Deadline for public input on Bristol Bay Area Plan revisions

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has released the Public Review Draft (PRD) of the Determination of Reclassification and Plan Amendment to the 2005 Bristol Bay Area Plan (2005 BBAP). Following a 90-day public review period, which may result in changes to the PRD, DNR intends to adopt the proposed revisions to the 2005 BBAP. Once adopted, this plan, as modified by the adopted plan revisions, will serve as the basis for the management of state lands and waters within the planning area for the next 20 years.

The state would like input on the PRD. Written comments must be received on or before April 4, 2013, by mail, email, fax or through the DNR website.
