John Freemuth Involved in BLM Planning Proposal

Photo-Freemuth,JohnJohn Freemuth was among a group of national scholars who study public lands who provided comment on the Bureau of Land Management’s proposed planning rules. The group called for regulations that better implement federal requirements giving priority to Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) and offers specific suggestions for improvement.

Suggestions include:

  • Requiring that the new “planning assessment” process be carried out at the landscape level.
  • Strengthening provisions for monitoring, evaluation and adaptive management.
  • Clarifying the public’s opportunity to nominate new ACECs between planning cycles.
