BLM OR Designated Right of Way Publication Polygon
Each feature class or feature dataset is in Geographic (GCS) NAD83 unless otherwise noted
ROW_DSG_PUB_POLY: This dataset represents areas where ROW granted by the BLM are not allowed (excluded), allowed with special considerations (avoidance), or generally permitted (corridor). The designations are determined through the Land Use Planning process (Resource Management Plan (RMP)). There are four possible designations: Avoidance, Exclusion, Corridor, and Open. The Avoidance designation is described as the area where ROW and other Land Use Authorizations are only allowed, if compatible with existing land designations, and management direction. The Exclusion area designation does not allow ROWs, and other Land Use Authorizations. The Corridor designation includes existing ROW corridors, as well as communication sites, and other land use authorization, plus additional land as appropriate for potential future non-conflicting development. The Open designation is remaining BLM surface jurisdiction.
This dataset is used for depicting the ROW designation areas on maps, for overlaying in GIS with other data themes, and for determining feasibility and impact of project proposals.
