Description of Planning Area
The 13.5 million acre planning area is comprised of federal state, and private lands, as well as Indian reservations within Lander, Eureka, Nye and Esmeralda Counties. The BLM does not manage lands for other federal entities, therefore; the RMP will cover a decision area of 10.5 million acres of BLM land (surface).

The BMD RMP planning process and EIS scoping period officially began on December 13, 2010 with the publication in the Federal Register of a NOTICE OF INTENT to Prepare a Resource Management Plan for the Battle Mountain District Office and Associated Environmental Impact Statement. During this scoping period, the public was invited to submit their comments to the BMD. Public involvement is an integral and important part of land use planning. Opportunities for public involvement and comments are provided throughout the planning process. The BLM uses the information from public and other sources to determine current resource conditions, changes needed in managing these resources, and desired conditions for public lands the BMD manages.
PUBLIC SCOPING AND COMMENT PERIOD ENDED ON FEBRUARY 11, 2011.
