Can you believe the leaves are already changing and that snow is falling on the peaks? It feels like it was spring snowmelt just weeks ago. The truth is, though, that it’s now October, and we have less than a month to submit comments to the BLM draft Resource Management Plan.
It’s absolutely essential that we each submit comments (as many as you can muster) that provide clear and substantive support for why the BLM must include conservation and recreation protections within their final plan.
This includes the North Fork Alternative, B1, plus Special Recreation Management Areas including the Jumbo trails. Want to get caught up on the RMP? Listen to this week’s Local Motion on KVNF which includes an interview with local conservation hero, Bill Day, BLM Field Manager Dana Wilson, and WSCC Executive Director Alex Johnson explaining the plan.
To make the comment writing as easy as possible, we have also created draft language by subject area with prompts. You can download it here.
We also have several draft comment letters that you can use to write your own comment to the BLM and supporting letter to other decision-makers like the Delta County BoCC:
Our community has worked incredibly hard over the last five years to respond to increased pressures of oil and gas activities within the North Fork Valley. To learn more about the North Fork Alternative, and get all of our resources for the RMP, visit our UFO RMP Page.
