The Bureau of Land Management will hold a public meeting on the San Juan Islands National Monument 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 12 via Zoom.

Planned agenda items include reviewing the final resource management plan and environmental impact statement and opportunities for the committee to support the implementation of the management plan once the record of decision is signed.

“The San Juan Islands National Monument Advisory Committee is an important forum for the community conversation that is a key component of public land management,” said Kurt Pindel, BLM Spokane District Manager. “By having the public participating in that conversation, we ensure the advice we get reflects a variety of perspectives on land and resource use issues.”

A one-hour comment period, during which the public may address the Monument Advisory Committee, will begin at noon. Depending on the number of people wishing to comment and time available, the amount of time for individual oral comments may be limited.

The 12-member Monument Advisory Committee provides advice and recommendations to the BLM on resource and land management issues within the San Juan Islands National Monument. Monument Advisory Committee members are citizens who represent public land interests associated with the local area and who may also advise the district office.

For more information about the upcoming Monument Advisory Committee meeting, contact Jeff Clark, Spokane district public affairs officer, at 509-536-1297 or jeffclark@blm.gov.
