Draft RMP/EIS Available for Public Comment
On October 5, 2018the Bureau of Land Management announced the release of the Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the San Juan Islands National Monument (Monument).  The public comment period will close on January 3, 2019.  This planning process will determine the long-term management of the San Juan Islands National Monument, which encompasses approximately 1,000 acres of BLM-administered lands in the San Juan Islands.  The Draft RMP/EIS and its appendices are available below. 

Information about public meetings associated with the public comment period can be found on the meeting page linked on the menu bar.  

The BLM has created a video, along with the public outreach materials offered below, to assist the public in commenting on the Draft Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement.

When commenting on the Draft RMP/EIS, keep in mind that the elements of the alternative management approaches presented in Chapter 2 are seperable.  In other words, the proposed--and eventually the approved--RMP could include elements from more than one alternative.  As stated on page 7 of the Draft RMP/EIS: "The Proposed RMP may be a modification of the design of Alternative B, a modification of the design of a different alternative analyzed in the Draft RMP/EIS, a new alternative from within the spectrum of alternatives considered in the Draft RMP/EIS, or an alternative analyzed in the Draft RMP/EIS as written."
