Rocky Mountain Region National Greater Sage-Grouse Planning Strategy
For the purposes of this planning effort, the Rocky Mountain Region is divided into four sub-regions: Montana/Dakotas; Wyoming; Northwest Colorado; and Utah. Each sub-region will undertake an EIS covering its territory. Each sub-region-specific EIS will have its own strategy to address sagebrush issues and will address the impacts of amending all pertinent RMPs with that guidance. Only RMPs that cover planning areas containing sagebrush habitat will be included for amendment. The Record of Decision (ROD), which comes at the end of the EIS process, may amend the RMPs to include the new management direction.
Northwest Colorado Sub Region
The Northwest Colorado Sub-region encompasses the BLM Colorado River Valley, Grand Junction, Kremmling, Little Snake and White River Field Offices in the Northwest Colorado District, and the Routt National Forest.
The EIS process is guided by NEPA. As with all EISs, the NEPA process was kicked off with the publication of a Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register. You can view the NOI on this site in the Documents and Reports page in the left navigation column.
