised Draft RMP/EIS will incorporate substantive comments received from the initial Draft RMP/EIS and information received from the public input period and meetings.

The public information meetings will be held from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. on the day of each scheduled meeting. The meetings will begin with an open house format where participants can ask questions and visit various resource stations, with formal presentations at 5:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. The public will be able to verbally provide information beginning at 7 p.m. with a three-minute time limit.  Court reporters will be available to record verbally-provided information.

In addition to the public meetings, you may provide information through one of the methods listed below:

  • E-mail: sndo_rmp_revision@blm.gov
  • Fax: (702) 515-5023
  • Mail: BLM Southern Nevada District Office, Southern Nevada District RMP Revision, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130

Updated information on the Revised Draft RMP will be available at https://go.usa.gov/xnBqm.
