In February 2002, the BLM published a "Notice of Intent" to revise the Great Divide Resource Management Plan (RMP) and rename it as the Rawlins RMP. As part of the planning process, a supporting environmental impact statement (EIS) was prepared. Both the RMP and EIS were developed concurrently with a full range of public participation.

The Rawlins RMP was approved and record of decision signed in December 2008. The RMP provides direction for the management of 3.5 million acres of BLM-administered public land and 4.5 million acres of BLM-administered federal mineral estate in Albany, Carbon, Laramie, and Sweetwater counties in southwestern Wyoming.

The RMP establishes guidance, objectives, policies and management actions for public lands administered by the Rawlins Field Office. The plan is comprehensive and resolves or addresses a wide variety of issues, including but not limited to:

  • Development of Energy Resources and Minerals Related Issues
  • Special Management Designations
  • Resource Accessibility
  • Wildland/Urban Interface
  • Special Status Species Management
  • Air and Water Quality
  • Vegetation Management
  • Recreation, Cultural Resources, and Paleontological Resources Management
  • Other Issues
