Las Vegas – Nevada Bureau of Land Management (BLM) State Director Amy Lueders announced today that she will extend the public comment period for the Las Vegas and Pahrump Field Offices Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The extended timeframe means that the comment period on the Draft RMP/EIS, which is currently set to close February 6, 2015, will now close on March 9, 2015.
Once finalized, the Las Vegas and Pahrump Field Offices RMP/EIS will provide management direction for the 3.1 million acres of public land managed by the Southern Nevada District Office.
The four alternatives in the Draft RMP/EIS offer a range of approaches to achieve and maintain desired resource conditions.
