Resource Management Plan for the Southern Diablo Mountain Range and Central Coast of California
The Bureau of Land Management has approved the Record of Decision (ROD) implementing the Central Coast Field Office’s Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the Southern Diablo Mountain Range and Central Coast of California. The plan provides management guidance for use and protection of the resources on approximately 274,000 acres of public lands in Alameda, Contra Costa, Monterey, San Benito, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz counties, and portions of Fresno, Merced, Stanislaus, and San Joaquin counties administered by the BLM Hollister Field Office.
The approved RMP was developed through a collaborative planning process and reflects public involvement and review of the Proposed RMP and Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that was released in June 2006. The BLM determined that the Preferred Alternative, as described in the Proposed RMP and Final EIS, with a few minor changes identified in the ROD, best meets the purpose and need for the project.
The Central Coast Field Office would like to thank all the participants in the land use planning process for supporting the health, diversity, and sustainability of BLM public lands for current and future generations.
