Due to the complexity of working with other local, State, and Federal governments the Clear Creek Management Area Proposed Resource Management Plan and Final Environmental Impact Statement (CCMA PRMP/FEIS) has taken longer to complete than originally anticipated.  The Hollister Field Office submitted the Notice of Availability (NOA) for the CCMA PRMP/FEIS for review and approval by the BLM California State Office and BLM Washington DC National Office.

BLM will announce release of the PRMP/FEIS through local newspapers and the CCMA mailing list once the NOA is published in the Federal Register.  A 30-day public protest period begins upon release the PRMP/FEIS.  More information about the public protest period and resolution process is available at the BLM Resource Management Plan Protest Resolution informational web page.

Following the 30-day public protest period BLM must resolve protests before approving any changes to the CCMA's land use decisions.  The final Record of Decision (ROD) for the CCMA PRMP/FEIS will replace the current Temporary Closure Order for the Serpentine Area of Critical Environmental Concern (Temporary Closure Map).
