“We would like to thank the City of Monte Vista and Rio Grande County for their support during the planning and construction of the new building,” said Field Manager Andrew Archuleta. “The community has been especially welcoming and we look forward to building on those relationships as we serve the San Luis Valley from our new office.”
The Grand Opening kicks off at 3 p.m. with light refreshments, opening remarks and tours of the new office. The public is encouraged to help the BLM celebrate moving into their new location and tour the facility.
The new building consolidates three offices into one, reducing the overall footprint of the office and improving the efficiency of operations. Consolidating the offices improves customer service by providing a “one-stop-shop” for products such as maps, permits and information about BLM-managed public lands.
The BLM San Luis Valley Field Office manages slightly more than 500,000 acres of your public lands in Colorado’s Rio Grande Basin. The landscape includes eight Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, four Special Recreation Management Areas, more than 400 miles of designated routes and countless opportunities to enjoy your public lands.
