Mitigation Strategy for the Fourmile East SEZ

In the Solar PEIS Record of Decision (ROD), the BLM committed to establishing a solar regional mitigation strategy (SRMS) for each solar energy zone (SEZ). These regional mitigation strategies are expected to simplify and improve the mitigation process for future solar projects in SEZs.

In January 2017, the BLM released the Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Colorado Solar Energy Zones – Final Report (PDF, 26.1 MB). The SRMS final report is applicable to future solar development in other SEZs in the San Luis Valley; however, because additional cultural concerns have been identified for the Fourmile East SEZ since the Solar PEIS ROD was issued, the BLM is re-evaluating the designation of the Fourmile East area as a solar energy zone.
