U.S. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIORBUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT
Managing approximately 23 million surface acres of public land, BLM-Utah realizes public involvement in our management strategies is critical. Planning emphasizes a collaborative environment in which local, State, and Tribal governments, as well as the public, user groups, and industry work with the BLM to identify appropriate multiple uses of the public lands.
The land-use planning process allows for extensive public involvement and provides a blueprint of how the public land should be managed. BLM Utah’s mission is to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the public land, and land-use planning is vital to our mission.
New Plans, Plan Revisions and Plan Ammendments
Availability of BLM Utah Land Use Plans (LUPs). Many of the past published documents which constitute our planning base are physically scarce, difficult to reproduce, and somewhat inaccessible to some staff and the public. In addition, the time devoted to and cost of reproducing documents can be substantial. Therefore, for your convenience, we have developed the following ways to make these documents available to you:
Under Federal law, BLM Utah prepares land-use plans that serve as the basis for all activities occurring on BLM-managed lands.
As part of the Resource Management Plans (RMP), a supporting Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is prepared. Both the RMP and EIS are developed concurrently with a full range of public participation. Throughout the project, local interests and residents will have opportunities to participate and share their insights and comments.
