BLM Extends Public Comment Period for the Las Vegas and Pahrump Field Offices Draft Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement
Las Vegas – Nevada Bureau of Land Management (BLM) State Director Amy Lueders announced today that she will extend the current public comment period for the Las Vegas and Pahrump Field Offices Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) an additional 30 days. The extended timeframe means that the comment period on the Draft RMP/EIS, which originally was set to close January 7, 2015, will now close February 6, 2015.
Once finalized, the Las Vegas and Pahrump Field Offices RMP will provide management direction for the 3.1 million acres of public land in southern Nevada managed by the Southern Nevada District Office. The four alternatives in the Draft RMP/EIS offer a range of approaches to achieve and maintain desired resource conditions.
