BLM Hosts RAC Field Tour and Public Meeting in Cedar City
The public is invited to attend a public meeting and field tour for the Utah Resources Advisory Council in Cedar City.
A Bureau of Land Management press release on Friday said this will be to get “advice and recommendations on public land planning efforts.
The public meeting will take place over the course of two days, May 17 and 18. On May 17 the meeting will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the BLM Utah Color Country District Office. Some of the agenda items will cover the 2023 fire season, the Inflation Reduction Act, District Planning, and more.
“Both field tours and public meetings can be valuable tools for resource management decision making,” said BLM Utah Director Gregory Sheehan. “These opportunities allow stakeholders to gain a more-comprehensive understanding of resource management, provide input and ensure collaboration with others to find solutions.”
