Instead, a second meeting will take place in Flagstaff, Ariz. and will be publicly announced by the BLM no later than 15 days prior to the meeting.
The November 12, 2014 meeting scheduled for tonight in St. George, Utah from 4 to 6 p.m. will take place as scheduled. The public scoping meeting in St. George will be held at the Lexington Hotel and Conference Center, 850 South Bluff Street St. George, Utah.
The BLM received public input requesting that a meeting be held in Arizona. Moving the meeting to Flagstaff allows the BLM to conduct scoping in a broader geographic area surrounding the proposed project.
The Bureau of Land Management Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument and Arizona Strip Field Office are proposing the Uinkaret Mountains Landscape Restoration Project and are studying management methods which may include manual, mechanical and chemical treatments, management of wildfires, use of prescribed fires, and seeding treatments, depending on the specific resource management goals and desired outcomes.
The public scoping comment period for the Uinkaret Mountains Landscape Restoration Project Environmental Impact Statement began on October 21, 2014. Comments are welcome from the public at the public open-house meetings, by mail to 345 East Riverside Drive, St. George, UT 84790, or by email to email@example.com.

The BLM manages more land – 245 million acres -- than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
