RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PLAN  
     
 
     
  In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the BLM Uncompahgre Field Office in Colorado is revising the BLM Uncompahgre Resource Management Plan (RMP) for over 675,000 acres of BLM-administered surface lands and 971,220 acres of federal mineral estate.

The Uncompahgre Planning Area includes lands in Delta, Gunnison, Mesa, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miguel counties in southwestern Colorado.  It does not include the Gunnison Gorge or Dominguez-Escalante national conservation areas, which are managed under separate RMPs.
  The Approved RMP will replace the Uncompahgre Basin RMP (1989) and applicable portions of the San Juan/San Miguel Planning Area RMP (1985).

An RMP details the current state of resources and guides management actions for the next twenty or so years under the BLM dual mandate of multiple use and sustained yield. Public participation during the planning process is critical for an effective plan.

 
  This ePlanning site provides a tool to assist with informing the public about current developments and opportunities for involvement.

The public comment period for the Draft RMP/Draft EIS closed on November 1, 2016.  The BLM is currently reviewing and processing all comments received and will consider substantive comments during preparation of the Proposed RMP/Final EIS.

The Approved RMP/Record of Decision is currently projected to be issued in Spring 2018.
