Meeting Schedule

Thursday, October 15, 2009 6:30-8:00 pm Forest Service/ District Ranger's Office, Council

Thursday, October 29, 2009 6:30-8:00 pm BLM District Office, Boise

Below is a brief description of the preliminary alternatives.

Alternative A: No-Action
Required as a baseline against which to compare the effects of the other alternatives

Alternative B: Emphasize Resource Conservation
Emphasizes protecting natural resource values on BLM land from the potential negative impacts of population growth and increased growth
⇔ Protective measures, for plants and wildlife, to address increasing use of public lands

Alternative C: Accommodate Growing Demand for Public Land Uses
Recognizes population growth as the leading factor for land management decisions in the Four Rivers Planning Area
⇔ Management actions, focused in "core areas" that accommodate population growth (recreation, community expansion, etc.)

Alternative D: Maximize BLM Management Efficiency
Proposes focused, multiple use of "core areas" for efficient and effective management
⇔ Efforts would concentrate on blocks of BLM land where resources could be more effectively managed
