The Las Cruces District Office (LCDO) has released the Record of Decision (ROD)/Resource Management Plan Amendment(RMPA) for McGregor Range in southern Otero County, New Mexico.
The ROD approves the RMPA which addresses the management of withdrawn public land within McGregor Range. It sets forth the management objectives and land-use decisions for managing resources and resource uses on the withdrawn public lands.
Now that the Record of Decision has been issued, the BLM will begin implementing the RMPA. The Las Cruces District Office plans to use the RMPA as the framework for collaborative management of public land and its resources on McGregor Range in Otero County, New Mexico. Subsequent implementation decisions will require site-specific planning and additional analysis in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969.
