Western Oregon Resource Council Public Meeting March 30-31 | News

0

The Bureau of Land Management’s Western Oregon Resource Advisory Council plans to meet March 30-31.

At the meeting, the BLM will provide an overview of Title II of the Safe Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act process and provide an update on recreation fee proposals. Title II funds support restoration projects that might not otherwise have been completed, such as improving the maintenance of existing infrastructure, improving forest ecosystems, and restoring the health of the land and of water quality. In turn, these projects create additional employment opportunities in western Oregon communities and foster collaborative relationships between those who use public lands and those who manage them.

Individuals, nonprofits, organized groups, and local governments are encouraged to submit funding requests for natural resource projects that benefit the lands of Oregon’s 18 western counties: Benton, Clackamas , Columbia, Coos, Curry, Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Multnomah, Polk, Tillamook, Washington and Yamhill.

The meeting will be held on the Zoom platform from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day on March 30 and 31. The meetings are open to the public, with a public comment period scheduled for March 30 at 2:30 p.m. Those wishing to participate in the Zoom meetings should register before the meeting at: https://blm.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_pLpbh88OQmq55ry73zC-CA
