Blaine County will Support White Cloud Monument Creation

Benito Baeza

KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — Blaine County commissioners in central Idaho plan to finalize a resolution supporting a central Idaho national monument by Tuesday. The Idaho Mountain Express reports that commissioners set that date so Commission Chair Larry Schoen can hand deliver the resolution backing a Boulder-White Clouds National Monument in person when he visits Washington, D.C., for a conference in early March. An effort to create three wilderness areas in the region while also releasing other lands from wilderness study areas have so far failed, prompting conservation groups to lobby the Obama administration to establish a national monument. Most of the proposed 571,000-acre monument would be in Custer County. Commissioners there oppose creating a monument, as do commissioners in nearby Lemhi County.
