RMPs are kept current by continuous maintenance to correct errors and update supporting data, by amending decisions when needed, and through periodic updates that incorporate maintenance changes and amendments. When needed, implementation plans are prepared. From time to time, RMPs may be revised (replaced with a new RMP).
Throughout the planning process, the BLM uses a collaborative approach to planning and will involve tribal, State and local governments, other Federal agencies, and interested parties to address common needs and goals. The BLM endeavors to use a multi-jurisdictional approach when there is a mix of land ownership and government authorities and there are opportunities to develop complementary decisions across jurisdictional boundaries. When BLM administered public lands make up a small part of the planning area, it is desirable for other jurisdictional interests to lead the planning effort.
Land use plans available for review and public comment periods are announced and made available on the BLM Colorado Field Office homepages as well as the BLM Colorado homepage.
The Resource Management Planning Schedule (pdf) displays what is planned during the current fiscal year (October 1 to September 30), and into the future. It is updated annually in conjunction with the BLM Director's Planning Schedule.
The Resource Management Plan Status page displays a chronology of planning actions and provides a link to planning documents that are available for viewing or downloading.
