BLM meeting plots future of area lands

The Bureau of Land Management will hold a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the L.O.V.E. Building in Grass Valley’s Condon Park to identify issues and concerns for the future management of more than 20,000 acres of public lands in Nevada and Yuba counties.

Deane Swickard, BLM Folsom field manager, said the information will be used for a new regional Resources Management Plan that will guide area BLM activities on public lands for the next 20 years.

Preliminary issues and management concerns have been identified by BLM personnel as:

• Management of public land resources at the watershed level.

• Management of ecosystems and riparian areas to maintain and improve conditions.

• Management and protection of sensitive, rare, threatened, or endangered species.

• Management of Wild and Scenic River corridors.

• Implementation of the Federal Wildland Fire Policy.

Other topics will include fluid and solid mineral development, meeting the needs of local and regional communities, land tenure adjustments and the consideration of lands for special management designation, cultural resource protection, and the provision of recreation opportunities for the public. For more information, call BLM at (916) 985-4474.
