IMPORTANT! There's an opening for a representative from the agricultural community on the Natural Resource Coordinating Committee.
Federal law requires the BLM and Forest Service to coordinate with local government on any decisions affecting federal land in the local region, providing that the local government has an established Natural Resources plan.
This is the committe that is drafting that plan for Josephine County. Once the plan is in place, federal agencies must comply with the plan and coordinate with the county on any decisions affecting public land within our county.
In the current makeup of the committee, the preservationists slightly outnumber those who advocate the responsible utilization of our natural resources. This opening gives us an opportunity to bring more balance to the committee, and prevent our county coordination plan from being slanted toward preservationism.
If you're concerned about losing the rights to use our pubic natural resources in Josephine County, and want to have a real impact on the future of our county, please apply for this postiion!
Print the application, fill it out, and drop it off at the Commissioners’ office at the County Courthouse on 6th St between A & B Sts.
The deadline is June 23, so don’t put it off. Please apply NOW.
