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).
