Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Notice is hereby given that the Utah Bureau of Land Management, Richfield Field Office has completed an EA/FONSI for a Proposed Amendment to the Henry Mountain MFP and is available for public review. The public lands involved are covered by the Henry Mountain MFP and are located in Townships 28 through 30 South, Ranges 15 through 17 East, Salt Lake Meridian, Utah.
A livestock permittee (in coordination with the BLM and a land conservation group) has proposed to voluntarily relinquish a portion of his livestock grazing privileges within the Robbers Roost Allotment for the long term benefit of land and wildlife resources. Subsequently, the proposed action would be to prohibit livestock grazing in a portion of the Robbers Roost Allotment and would amend the MFP by changing the allocation of livestock forage within that area. In order to keep livestock out of the area of the allotment where grazing privileges are relinquished, construction of two segments of new fence and a cattleguard would be necessary.
The protest period for this proposed amendment commences with the publication of this notice. Protests must be submitted to the Director of the Bureau of Land Management on or before March 20, 2000. In accordance with 43 CFR 1610.5-2, Protest Procedures, any person who has participated in this planning process and has an interest which is or may be adversely affected by the amendment of this management framework plan may protest this proposed amendment to the Director of the Bureau of Land Management.
Protests to the proposed plan amendment must be addressed and sent to the Director (WO-210), Bureau of Land Management, Attn: Brenda Williams, Resource Planning Team, 1849 C Street, NW., Washington, DC 20240, within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice for the proposed planning amendment.
