Alaska Comments needed.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces the release of the Ring of Fire Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) Haines Planning Area Amendment and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for a 90-day public review and comment period. The BLM will accept public comments from December 14, 2012, through March 14, 2013.

The decisions to be made through this planning effort include:

 

Whether to retain the Special Recreation Management Area designation;

Whether any part of the Planning Area meets the criteria for an Area of Critical Environmental Concern designation;

Whether to retain the Monitoring and Control Area (closed to helicopter landings) for wildlife studies; and

Establishing a maximum number of authorized annual helicopter landings.

The Planning Area is located in Southeast Alaska. Approximately 320,000 acres of BLM-managed public lands are located in two main blocks or parcels: the north block is located northwest of Skagway, along the United States-Canada border; the south block is located southwest of the City of Haines, along the boundary of Glacier Bay National Park. The planning area encompasses the cities of Haines and Skagway.

 

The Draft RMP Amendment / DEIS considers four management alternatives, which are designed to address resource concerns and issues in varying ways.

The public is invited to review and comment on the Draft RMP Amendment / DEIS.  Public comments will be most helpful if they relate to specific concerns or conflicts that are within the legal responsibilities of the BLM and can be resolved in this planning process.

 

Written comments should be mailed or hand delivered to the BLM Anchorage Field Office, Attention - Haines Amendment, 4700 BLM Road, Anchorage, AK 99507. Comments may also be sent via email to:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

The BLM will announce future meetings or hearings and any other public involvement activities at least 15 days in advance through public notices, media news releases, and/or mailings.

 

Copies of the Draft Ring of Fire RMP - Haines Planning Area Amendment and DEIS are available at the Anchorage Field Office at the above address; or, on the Anchorage Field Office's planning website: http://www.blm.gov/ak/st/en/prog/planning.html.
