The 12-member council advises the Secretary of the Interior, through the BLM, on a variety of planning and management issues associated with public land management in the Central California District, which includes the Bishop, Bakersfield, Central Coast, Ukiah and Mother Lode Field Offices. The meeting will include consideration by the RAC of proposed campground fee increases for the Bishop Field Office. The RAC charter states:
Upon the request of the Designated Federal Official (DFO), the Council may make recommendations regarding a standard amenity recreation fee or an expanded recreation amenity fee, whenever the recommendations related to public concerns in the state or region covered by the council regarding:
(A) The implementation of a standard amenity recreation fee or an expanded amenity recreation fee or the establishment of a specific recreation fee site;
(B) The elimination of a standard amenity recreation fee or an expanded amenity recreation fee; or
(C) The expansion or limitation of the recreation fee program.
The Council may make these recommendations for the BLM when amenity recreation fees are at issue and it would facilitate implementation of the REA. With the concurrence of the Forest Service (FS) when their amenity recreation fees are at issue, the Council may also make these recommendations for BLM and/or FS if that would facilitate the effective implementation of the REA.
There will be a presentation on the fee proposal at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20. Information on the proposed fee increase is available on the web at http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/bishop.html.

The meeting is open to the public.
