SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Nevada California Greater Sage-Grouse
Bi-State Distinct Population Segment Land Use Plan will amend the
Carson City Field Office Consolidated Resource Management Plan (RMP)
(2001) and the Tonopah Field Office RMP (1997). The LUPA and associated
environmental impact statement (EIS) were developed using a collaborative planning
process. The United States Forest Service (USFS) was the lead agency
for preparing the EIS and LUPA. The BLM was a cooperating agency. The
LUPA encompasses approximately 280,000 acres of public land
administered by the BLM Nevada, located in Carson City, Douglas,
Esmeralda, Lyon, and Mineral counties in Nevada and Alpine County,
California. The decision area does not include private lands, State
lands, tribal lands, or Federal lands not administered by the BLM. The
LUPA/ROD will add goals, objectives, action, and best management
practices specifically designed to conserve, enhance, and restore
habitats to provide for the long-term viability of the Greater Sage-
Grouse Bi-State Distinct Population Segment (BSSG). The LUPA provides
direction at the land-use-plan level to include regulatory mechanisms
for the management and conservation of BSSG habitats within the BLM
Carson City and Battle Mountain Districts to support the BSSG
population management objectives within the States of Nevada and
California.
