SNPLMA Strategic Plan

SNPLMA Strategic Plan

The Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act (SNPLMA) was signed into law in October of 1998.  Since that time, sale of Federal land has generated over $3.4 billion and funded over 1200 projects through the SNPLMA Program.

The work completed through the SNPLMA has made a significant impact on the quality of life for those who live in the State of Nevada and in the Lake Tahoe and Lake Mead areas.  SNPLMA has created a successful legacy of land acquired, projects implemented, and a healthier environment for current and future generations.

The Bureau of Land Management, the lead Federal agency in implementing the SNPLMA, has joined with state, local, and other Federal agencies to develop a unique partnership. Members of the SNPLMA Executive Committee (EC), Partners Working Group (PWG), and category subgroups review, rank, and recommend projects for funding approval by the Secretary of the Interior. These partners also work together to facilitate the sale of Federal land as directed by Congress and to allocate and manage the revenue in the public’s best interest. The SNPLMA Program partners implement and provide oversight of projects funded through the program. The partners participate to manage the program in a flexible, adaptive, collaborative, and transparent manner.

In 2010, the partners agreed to create a Strategic Plan to guide the program for the next five years. As we approach the end of the planning timeframe for the initial Strategic Plan, work has been completed on a Strategic Plan for 2015.  Click here for a copy.
