The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) releases the Record of Decision and Approved Resource Management Plan for the Richfield Field Office. The plan, known as the Richfield Field Office Resource Management Plan, will provide future direction for managing over 2.1 million acres of public land in Sanpete, Sevier, Piute, Wayne and eastern Garfield Counties in Utah, and the mineral estate under all BLM land and the adjoining National Forests.
The purpose of the plan will be to establish guidance, objectives, policies, and management actions for public lands administered by the Richfield Field Office. The plan will be comprehensive in nature, and will resolve or address a wide variety of issues, including but not limited to:
- Access and transportation on public lands
- Off highway vehicle management
- Special management designations
- Balancing multiple use
- Cultural resources
- Fire management
- Forestry and woodland harvest
- Rangeland health
- Wild horses and burros
- Areas of critical environmental concern
- Wild and scenic rivers
- Special status species management
- Land and realty management
As part of the plan preparation, a supporting Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will also be prepared. Both the RMP and EIS will be developed concurrently with a full range of public participation. An integral component of the Richfield RMP development process is public involvement. Throughout the project, local interests and residents will have opportunities to participate and share their insights and comments.
This website is your source of information for participating in the planning process. Here you will find the latest information on the development of the RMP and EIS, including background documents, maps, meeting announcements, published bulletins, and other documents.
