How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Boise District RAC provides representative citizen counsel and advice to the Secretary of the Interior through the Bureau of Land Management’s designated Federal officer concerning the planning and management of the public land resources located within the geographic area of the Boise District.
How is membership balanced?*The Boise District Resource Advisory Council is composed of 15 members distributed in a balanced fashion among the following groups: Category I includes those holding Federal grazing permits or leases, interests associated with transportation or rights-of-way, developed outdoor recreation, OHV users, or commercial recreation activities, commercial timber industry, or energy and mineral development; Category II includes nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations, dispersed recreation activities, archaeological and historical interests, or nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups; Category III includes state, county, or locally elected office-holders, employee of a State agency responsible for the management of natural resources, Indian Tribes within or adjacent to the area for which the RAC is organized, are employed as academicians in natural resource management or the natural sciences, or represent the public-at-large.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Boise District RAC generally held four meetings per year. The RAC meet once in FY2020.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The RAC provides essential public collaboration with government officials and an invaluable link between communities and the BLM's local decision-makers about the management of the public's lands in the BLM's Boise District. The RAC helps build a bridge with members of the public to increase understanding of the BLM's programs and decisions and obtain feedback and recommendations from diverse stakeholder groups. The Boise District RAC is having positive impacts in improving the management of the public lands in the Boise District and promoting our mutual goal of shared conservation stewardship.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public. Notices of the meetings are published in the Federal Register, posted on the BLM Idaho website, and distributed to local newspapers.
Recommendation RemarksThe Boise District Resource Advisory Council (2055) was consolidated with Coeur d’Alene (2056), Idaho Falls (2057) and Twin Falls District (25121) RACs into a single Idaho Resource Advisory Council (84604).
