BLM Eastern States Office Makes Ready for Move to Two New Locations


CORRECTION:  Relocation of State Director's office and establishment of  new Cadastral Survey and Land Records Center now expected to take place in June 2014.


SPRINGFIELD, Va.—The Bureau of Land Management Eastern States (BLM ES) currently located in Springfield, Va will relocate to two addresses in the District of Columbia. The move is scheduled for March 2014.  

 The Eastern States Director’s Office, established at 7450 Boston Blvd, Springfield, Va. since 1992, will move to 20 M Street SE, Washington, DC. Concurrent with this move, the BLM ES will open a new Cadastral Survey and Land Records Center at 90 K Street NE, Washington, DC. Both locations will have a Public Information Desk and will provide access to records and services. 

The ES Office will be closed to the public for approximately one week during the physical move. During this time, public records will not be available for review. More information detailing access to records and services at the new locations will be available as the move date is confirmed. While requests for copies of documents will be filled as quickly as possible, the public should allow ten working days for response following the date of the move.  
The BLM ES office will be closed during this relocation, however, Field Offices in Milwaukee, Wi. and Jackson, Ms., and the Field Station in Lorton, Va. will remain open during normal business hours. Additionally, the BLM ES website,, will remain operational. However, the General Land Office automation website,, will not be available while its servers are off-line for moving to the new location.

The current BLM ES office location is being vacated due to reductions in budget, and the General Service Administration requirement that Federal offices inhabit Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings. Relocating to 90 K Street NE and 20 M Street SE will enable the BLM to meet these objectives and maximize efficiencies in the public’s best interests.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
