In 2008, the BLM published a "Notice of Intent" to revise the resource management plans for both the BLM Cody and BLM Worland field offices. This combined effort—the Bighorn Basin Resource Management Plan Revision Project—will result in a single RMP and supporting environmental impact statement (EIS). The RMP has been developed with a full range of public participation.
As part of the planning process, the BLM invited tribal, state, and local governments, as well as other federal agencies to serve as cooperating agencies in the preparation of the RMP. After signing a memorandum of understanding with the BLM, cooperators played a key role in developing the RMP and associated EIS. A complete list of cooperating agencies on the Bighorn Basin RMP is available on the Cooperating Agencies page.
When people, communities, and governments collaborate to identify common ground, share information, and listen to each other the planning process is more effective. Community specific input and comments were solicited throughout the RMP process and they helped shape the environmental analysis and inform the decision makers.
