The Bureau of Land Management's Buffalo Field Office is requesting public input on an environmental assessment of proposed non-competitive sale of public lands in Sheridan and Campbell counties. The BLM itself has posted an environmental assessment and an unsigned finding of no significant impact was posted on Wednesday.
Lesley Elser, public affairs specialist for the BLM explains the importance of public input during the 30-day comment period.
The BLM is considering selling eight parcels of public land, just over 208 acres in Sheridan County, to Farmland Reserve, Inc. And in Campbell County, the BLM is potentially selling a single 4.15 acre parcel to Means Revocable Trust.
The agency says in a media release these nine parcels are difficult to manage and there is no legal public access. Elser explains how members of the public can submit their comments on these potential sales.
Comments can be sent to: Field Manager, Buffalo Field Office, 1425 Fort Street, Buffalo, WY 82834. They can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with “EA 212 Acres of Land Sale” in the subject line. You have until May 27 to submit your comments. Additionally, the environmental assessment can be found at http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info....
