The 15-member John Day-Snake RAC was chartered and appointed by the Secretary of the Interior. Their diverse perspectives are represented in commodity, conservation, and general interests. They provide advice to the BLM and, as needed, to the U.S. Forest Service resource managers regarding management plans and proposed resource actions on public land in the John Day-Snake area.
The Planning Subcommittee was established to gather information, conduct research, and analyze relevant issues and facts on selected topics for future consideration by the RAC. The Subcommittee's primary goal is to provide information to the RAC members that allows them to better respond to time-sensitive issues, such as responding to an environmental document within the public comment period. No decisions are made at the subcommittee level.
Standing RAC meeting agenda items include management of energy and minerals, timber, rangeland and grazing, commercial and dispersed recreation, wildland fire and fuels, and wild horses and burros; review of and/or recommendations regarding proposed actions by Vale or Prineville BLM districts and the Wallowa-Whitman, Umatilla, Malheur, Ochoco, and Deschutes National Forests; and any other business that may reasonably come before the RAC.
Information to be distributed to the RAC is requested prior to the start of each meeting. Final agendas will be posted online at https://www.blm.gov/get-involved/resource-advisory-council/near-you/oregon-washington/john-day-rac at least one week prior to the meeting.
The Designated Federal Officer attends all calls and meetings, takes minutes, and publishes these minutes on the RAC web page at https://www.blm.gov/get-involved/resource-advisory-council/near-you/oregon-washington/john-day-rac.
All calls and meetings are open to the public in their entirety. The public may send written comments to the subcommittee and RAC in response to material presented. Comments can be mailed to: BLM Vale District; Attn. Don Gonzalez; 100 Oregon Street; Vale, OR 97918.
