Resource Management Planning & Environmental Compliance
Current Land Use Plan
The St. George Field Office (SGFO) is responsible for land use planning on approximately 635,000 acres of public lands in southwestern Utah. The current land use plan for the SGFO is the St. George Field Office Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan, 1999 (ROD/RMP).
All internally or externally proposed actions on or affecting public lands or resources under BLM jurisdiction must be reviewed for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (unless that action is exempt). It is through this Act that the BLM, as a federal agency, is responsible for preparing documents that analyze the environmental consequences of its actions and assist in determining whether a proposed action would have a significant impact on our environment. Different levels of documentation are prepared including an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), Environmental Assessment (EA), Categorical Exclusions (CX), or Determination of NEPA Adequacy (DNA).
Information on all proposed actions analyzed in accordance with NEPA can be found on the Environmental Document Bulletin Board (ENBB). For information on how to search the ENBB click here.
