Small Management Plans, Minor Plan Amendments and Incompatible Use & Linear Facilities Policy Requests Highlights

Management Plans for Properties 160 Acres and Smaller

The Office Of Environmental Services has received the following land management plans for properties 160 acres and smaller in size. Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC) members who wish to have any of these plans placed on a formal ARC agenda for discussion should contact Hank Vinson, ARC Staff Director, prior to the date indicated below. Please note that at least three ARC members must make the request for a plan for a property smaller than 160 acres in size to be scheduled for an ARC agenda. If we do not receive three requests by the stated deadline to schedule a plan for consideration at an ARC meeting, the plan will be approved.
