Notice of Availability of the Record of Decision for the Coeur
d'Alene Resource Management Plan (RMP)/Environmental Impact Statement

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Department of the Interior.

ACTION: Notice of Availability of Record of Decision (ROD).


SUMMARY: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act
(NEPA), the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), and BLM

d'Alene Field Office located in Idaho. The Idaho State Director signed
the ROD on June 29, 2007, and it is effective as of that date.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the Coeur d'Alene ROD/RMP are available upon
request from the Coeur d'Alene Field Office, Bureau of Land Management,
ATTN: RMP, 3815 Schreiber Way, Coeur d'Alene, ID 83815, or via the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coeur d'Alene RMP was developed with
broad public participation through a three year collaborative planning
process. This RMP addresses management on approximately 97,900 acres of
public land in the planning area. The Coeur d'Alene RMP is designed to
achieve or maintain desired future conditions developed through the
planning process. It includes a series of management actions to meet
the desired resource conditions for forest, upland, and riparian
vegetation; wildlife habitats; cultural and visual resources; and
recreation. The approved Coeur d'Alene RMP is essentially the same as
Alternative D in the Proposed RMP/Final Environmental Impact Statement
(PRMP/FEIS), published in October 2006.
    The BLM received two protests to the PRMP/FEIS which the Director
of BLM resolved without requiring significant changes to proposed
decisions in the PRMP/FEIS. No inconsistencies with State or local
plans, policies, or programs were identified during the Governor's
consistency review of the PRMP/FEIS. Thus, as a result of the lack of
substantive comments in the protest and consistency review stages, only
minor editorial modifications were made in preparing the ROD/RMP. These
modifications corrected errors that were noted during review of the
PRMP/FEIS and provide further clarification for some of the decisions.
    The RMP includes decisions identifying designated routes of travel
for motorized vehicles, which are implementation level decisions and
are therefore appealable under 43 CFR Part 4. These decisions (route
identifications) are displayed on travel management maps in the ROD/
RMP. Any party adversely affected by these route identifications may
appeal within 30 days of publication of this Notice of Availability,
pursuant to 43 CFR part 4, subpart E. The appeal should identify the
specific route(s) by township, range, and section on which the decision
is being appealed. Please consult the appropriate regulations (43 CFR
part 4, subpart E) for further appeal requirements. The appeal must be
filed with the Field Manager of the Coeur d'Alene Field Office at the
above listed address.
    Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or
other personal identifying information in your appeal, you should be
aware that your entire appeal--including your personal identifying
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can
ask us in your appeal to withhold your personal identifying information
from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Thomas H. Dyer,
Bureau of Land Management, Idaho State Director.
