Land Use Planning

The BLM develops comprehensive land use plans to guide management decisions and actions on public lands.  BLM land use plans developed before 1985 were called management framework plans (MFPs).  Plans adopted since 1985 are known as resource management plans (RMPs).

These plans address the full range of activities that occur on public lands, including off-highway vehicle (OHV) use, wildland fire management, wildlife management, mineral development, and livestock grazing. 

RMPs/MFPs also direct management of areas on public lands that require special protection, such as areas of critical environmental concern (ACECs), research natural areas (RNAs), and potential additions to the National Wild and Scenic River (WSR) System. 

Planning and environmental documents are 
published online in the BLM NEPA Register.
