Regions 4, 5, and 6 Review

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will hold public workshops in four western states between May 29 and June 6. All workshops will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. local time. The dates and locations for are as follows:

The workshops are being held to get local input on an ongoing review of federally designated energy corridors across BLM and USFS managed lands in northern California, Idaho, Montana, western Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. We value your input and look forward to your feedback on how we can improve the West-wide energy corridors to better serve the nation's energy transmission needs.

If you plan to participate in any of these meetings, an RSVP is required so that we have enough materials available for participants. Please indicate which meeting(s) you would like to attend and provide an email address as requested on the RSVP form (click here to RSVP).

BLM, USFS, and DOE have released revised Regions 4, 5, and 6 corridor abstracts, available on the Regions 4, 5, and 6 Regional Review page and through the corridor mapping tool. We encourage your review of the abstracts prior to the stakeholder workshops.

Opportunities for Stakeholder Engagement

As each Regional Review is initiated, opportunities to engage in that review will be posted as Announcements to the Home Page of this website. Opportunities for involvement will be posted as they become available. Stakeholders will be notified at least 15 days in advance of any meetings, webinars, or solicitations for comments. Outreach may include webinars, meetings, web postings, or other appropriate means.

We welcome stakeholder participation during the reviews of the Section 368 energy corridors and in the development of potential corridor revisions, deletions, and additions. We value any input you have and look forward to your feedback on how the Agencies can improve the West-wide energy corridors to better serve the energy transmission and distribution infrastructure needs of the western United States.

The Settlement requires an open and transparent process for Regional Reviews, with engagement by tribes, States, local governments, and other interested parties as part of the process. For more information about the Regional Reviews, including documents, and implementation, see the Regional Reviews page.

Questions or comments on the Section 368 Corridors are welcome at anytime and can be submitted electronically to blm_wo_368corridors@blm.gov
