How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The members of the John Day-Snake Resource Advisory Council (RAC) work collaboratively to examine or refine planning efforts and collaborative efforts between agencies within the RAC's jurisdiction. The subcommittee works closely with specialists in a given subject area to inform and make recommendations to the full RAC on those specific topics. The public is invited to raise concerns or make comments on projects or attend site visits to learn about resource issues. RAC members share an array of insights on emerging issues, which helps BLM managers meet the goal of improved service and accountability.
How is membership balanced?*The RAC is composed of 15 members distributed in a balanced fashion among the following groups and within those groups. Specific interests include: Category I includes those holding Federal grazing permits or leases, interests associated with transportation or rights-of-way, developed outdoor recreation, OHV users, or commercial recreation activities, commercial timber industry, or energy and mineral development. Category II includes nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations, dispersed recreation activities, archaeological and historical interests, or nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups. Category III includes state, county, or locally elected office-holders, employee of a State agency responsible for the management of natural resources, Indian Tribes within or adjacent to the area for which the RAC is organized, are employed as academicians in natural resource management or the natural sciences, or represent the public-at-large.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The RAC generally meets 3-4 times a year.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The RAC allows BLM managers to receive advice and feedback from a wide variety of interested citizens in a single, interactive forum at regularly scheduled meetings. This FACA committee consists of members appointed by the Secretary of the Interior that provide valuable recommendations and advice from the prospective of local citizens. This committee also provides recommendations for recreation fee proposals for two BLM districts and 5 National Forests. This role is vital and is a required element of the FLREA.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThe John Day-Snake RAC met on October 21, 2021, and February 17, 2022

Outcome CommentThe annual work plan identified multi-year issues and flexibilities that the agencies need to be responsive to emerging issues. Emphasis areas include sustainable recreation and fees, NEPA projects, management plans, wildfire risk reduction, wild horse management and other issues for the two districts and five forests.Number Of Grants Recommended0
Cost Savings*Unable to DetermineDollar Value Of Grants Recommended$0.00
Cost Savings CommentThere has been no formal exploration of any associated cost-savings associated with the John Day - Snake River RAC. However, there is immeasurable value to the land management agencies, as input by way of the representatives can serve to substitute for official surveys of public sentiment related to any number of land management issues. Similarly, the collaborative and consultative service that the RAC provides as a means of interacting with the public also serves to better inform land management agencies of sentiments associated with certain groups or members of the public.Grants Review CommentN/A

Agency Feedback Comment*Land management agency representatives routinely address the John Day - Snake River RAC on activities on their respective Districts and areas of responsibility. This includes answering questions associated with any land management practices or plans as well as keeping the RAC apprised of the progress, or lack thereof, of any recommendations made by the group--to include updates on implementation.Narrative Description*The Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service both strive to manage public lands for numerous interests. In an effort to achieve that balance, RACs serve an important role in tempering public input and formulating well-thought-out and balanced recommendations to the land management agencies. Additionally, as RAC meetings are open to the public, members of the public are able to attend, allowing for transparency, and to directly address the RAC with specific concerns. Also, the RAC model allows for self-nomination and general nomination of representatives of numerous interests which affect, and are affected by, public lands. This allows public, special interest groups and others to have an avenue to serve their respective interest while contributing to a collaborative solution which is in turn endorsed and recognized by the land management agencies.
