This spring, the Bureau of Land Management will release a draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) that will include its proposed decision on where to allow oil and gas leasing and under what type of management. To prepare for the coming RMP, the Western Slope Conservation Center has been working with a team of community members and Citizens for a Healthy Community to develop the North Fork Alternative Plan.
The North Fork Alternative Plan sets out to adapt existing BLM management tools to the North Fork, and to craft a framework for oil and gas leasing and development that is highly protective of the North Fork's important features and resources.
The proposal can be viewed at the website www.theconservationcenter.org.
The Conservation Center and Citizens for a Healthy Community are hoping there will be widespread support for the North Fork Alternative Plan, and are seeking letters of support sent to the Bureau of Land Management from members of the community, local businesses and town councils.blog comments powered by Disqus
