In July 2014, the Eugene and Salem Districts of the BLM initiated a two-year consolidation process that will – by October 2016 – result in a single District with one District Manager and one District Leadership Team. The Districts have begun an implementation plan that will guide the consolidation process over the next couple of years. Although the districts will remain separate entities during the transition, leadership will be looking for opportunities to engage employees, streamline work processes, and reduce overhead cost prior to becoming a new district. Our offices in Salem, Eugene, and Tillamook will remain and moves to a different duty station are not anticipated. Positions that have a district role may realize increased geographic responsibility as consolidation progresses.
