Blaine Commissioners to Draft White Clouds Monument Resolution

Benito Baeza

HAILEY, Idaho (AP) — Blaine County commissioners in central Idaho have agreed to draft a resolution describing what they’d like to see in a presidential proclamation designating a Boulder-White Clouds National Monument.

Commissioners say they want to take additional comments from the public before drafting the resolution. The Boulder-White Clouds is a 500,000 acre roadless area in east-central Idaho. Parts of those lands have been considered before for either monument or protected wilderness status. Presidents have the sole authority under the 1906 Antiquities Act to protect land under national monument status.

Presidents from both parties have used the law to designate monument status to places such as the Grand Canyon and Idaho’s own Craters of the Moon. Motorcycle riders and snowmobilers say monument status could prevent them from entering the area.
