SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Draft RMP/EIS addresses public lands and
resources managed by the KFO in Grand, Jackson, Summit and parts of
Larimer and Eagle counties, Colorado. These lands are currently managed
under the 1984 Kremmling RMP, as amended. The planning area includes
approximately 378,000 BLM-administered surface acres and approximately
653,450 subsurface acres of Federal mineral estate that will be subject
to this Draft RMP/EIS. Decisions in the Draft RMP/EIS will only apply
to BLM-administered public lands and federally-owned subsurface mineral
The Colorado River Valley Field Office and the KFO were originally
jointly revising their respective RMPs. Since the two field offices
border one another and share some common issues, a combined planning
effort was an efficient way to complete the first stages of the plan
revisions, such as public scoping and Wild and Scenic River studies.
However, given the complexity of the RMP revisions and in response to
cooperating agency and internal BLM comments, each field office will
issue separate Draft RMP/EISs, and the planning efforts for the two
field offices will continue as separate processes on separate
schedules.For the full notice check.. http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-09-16/html/2011-23622.htm
