Reviews and recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

Recommendation:
Fund
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Fund under 9705900. Project request is revised to $1,756,310 due to reduction in acquisition costs of $650,000.
Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This proposal for land acquisition to mitigate wildlife losses aptly describes the land to be acquired and justifies the acquisition. The hay production portion of the proposal should be viewed cautiously, as it may involve conflicting goals. For instance, is water from the stream to be used to irrigate hay? The restoration and management activities may be more intensive and active than is required. The ranch to be acquired is tied to BLM land and State lands; thus, management should be coordinated.
