MOAB — The Bureau of Land Management-Utah’s Moab Field Office is hosting a public open house today from 4-7 p.m., in the Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City, to provide information about the Moab Master Leasing Plan, draft amendments to the Moab and Monticello Resource Management Plans and a draft Environmental Impact Statement, which are available for public review online.
The Master Leasing Plan considers new leasing of oil and gas and potash on approximately 785,000 acres of public lands within the planning area.
