BLM Cody Hosts Public Meeting for Resource Management Plan Implementation

The Bureau of Land Management will host a public meeting on September 27in Cody to discuss implementation of the approved Cody Resource Management Plan.

At this meeting, people will see how input they gave at previous meetings in the spring helped revise the BLM’s implementation strategy and priorities. Additionally, the BLM is seeking input on defining the Cody Interface, which was identified by the public as an area of high value and interest.

The public meeting will be held in the Grizzly Room at the Park County Public Library in Cody, 1500 Heart Mountain Street, on September 27 from 5-7 p.m.

The record of decision for the Cody RMP was signed on Sept. 21, 2015. Key to this accomplishment was a robust public involvement process which has continued as RMP implementation has moved forward.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
