Jarbidge Resource Management Plan Revision

     The BLM is revising the 1987 resource management plan (RMP) for approximately 1.4 million acres of public land 
      in south-central Idaho to accomplish several goals:

  • respond to changes in resource conditions;
  • respond to new issues, programs and policies;
  • establish a comprehensive framework for managing public lands in the planning area 
    for the coming 15-20 years; and
  • meet terms of the 2005 stipulated settlement agreement in 
    Western Watersheds Project v. Bennett (U.S. District Court, Idaho). 

     On August 22, 2014, the proposed RMP and final environmental impact statement (EIS) were published, 
      initiating a 30-day protest period.  Protests must be received or postmarked by September 22, 2014.
