BLM Pinedale sets annual planning meetings
by Bureau of Land Management
February 5, 2013
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will hold a Wildlife Annual Planning Meeting (APM) on Wednesday, February 20 followed by a Development APM on Thursday, February 21. Both meetings will be held at the BLM Pinedale Field Office, 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale, Wyoming, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
An APM is required by the 2008 Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement Record of Decision (ROD) for the Pinedale Anticline Project Area. To more fully address topics of community interest and to coincide more closely with available data, the PFO has subdivided the original APM into three annual meetings: one focused on development, one on wildlife and one on air, water and socioeconomics.
The Wildlife APM will be conducted by the Pinedale Anticline Project Office and will include wildlife monitoring results, an update on ROD Matrix species, and an update on the proposed Sublette mule deer habitat project.
Topics for the Development APM will include recent and projected operator activities and a summary of BLM permitting and inspection activities as well as management decisions.
The meetings are open to the public with opportunities for public comment.
