More About the North Fork Plan

MAPS ARE FOR ILLUSTRATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY

Maps are provided to depict how management prescriptions and development setbacks and stipulations protect specific resources.  Maps do not necessarily indicate where all such resources are found, and may not correctly depict all places where such stipulations do or do not apply. As it works to revise its Resource Management Plan, the BLM is required to inventory public lands for resources and public uses, and to analyze how it will protect these resources wherever they exist.

 

THE NORTH FORK ALTERNATIVE PLAN IS A RESOURCE-BASED PLAN

As directed by federal law and BLM regulations and policy, the North Fork Alternative Plan is based on the area’s important resources and ensuring that these are properly protected and managed. Maps depict broad ‘management zones’ where protective management would apply.

The maps depict management zones separately, as described here, but work together to provide layered protections where overlapping resources include several protective measures.  Most of the area’s public lands and minerals have several such ‘layers’ of protection, and almost all the BLM lands and minerals in the North Fork Valley have some level of strong protection.

 

BLM IS FINALIZING ITS DRAFT MANAGEMENT PLAN THIS SPRING/SUMMER

The North Fork Alternative Plan is about winning stronger protections for the North Fork’s public lands and federal minerals.  Based on preliminary presentations by the agency, the BLM’s current draft plan for the North Fork’s public lands and minerals is not nearly as strong as the North Fork Alternative Plan. In order to secure stronger management, we need to show strong community support to the BLM. Sign the support statement to show your support of the North Fork Alternative Plan!
