AGENCY:

Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION:

Notice of public meeting.

SUMMARY:

A Notice of Proposed Withdrawal was published in the Federal Register (FR) on June 29, 2015, for approximately 5,216.18 acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) managed public domain and revested Oregon California Railroad lands and 95,805.53 acres of National Forest System lands (80 FR 37015). The application provides a two-year temporary segregation of the described Federal land from settlement, sale, location, and entry under public land and United States mining laws. The requested withdrawal is to protect lands identified in House Resolution 682 and Senate Bill 346, known as the Southwestern Oregon Watershed and Salmon Protection Act, while Congress considers the merits of the proposed legislation to permanently withdraw those areas.

Date and Address:

Public meetings will be held on Wednesday, September 9, 2015, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Curry County Fairgrounds, Docia Sweet Hall, 29392 Ellensburg Ave., Gold Beach, Oregon 97444, and Thursday, September 10, 2015, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Anne G. Basker Auditorium, 600 NW. Sixth Street, Grants Pass, Oregon 97526.
