|What is a RMP?|
|Monday, 26 November 2007 20:28|
A Resource Management Plan (RMP) is a land use plan which describes broad, multiple-use guidance for managing public land and mineral estate administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The plan is developed with public involvement and potential impacts of the plan are analyzed in an environmental impact statement (EIS) under guidelines of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1976 (NEPA).
The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA) directs the BLM to develop, maintain, and when necessary, to revise land use plans to provide for appropriate use of public land. The plan highlights goals and objectives for resource management and establishes measures needed to achieve those goals and objectives.
