OREGON - BLM Releases Baker DRMP AND DEIS For Comment - Meeting Update

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Vale District has released its Baker Field Office Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The RMP is being revised for BLM-administered lands within Baker, Union, Wallowa, Umatilla, Morrow and Malheur Counties in Oregon and Asotin County in Washington. The public lands that make up the "Decision Area" encompass approximately 428,425 surface acres in northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington.
The purpose of the Baker RMP revision is to provide broad-scale guidance for the management of public lands and resources administered by the BLM's Baker Field Office. When completed, the RMP will guide the BLM in the implementation of all its subsequent management actions and site-specific activities in the Decision Area.
Copies of the Draft RMP/EIS are available at the BLM Baker Field Office and Vale District Office or may be viewed online at http://www.blm.gov/or/districts/vale/plans/bakerrmp/draftrmp.php.

To ensure that comments will be considered, the BLM must receive written comments on the Draft RMP/EIS by February 23, 2012. You may submit comments related to the Draft RMP/EIS by any of the following methods:
