"This draft resource management plan amendment and environmental impact statement has been prepared by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) with assistance from 21 cooperating agencies. It describes and analyzes four alternatives for managing approximately 741,700 acres of BLM-administered land and nearly1.35 million acres of BLM-administered subsurface federal mineral estate that may lie beneath other surface ownership. Surface estate and federal mineral estate is managed by seven BLM field offices (Grand Junction, Gunnison, San Luis Valley, Tres Rios and Uncompahgre in Colorado and Moab and Monticello in Utah), three national conservation areas (Dominguez-Escalante, Gunnison Gorge and McInnis Canyons) and Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. The analysis area spans portions of 12 counties: Chaffee, Delta, Dolores, Gunnison, Hinsdale Mesa, Montrose, Ouray, Saguache, and San Miguel in Colorado and Grand and San Juan in Utah. The alternatives present a range of management actions to achieve the goal of Gunnison Sage-Grouse conservation for BLM Colorado and Utah. Major planning issues addressed include land and realty actions, energy and minerals, recreation and travel management and livestock grazing. Alternative A is a continuation of current management (No Action Alternative); use of public lands and resources would continue to be managed under the current BLM RMPs, as amended. Alternative B manages land primarily for the benefit of GUSG and its habitat. Alternative C minimizes or compensates for impacts from resource uses and other actions to varying degrees. Alternative D represents the agency's preliminary preference for a combination of decisions to effectively achieve BLM goals and policies, meet the purpose and need, address the key planning issues, and respond to the recommendations of cooperating agencies and BLM specialists. Review Period: Comments on the Gunnison Sage-Grouse Rangewide Draft Resource Management Plan Amendment/Environmental Impact Statement will be accepted for 90 calendar days following publication of the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Notice of Availability in the Federal Register."--Abstract.
