The RAC provides recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior on behalf of the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service that identify beneficial ideas and solutions to help shape decisions concerning the planning and management of central and eastern Oregon public lands resources. RACs serve as sounding boards for initiatives, regulatory proposals, and policy changes. Each RAC consists of 10 to 15 citizens that represent diverse interests shared with their community members. RACs play a key role in allowing the BLM to continue to be a good neighbor in the communities we serve.
The meeting scheduled for November 14, 2019, will include a discussion regarding on-going planning in the BLM's Prineville and the Thirtymile Management Plan. The metting scheduled for December 19, 2019, will discuss the Prineville District BLM Lower Deschutes Fee Proposal and public outreach.
The Planning Subcommittee was established to gather information, conduct research, and analyze relevant issues and facts on selected topics for consideration by the RAC.

No decisions are made at the subcommittee level.
