Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 41 / Friday, February 29, 2008 / Notices • The RMPR will incorporate, where applicable, management decisions brought forward from existing planning documents. • The BLM will work cooperatively and collaboratively with cooperating agencies and all other interested groups, agencies, and individuals. • The BLM and cooperating agencies will jointly develop alternatives for resolution of resource management issues and management concerns. • The planning process will incorporate the New Mexico Standards for Public Land Health and Guidelines for Livestock Grazing Management. Changes in grazing management will only be considered in Unit 5. • Areas with special or unique resource values will be evaluated for potential administrative designations, including Areas of Critical Environmental Concern, or other appropriate designations. • Any free flowing river and its associated land corridor found to be eligible for inclusion in the National Wild and Scenic River System (NWSRS) will be addressed in the RMPR by developing alternatives for its suitability for inclusion in the NWSRS and interim protective management of its outstandingly remarkable values. • Wilderness Study Areas will continue to be managed under the BLM’s Interim Management Policy for Lands under Wilderness Review (IMP) until Congress either designates all or portions of the WSA as wilderness or releases the lands from further wilderness consideration. The BLM no longer designates additional WSAs through the RMP process, or manages any lands other than existing WSAs in accordance with the Wilderness IMP. Areas with wilderness characteristics, however, will be considered in the RMP as described in Appendix C of the Land Use Planning Handbook. • Forest management strategies will be consistent with the Healthy Forests Restoration Act. • Fire management strategies will be consistent with the Albuquerque District Fire Management Plan (2004 or as it may subsequently be amended). • GIS and metadata information will meet Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) standards, as required by Executive Order 12906. All other applicable BLM data standards will also be followed. • The planning process will provide for ongoing consultation with American Indian tribal governments and strategies for protecting recognized traditional uses. • Planning and management direction will focus on the relative values of VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:22 Feb 28, 2008 Jkt 214001 resources and not the combination of uses that will give the greatest economic return or economic output. • Where practicable and timely for the planning effort, the best available scientific information, research, and new technologies will be used. • The Economic Profile System (EPS) will be used as one source of demographic and economic data for the planning process. EPS data will provide baseline data and contribute to estimates of existing and projected social and economic conditions. The BLM will use an interdisciplinary approach to develop the plan in order to consider the variety of resource issues and concerns identified. Specialists with expertise in the following disciplines will be involved in the planning process: air quality, archaeology and cultural resources, cave and karst resources, energy resources, facilities development, forestry, hydrology, lands and realty, minerals and geology, outdoor recreation, paleontology, rangeland management, sociology and economics, soils, special status species, visual resources management, wildland fire ecology, wilderness resources, wildlife and fisheries.
