The subcommittee, through the Mojave-Southern Great Basin RAC, advises and makes recommendations to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on land-use planning for the Basin and Range National Monument. Discussion items will include a BLM presentation on the Monument resource management plan, which by proclamation must be completed within three years of the date of the proclamation that was signed July 10, 2015. The meeting is open to the public and a question and answer session that provides an opportunity to ask the BLM questions about the Monument will begin at 7 p.m. Written comments can also be submitted to the RAC Coordinator, Chris Hanefeld at the Ely District Office, 702 North Industrial Way, Ely, NV 89301.

The Federal Land Policy and Management Act directs the Secretary of the Interior to involve the public in planning and discussion of issues related to management of BLM-administered public lands. The Mojave-Southern Great Basin RAC is one of three such councils in Nevada that accommodate this community participation directive. Represented on the council are commercial and non-commercial users including environmental, livestock, mining, Native American, and wild horse and burro interests and elected officials and state agencies.
