Resource Management Plan. Carrizo Plain National Monument

 


The Bureau of Land Management, our partners, and the Carrizo Plain Monument Advisory Committee developed a new  Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the Carrizo Plain National Monument. It was published in 2010.  This plan guides our stewardship of the monument. The RMP process offers both the BLM and the public the opportunity to participate in preparing a comprehensive, long-range vision for management of the area. 

The Monument Proclamation established the Carrizo Plain National Monument and serves as the primary vision guiding development of the RMP. The Secretary of Interior also established a Monument Advisory Committee to provide counsel and advice to the BLM regarding plan development and implementation. 
 
The BLM and our management partners developed planning criteria that served as sideboards & ground-rules in the development of plan goals & actions. These criteria are based on the monument proclamation and other management direction, and were open to public comment. The planning area map shows BLM lands within the National Monument boundary that will be managed under this RMP.
