Roan Plateau Supplemental EIS

On January 25, 2013, BLM announced it would begin a supplemental environmental impact statement for the Roan Plateau Resource Management Plan Amendment to address concerns raised in the June 2012 District Court decision.

This announcement initiated a public scoping period in which the public had the opportunity to identify issues and comment on the planning criteria that will be used. This scoping period ran through March 30, 2013. BLM received close to 24,000 comment submissions. We are currently reviewing those comments and beginning the process of developing alternatives. The next opportunity for public involvement will occur when the draft SEIS is released for review, currently scheduled for Dec. 2014.

The following links may be useful to understanding the SEIS background. (The links in the box to the right are related to the Record of Decsion and Final EIS from the initial Roan Plateau planning effort that was challenged in court.)
