Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The RAC accomplishes its purpose by providing recommendations to the BLM.
How is membership balanced?*Advisory council is composed of 15 members distributed in a balanced fashion among the following groups and within those groups. Specific interests include: Category I - 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 - 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 - 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 RAC did not meet in FY2020. The RAC generally strives to meet an average of two to three times a year. Topics covered at the meetings are very relevant, such as considering recreation fee proposals, and support the timely distribution of Secure Rural Schools Title II funds.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The RAC develops recommendations for the BLM regarding the preparation, amendment, and implementation of land use plans for the public lands and resources within the jurisdiction of the RAC. This may require the RAC to, at the direction of the Designated Federal Official, gather and analyze information, conduct studies and field examinations, hear public comments, and provide advice on the issues presented. The RAC will also make recommendations on Secure Rural Schools Title II project proposals when the legislation is authorized.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThe Northwest Oregon (2551) Resource Advisory Council was consolidated with the Coastal (2550) and Southwest Oregon (2552) Resource Advisory Councils into a single Western Oregon (84606) Resource Advisory Council.
