Plan Documents and Milestones
In March 2014, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), with the assistance of Oregon Consensus, convened a series of public outreach sessions to connect with the public on BLM's planning process to revise its Resource Management Plans (RMPs) for Western Oregon. The goals of the public outreach sessions were to build public awareness about BLM's planning process and provide an opportunity for sharing information during the Public Comment period. This report summarizes the outreach sessions along with valuable input received from the public.
The Planning Criteria provides an in-depth look at guidance, policy, analytical methodology and preliminary alternatives. This document is a look at how the BLM will be analyzing alternatives and moving towards land management plans for western Oregon. A few pieces of the Planning Criteria will appear in the Draft Resource Management Plan/Draft Environmental Impact Statement, but the Planning Criteria document just sets the stage for developing the Draft Resource Management Plan/Draft Environmental Impact Statement.
After the draft resource management plan is published later in the planning process, we will explore, with the help of public input, which approach we should take to managing these important resources. If you don't hear an issue you care about discussed here, remember that many additional and important issues will be addressed in the draft plan. The public comment period closed on March 31, 2014.
