BLM to host scenic value meetings

RBC I The Bureau of Land Management is hosting a series of community workshops in northwestern Colorado the week of Aug. 8 to hear from the public about what matters to them most about the scenic views on BLM lands.These open house workshops are part of the visual resources inventory BLM is conducting in the Little Snake and White River field offices, which include BLM lands in Moffat, Rio Blanco and Routt counties, as well as a small portion of Garfield County.“We use our visual resource inventories to help us evaluate the potential visual impacts of our decisions, such as where to locate energy corridors, oil and gas development, new roads — a wide range of potential actions,” said Kent Walter, field manager for the White River Field Office in Meeker.“Hearing from the public about what is important to them about the scenic landscapes on BLM land in these areas is a critical piece of developing this inventory,” said Wendy Reynolds, field manager for the Little Snake Field Office.The public is invited to stop by any time during any of the workshops. There will be brief presentations at the beginning of the first and second hours.At Craig and Steamboat Springs, BLM will also host an open house to display preliminary results of the multiple workshops held in these two communities.For additional information, contact the Little Snake Field Office at (970) 826-5000, or the White River Field Office, (970) 878-3800.
