Planning 2.0: Improving the Way We Plan Together

BLM LogoAs part of a continuing commitment to improve their management of the nation’s public lands, the Bureau of Land Management is reviewing the way they develop and update our Resource Management Plans (RMPs).

This initiative, known as Planning 2.0, aims to increase public involvement and incorporate the most current data and technology into land use planning.  They have released proposed revisions to planning regulations, along with a preliminary economic analysis and categorical exclusion for public review and comment.  By implementing these improvements, the BLM endeavors to enhance the way that it involves the public in its planning efforts, including measures to provide earlier, easier, and more meaningful participation.

 

In a related effort, the BLM is revising its land use planning handbook that provides detailed guidance on implementing the planning processes.  The agency anticipates releasing a draft of the handbook for review later in 2016.

Together, these regulatory and handbook revisions apply lessons learned from decades of implementing best practices in resource management planning and enable the agency to effectively address emerging large-scale issues such as proliferating wildfire, rapidly expanding renewable energy demand, and conserving important wildlife habitat.  The proposed changes support the BLM’s shift to science-based, landscape-scale approaches to resource management while increasing opportunities for early engagement by state and local government, Tribes, partner agencies, stakeholders, and the public.  The changes also give the BLM the opportunity to establish a stronger geospatial foundation to its decision-making, allowing it to gather and share more accurate data with the public.

The BLM will be scheduling a public meeting and a webinar to provide an overview of the proposed regulation changes.  Information about those events will be announced on this page as arrangements are finalized.
