Bureau of Land Management

The Bureau of Land Management released on Monday an Environmental Assessment for the December oil and gas lease sale that includes nearly 8,000 acres in the North Fork Valley. Despite the Town of Paonia’s push to submit a comment within the shortened scoping period, that comment was omitted from the assessment. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh spoke with Andrew Forkes-Gudmundson, associate program director for Citizens for a Healthy Community, and BLM Public Affairs Specialist Jayson Barangan.

For reference, here are links to the BLM’s environmental assessment, The Town of Paonia’s omitted comment, and the online portal for public comment on the environmental assessment.
