Las Cruces District Office Planning

The BLM prepares comprehensive land use plans called Resource Management Plans (RMPs) to provide management decisions and actions and allowable uses on BLM public lands. An RMP revision is a comprehensive update to an existing plan. An RMP revision or a new RMP usually address an array of programs occurring on BLM public lands. This includes, for example, lands and realty, transportation and off-highway vehicle use, fire management, visual, cultural, recreational and wildlife resources and management, mineral leasing, and rangeland resource management. RMPs also provide direction for managing areas on public lands that require special protection through designated Areas of Critical Environmental Concern. The BLM may also amend an RMP because of new information or changing land use conditions. Additionally, programmatic planning documents, such as fire management plans, help to provide broad scale direction on managing BLM public lands.

The development of RMP revisions and amendments involves multiple opportunities for public, government agency, and tribal involvement. All RMPs are developed with a supporting NEPA document. Below are the RMPs for this field office as well as information on ongoing development of RMPs and opportunities for involvement.
