BLM Idaho Resource Advisory Council meeting set for Wednesday in Twin Falls
Officials with the Bureau of Land Management are inviting the public to attend Wednesday’s public meeting and hearing of the bureau’s Idaho Resource Advisory Council.
The 15-member advisory council, which has three vacancies, brings together the public and different groups to provide suggestions and recommendations to the BLM.
“The Resource Advisory Council gives the BLM the benefit of citizen-based perspectives that can help guide public land use planning and management throughout the state,” BLM Idaho State Director Karen Kelleher said in a written statement. “We’re looking forward to their insights on a variety of projects and issues across Idaho’s public lands.”
Wednesday’s meeting is scheduled to include a briefing on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s implementation in Idaho, along with a discussion of renewable energy strategies and the proposed Lava Ridge Wind Project.
The meeting runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain Time on Wednesday at the BLM’s Twin Falls District Office, 2878 Addison Ave. E. A public comment period will begin at 4 p.m. Anyone interested in attending may attend the meeting in person or remotely via Zoom.
More information is available at the Idaho Resource Advisory Council’s website. Nominations to fill the vacancies on the council are being accepted through Nov. 4. If interested, more information is available at https://on.doi.gov/3rCYRBE.
