BLM hosting another open house on its new land use plan

The Bureau of Land Management's Cody Field Office is hosting another open house on Thursday to discuss the implementation of its new land use plan.

The meeting will give people an opportunity to weigh in on which projects should take the highest priority as the BLM implements its new Resource Management Plan.

“We’re hosting another open house because we want to ensure we are hearing from people what they think our implementation priorities should be,” Cody Field Manager Delissa Minnick said in a statement. “There will be future opportunities for participation in the implementation process, but this is a critical first step.”

The roughly 600-page Cody Resource Management Plan was finalized last September after years of work by the agency, other local agencies and interested citizens. It was part of a process that revised the BLM's plans for managing the entire Big Horn Basin. "Robust public involvement" was key to finishing the document, the BLM says, and it will continue to keep the public involved as the new plan is implemented.

Thurdsay's open house will be held in the Grizzly Room at the Park County Public Library in Cody, 1500 Heart Mountain Street, from 5-7 p.m.

The BLM scheduled Thursday's event after an April open house at the Cody Club Room drew only a small crowd.

For more information about the approved Resource Management Plan and how to stay involved, visit the Cody Field Office's website or contact BLM Planning and Environmental Coordinator Bradley Johnson at 307-578-5928 or bbjohnson@blm.gov.
