KINGMAN, Ariz. — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comment on a proposed project that could provide improved electric and broadband communication services to Grand Canyon West (GCW).

The Environmental Assessment analyzes potential environmental impacts resulting from the proposed project.

The public comment period is for 30 days, starting Oct. 25 and ending Nov. 24.
