Notice of extension of scoping periods.
The Price Field Office and Richfield Field Office published Notices Start Printed Page 2668of Intent to prepare Resource Management Plans (RMP) in the Federal Register on November 7 and November 1, 2001 respectively. These notices officially started the scoping process for each planning area.
Since that time, the public has expressed an interest in extending the scoping period for each of these plans. In order to be responsive to the public, the Utah Bureau of Land Management (BLM) hereby extends the scoping periods for both of the above mentioned plans.
Comments, including names and addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM offices listed in this notice during regular business hours. If you wish to withhold your name and or address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state so prominently at the beginning of your written comments.
Public notification of scoping meetings and open houses will be made in local and regional publications at least 15 days prior to the meetings being held. Meetings are expected to be held in locally affected communities as well as the Wasatch Front area.
Even though the formal scoping period ends on the dates described below, opportunities to get involved in planning are still available for all of our planning efforts. You are welcome at any time to contact our offices which are involved in planning. Our ability to consider your input will become more limited the closer we get to alternative development and analysis. These phases are expected to begin in late summer and fall of 2002.
The scoping period for the Price Field Office Resource Management Plan is extended to February 1, 2002. The scoping period for the Richfield Field Office Resource Management Plan is extended to April 1, 2002. All comments regarding issues, concerns, resource values, or considerations for alternative development are due by the dates listed above and will be summarized in a forthcoming Scoping Summary Report.
