Final Spend Out of ARCO Settlement NRDP $115M Balance

by jhwygirl

James at 2nd Grade Bike Rack has a fine piece up on the ‘Draft’ Long Range Restoration Priorities and Fund Allocation Guidance Plan out of the Montana Department of Justice Natural Resource Damage Program.

It’s a great write up, so I encourage you to go read all about it there – he’s plenty of links. James points out some pretty disheartening issues, if you ask me. When I read the draft final long-range plan, and there’s a list of projects – virtually all of which have been approved, I gotta ask what kind of draft long range whatever can it be when public opinion is being solicited for a long-range plan after-the-fact of allocating just about the whole kit-and-caboodle.

  1. Thank you for the writeup and links. For the most part, the draft “Long Range Plan” was released to elicit comments about the plan itself.

    Regarding the project funds, the Governor finalised his decisions for the latest 2010 projects just before Summer 2011 (http://www.doj.mt.gov/lands/docsnrdp/2010finalrestorationworkplan.pdf). They are included in the Draft Long Range Plan Attachment C as you noticed, although the 2010 funds are not very easy to discern.

    Previous project fund info, including the 2010 projects and some associated public comments can be found at the following URL …

    Thanks again & cheers!
