BLM Colorado River Valley Fied Office Draft Resource Management Plan Released

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has released the Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Colorado River Valley (formerly Glenwood Springs) Field Office for a 90-day public comment period.

The Colorado River Valley Draft RMP/EIS is now a separate document from the Kremmling Draft RMP/EIS. The Colorado River Valley RMP/EIS addresses 504,910 acres of BLM lands and underlying federal mineral estate across five Colorado counties: Eagle, Garfield, Mesa, Pitkin, and Routt, with a very small portion of the planning area in Rio Blanco County. There are 73,602 acres of the CRVFO planning area managed by the BLM that is covered under the separate Roan Plateau RMP Amendment. The Roan Plateau is not covered under the Colorado River Valley RMP/EIS, except for Wild and Scenic River decisions.

To learn more about the Colorado River Valley Field Office Draft RMP/EIS, or obtain a copy of the plan, visit our website at, attend a public meeting, or contact John Russell, RMP Project Manager, at the Colorado River Valley Field Office, phone: (970) 876-9000, or e-mail: [email protected].

The BLM encourages the public to provide information and comments pertaining to the Draft RMP/EIS. We are particularly interested in feedback concerning the elements of the draft alternatives, the adequacy and accuracy of the analysis of their respective management actions, and any new information that would help the BLM as it develops the plan. In developing the Proposed RMP/Final EIS, which is the next phase of the planning process, the decision maker may select various management actions from each of the alternatives analyzed in the Draft RMP/EIS for the purpose of creating a management strategy that best meets the needs of the resources and values in this area under the BLM multiple use and sustained yield mandate.

Comments may be submitted on-line at,
or by e-mail at [email protected], or by U.S. mail to RMP Comments, Bureau of Land Management, Colorado River Valley Field Office, 2300 River Frontage Road, Silt, CO 81652. The BLM can best utilize your comments and resource information submissions if received by Dec. 15, 2011.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
