Vail, CO Colorado

EAGLE, Colorado – The Bureau of Land Management is hosting an open house in Eagle on Tuesday to answer questions and take comments on the Draft Resource Management Plan Revision for the Colorado River Valley Field Office in Western Colorado.

The land use plan revision will guide management decisions in the field office for the next two decades. This draft plan covers 505,000 surface acres and 707,000 acres of subsurface mineral estate administered in Eagle, Garfield, Mesa, Pitkin, and Routt counties, with a small amount of acreage in Rio Blanco County.

The draft plan analyzes four alternatives covering all aspects of BLM land and mineral management in this area, including recreation, travel management, energy development, resource protection, wildlife habitat, special designations, grazing, and realty actions.

The public is invited to stop by any time during the open house meeting, which is scheduled from 3-7 p.m. Tuesday in Eagle at the Eagle Public Library at 600 Broadway.

BLM will accept public comment on the draft plan through Dec. 15.
