This comments matrix, published in 2005, provides a summary of public comments made in 2005 regarding the proposed return of land to the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation. These comments were recorded from transcripts of three public meetings held in Bismarck, North Dakota (ND) on May 24; in Dickinson, ND on May 25; and in Williston, ND on May 26. The matrix also includes comments received outside these meetings via email and letter. The land return, based on the Mineral Restoration Act of 1984 (Public Law 98-602), proposed to return a portion of the land taken for the Garrison Dam project to the Three Affiliated Tribes. This document can also be found as part of “Draft Effects Report: Potential Transfer of Garrison Project Lands Within the Fort Berthold Reservation Boundaries, Pursuant to the Fort Berthold Mineral Restoration Act.”
