Welcome to the Billings and Pompeys Pillar National Monument RMP Website


The Billings and Pompeys Pillar National Monument Approved Resource Management Plans (RMP) and Record of Decision for the Rocky Mountain Region (ROD) are now available online. This ROD and RMP replaces the 1984 Billings RMP, as amended, and provides the Billings Field Office and Pompeys Pillar National Monument with updated frameworks in which to administer BLM public lands in South Central Montana.

The Billings Approved RMP provides a framework for the future management direction and appropriate use of the Billings Field Office planning area, covering 434,321 acres of public land and 889,497 acres of federal minerals in Big Horn (portions), Carbon, Golden Valley, Musselshell, Stillwater, Sweet Grass, Wheatland, and Yellowstone counties, Montana and 4,298 acres in Big Horn County, Wyoming. The Pompeys Pillar National Monument Approved RMP provides a framework for future management direction and appropriate use of the Pompeys Pillar National Monument, covering 51 acres of public land and federal mineral estate in Yellowstone County, Montana.  These documents contain land use planning decisions to guide the BLM’s management of the Billings Field Office planning area and Pompeys Pillar National Monument.
 
The combined Billings and Pompeys Pillar National Monument RMP was part of 15 sub-regional planning efforts conducted as part of the BLM’s National Greater Sage-Grouse Planning Strategy.  The RMPs identified conservation measures to conserve, enhance, and/or restore Greater Sage-Grouse (GRSG) habitat in response to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) March 2010 “warranted, but precluded” Endangered Species Act listing petition.  The USFWS found that the inadequacy of regulatory mechanisms was identified as a significant threat to GRSG in their finding on the petition to list the GRSG.  The RMP conservation measures were identified as the BLM’s principal regulatory mechanism.
