What's New
The BLM is pleased to announce that the Records of Decision (RODs) and Approved Resource Management Plans (RMPs) for the four Eastern Interior planning subunits are now available on the Documents & Reports Page. The BLM’s decision is to adopt Alternative E from the Proposed RMP/Final Environmental Impact Statement (PRMP/FEIS) with minor modifications, clarifications, and corrections. The BLM prepared the PRMP/FEIS in consultation with cooperating agencies, taking into account public comments received during this planning effort. The Federal Register published a Notice of Availability for the Draanjik ROD/RMP, Fortymile ROD/RMP, Steese ROD/RMP, and White Mountains ROD/RMP on January 6, 2017. 
 
 
 
 

The four RODs/RMPs provide future direction for 6.5 million acres of public land including the White Mountains National Recreation Area, the Steese National Conservation Area, and the Fortymile area. The White Mountains ROD/RMP replaces the 1986 White Mountains National Recreation Area RMP and the Steese ROD/RMP replaces the 1986 Steese National Conservation Area RMP. The Fortymile ROD/RMP replaces the 1980 Fortymile Management Framework Plan and includes management direction for scattered BLM lands along the highway system not previously covered by a land use plan. The Draanjik ROD/RMP provides management direction for 2.36 million acres not previously covered by a land use plan in the Draanjik (upper Black River) region.
