The Bureau of Reclamation and the Wyoming Division of State Parks and Historic Sites (WSPHS) are seeking public comment on the draft Glendo Reservoir Resource Management Plan/Glendo State Park Master Plan (RMP) and integrated Environmental Assessment (EA).
Reclamation and WSPHS coordinated the preparation of the integrated document to develop and implement plans for land use, resource management decisions, and the development and protection of natural, cultural, and recreational resources at Glendo Reservoir, and evaluate the associated environmental effects. Reclamation and WSPHS proposes to implement moderate recreational developments under existing management conditions at Glendo Reservoir. Based on the draft EA, Reclamation has prepared a draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).

The draft RMP may also be viewed by accessing the Wyoming State Parks and Historic Sites web site at wyoparks.state.wy.us. The review and comment period will remain open from April 6 - May 6, 2004, to assure all comments have been expressed. Comments should be sent to the attention of the Area Manager, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Wyoming Area Office, P.O. Box 1630 Mills, WY 82644.
