BLM Invites Citizens to Public Lands Visioning Meetings

The Royal Gorge Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management is inviting the public to share their vision for the future of their community and how BLM managed public lands and federal minerals fit into that vision at a series of public meetings in May and early June.   Fremont County residents interested in taking part will have two opportunities to do so with meetings in Salida and Cañon City.  The envisioning meetings will help guide the BLM as they develop the Eastern Colorado Resource Management Plan.

Royal Gorge Field Office Manager Keith Berger said, “We want the public to help us determine how their public lands should be managed.”   Berger said public input helps the BLM develop a lasting framework for land use and resource management decisions.

The BLM’s Salida Envisioning meeting is set for Tuesday evening, May 26th from 7 until 9 p.m. at the Salida High School at 26 Jones Avenue in Salida.    The Cañon City meeting is set for Wednesday, June 3rd from 7 until 9 p.m. at the Washington Elementary School at 9th and Washington in Cañon City.

The revision to the BLM’s Resource Management Plan provides planning for managing development, conserving land, and protecting local communities’ character and quality of life.  You can learn more about the Eastern Colorado Resource Management Plan by going on line to
