The public comment period on potential land use recommendations to Rep. Rob Bishop’s office was originally set to close on Jan. 17. But the council has since extended that period through Thursday, Jan. 30.
Comments should be sent in writing directly to: Grand County Council, 125 E. Center St., Moab UT 84532, Attn: Public Lands Bill. Email messages will not be accepted.
Once the comments have been submitted and reviewed, a council study committee will prepare a list of draft alternatives. The public will have a chance to comment on those alternatives in late February or early March, when the council plans to host a public meeting at the Grand Center.
