Creation of Natural Resource Policy Plan

The Bowman-Slope Soil Conservation District has completed a draft Natural Resource Policy Plan. The District and Counties developed this Plan as a tool which allows a local government to have a substantive impact on federal decisions, plans, policies and programs. In fact, federal agency consideration of a local land use plan, or resource plan, can play a key role in the success of a local government engaging as a cooperating agency or with consistency review under the National Environmental Policy Act, coordination under the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act or National Forest Management Act as well as assisting in the Governor’s consistency review.
The Bowman-Slope Soil Conservation District Natural Resource Policy Plan is located on the website at www.bowslopecdlup.com/documents.html. Hard copies are available at the Bowman-Slope Conservation District Office.
In an effort to acquire community input, public meetings will be held on January 17, 2019. The time and location of the meetings are listed below. Public comment can be submitted to the Bowman Slope Soil Conservation District via mail, email or website submission.
