BLM and USFS Begin Public Scoping for Browns Canyon National Monument Resource Management Plan
The Bureau of Land Management Royal Gorge Field Office, in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service, announced a 30-day public scoping period to help guide efforts for a combined Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the 21,600-acre Browns Canyon National Monument.
By working with the public, the State of Colorado and key stakeholders, development of this RMP will further a number of Department of the Interior initiatives, including those exploring enhanced recreational opportunities for the public and building a meaningful conservation stewardship legacy. The BLM and USFS are seeking input on resource management issues that members of the public would like the agencies to address in the plan. Three public meetings will be held during the scoping period to answer questions and accept written comments:
June 3, in Salida, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the SteamPlant Event Center, 220 West Sackett Avenue
June 4, in Buena Vista, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Community Center, 715 E Main Street
June 5, in Golden, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Marriott Denver West, 1717 Denver West Boulevard
Public comments will be most helpful if received by June 13 and must be submitted through the BLM ePlanning site at https://go.usa.gov/xn2eC or mailed to BCNM RMP/EIS, 5575 Cleora Road, Salida, CO 81201.
