On Wednesday, Nov. 9 the Bureau of Land Management began a 30-day public comment period on a preliminary environmental assessment which includes 20 parcels totaling 27,529 acres in Grand County.

The environmental assessment is available for review at https://www.blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files/uploads/Energy-Oil_Gas-Leasing-Colorado-5.17-EA_0.pdf

The BLM received 119 comments during the public scoping period announced in August to help identify issues to be addressed in this environmental assessment.

“Public involvement is an important part of our evaluation of the proposal,” said Northwest District Manager Andrew Archuleta.

“The most effective comments during this comment period will be specific to the proposal and the environmental assessment.”
