Land Use Plans (LUPs) and planning decisions are the basis for every action the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) takes and serve as its primary tool to disclose information about BLM’s land and resource management programs. In addition, the planning process provides the opportunity for public involvement in managing those resources.
BLM has been preparing land use plans since the 1960s. Although some of the BLM’s plans are current, others date as far back as the mid-1970s. Most LUPs lie in the mid-range category of "aging" plans that are in need of updating to reflect current conditions and statutory requirements.
New Planning Initiatives. As you may know, many of the BLM’s older land use plans (LUPs) need updating to address the growth of outdoor recreational activities, the need for land tenure adjustments, new energy demands, and other important issues familiar to those who live and work in Utah. For more information on these specific RMPs, contact the Field Office on the list to the right.
