The Las Cruces District Office has completed the Proposed Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Prehistoric Trackways National Monument (Monument).
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) prepared the Proposed RMP/Final EIS taking into account public comments received during this planning effort. The Proposed RMP provides a framework for the future management direction and appropriate use of the Monument, located in Doña Ana County, New Mexico. The document contains both land use planning decisions and implementation decisions to guide the BLM’s management of the Monument.
This Proposed RMP and Final EIS have been developed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended. The Proposed RMP is largely based on Alternative C, the preferred alternative in the Draft RMP/EIS, which was released on July 20, 2012. The Proposed RMP/Final EIS contains the Proposed Plan, a summary of changes made between the Draft RMP/EIS and Proposed RMP/Final EIS, impacts of the Proposed Plan, documentation of the all the comments received during the public review period for the Draft RMP/EIS, and responses to the substantive comments.
