BLM Notices Availability of RMPs for Greater Sage Grouse

Posted By Mark Ellis, Friday, May 4, 2018

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) today announced the opening of the comment period on draft Resource Management Plans (RMP) and draft Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) for Greater Sage Grouse in six RMPs covering Colorado, Nevada and Northern California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming.  Since 2015 the BLM, in discussions with partners, recognized that several refinements and policy updates could help strengthen conservation efforts, while providing increased economic opportunity to local communities.  Comments on the draft RMPs and draft EISs must be submitted on or before August 2, 2018, or 15 days after the last public meeting is held, whichever is later.

 

To reach the national project website, please click here.  From this portal page you can select each of the six geographic areas covered by a specific draft RMP with its own draft EIS.  Once on the geographic area of interest, the specific draft RMP and draft EIS can be accessed through the Documents & Reports link in the left-hand margin.

 

IMA-NA will file comments in these rulemakings.
