SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

BLM-Utah's Executive Leadership Team collaborated to produce a Draft Program Development and Budget Strategic Plan that will define BLM-Utah's organization vision and provide an important starting point for meeting future challenges. The RAC will have a discussion and provide comments on the draft plan. The RRAC will listen to fee presentations from the BLM Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, which is proposing to increase camping, day-use and group reservation picnic fees at Calf Creek Recreation Area and Deer Creek Campground. The BLM Moab Field Office is proposing to charge expanded amenity fees at the Bitter Creek, Westwater, Hideout, Cowskin, Fish Ford, and Swasey's Rapid Campgrounds. The U.S. Forest Service will present fee proposals on the Miller Flat Campground, Orange Olsen Dwelling and Bunkhouse; reduce the fee area, designate three separate stand-alone sites, and eliminate the Standard Amenity Fee at the American Fork Canyon-Recreation Fee Area; eliminate the current fee area designation and designate specific recreation sites and special recreation fee areas for groomed winter trail systems at the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway Recreation Fee Area.

Presentations will also be given on the Utah Greater Sage-Grouse Draft Land Use Plan Amendment and Environmental Impact Statement and the newly-created Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation.

A half-hour public comment period will take place from 11:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m. The meeting is open to the public; however, transportation, lodging, and meals are the responsibility of the participating individuals.
