Does the Council wish to adopt a resolution opposing the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM's) preferred alternative for the Western Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR)?
Staff recommends Council provide direction after hearing the presentation from KSWild.
KS Wild has requested that the City Council adopt a resolution opposing the preferred alternative for the BLM's WOPR. The City of Eugene adopted a similar resolution earlier this year. Although the comment period has officially closed, concerns continue to be expressed about these proposed changes.
As discussed in the letter from KS Wild, the reason for Ashland to oppose the preferred alternative is because of the impacts to the quality of outdoor recreation and because the option will increase fire danger in Southern Oregon. The WOPR would not apply in the Ashland watershed, but would apply to the areas the BLM manages both west and east of Ashland.
Staff is attaching several documents that relate to this federal action, including comments forwarded by Jackson County.
