Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) and Proposed Plan Amendments
The BLM and the Department of the Interior (DOI) worked closely with western governors of states with Greater sage-grouse habitat to determine whether some, all or none of the sagebrush habitat conservation plans adopted in 2015 should be amended.  A Draft EIS and Plan Amendments for BLM-managed public lands in Colorado was published on May 4, 2018, initiating a 90-day public comment period that ended on August 2, 2018.   The Management Alignment alternative in the Draft EIS was proposed to enhance cooperation and improve alignment between BLM resource management plans for conserving sage-grouse habitat and the state’s plans for managing the sage-grouse species.   This alternative does not propose to replace the 2015 plans, but instead builds on them to increase flexibility, maintain access to public resources, and promote conservation outcomes.  Nearly three years of experience with the 2015 plans has shown the BLM and its partners what is working and what is not, and how the 2015 plans can be adjusted to recognize concerns.
The BLM considered the comments received on the Draft EIS and developed a Final EIS and Proposed Plan Amendments.
