Mesa County sends letter of protest to BLM re: Proposed Resource Management Plan

Mesa County's Board of Commissioners this morning approved a 13-page protest letter to the Bureau of Land Management's Proposed Resource Management Plan. The letter was sent to the BLM today.

The county is protesting:
  • The economic impact of closing some routes, as proposed in the BLM plan
  • The economic impact of the plan on fluid, leasable minerals
  • Inconsistencies in the BLM plan with state and local plans
Last week, the commissioners sent a letter requesting six months to look at and respond to the Travel Management portion of the BLM's Resource Management Plan. The county will offer its objections to travel - routes, etc. - at a later time.
