ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT TO COMMENT ON THE VERNAL SUPPLEMENTAL RMP
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Vernal Field Office is currently asking for public input regarding how so-called "Lands With Wilderness Character" should be managed via a Supplement to the Vernal Field Office Draft Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (DRMP/DEIS) that was released for public review in July 2004.
The Vernal Field Office RMP/EIS presented four alternatives for managing the public lands (BLM administered lands) and their resources, and analyzed the effects of each management approach on the human environment. None of these alternatives, however, addressed managing non-WSA lands with wilderness characteristics to protect the wilderness character. Consequently, this Supplement identifies those non-WSA lands the BLM has found to possess wilderness characteristics and analyzes a fifth alternative, Alternative E, which emphasizes managing all of those lands to preserve and protect their wilderness characteristics.
The Vernal Supplemental Resource Management Plan (RMP) is available at (See links below). The comment period will conclude on January 3, 2008.
