Planning Process

BLM's planning process involved 9 steps as shown below:

  1. Identify issues, concerns, and opportunities
  2. Develop planning criteria
  3. Collect inventory data and information
  4. Analyze the management situation
  5. Formulate alternatives
  6. Estimate effects of alternatives
  7. Select the preferred alternative (and publish Draft RMP/EIS)
  8. Select the Resource Management Plan
  8a. Publish Proposed RMP/Final EIS
  8b. Respond to any protests and publish RMP/Record of Decision
  9. Implement, monitor, and evaluate the RMP

Publication of this document constitutes completion of Step 8b. Public involvement occurred at several steps in the process.

The planning process is designed to help the BLM identify the uses of BLM administered lands desired by the public and consider those uses to the extent consistent with the laws established by Congress and the policies of the executive branch of the Federal government regarding management of those lands.

Where BLM manages only the subsurface mineral estate, the plan and EIS address only the management of BLM administered minerals.
