The Approved RMP seeks to provide for the long-term conservation and protection of the ‘‘unique and important values’’ of the DominguezEscalante NCA identified in the area’s enabling legislation: The Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, Public Law 111–11 (Omnibus Act). These values include the ‘‘geological, cultural, archaeological, paleontological, natural, scientific, recreational, wilderness, wildlife, riparian, historical, educational, and scenic resources of the public lands, as well as the water resources of area streams, based on seasonally available flows, that are necessary to support aquatic, riparian, and terrestrial species and communities.’’ The Omnibus Act specified that these values be conserved and protected ‘‘for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations.’’ Furthermore, in recognition of the historic and current traditional use of the NCA for livestock grazing, the Omnibus Act specifically stated that the BLM ‘‘shall issue and administer any grazing leases or permits in the Conservation Area in accordance with the laws (including regulations) applicable to the issuance and administration of such leases and permits on other land under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management.’’ This RMP continues livestock grazing to meet land health standards in consideration of the other purposes of the NCA. Management decisions outlined in the Approved RMP apply only to BLMmanaged lands in the DominguezEscalante NCA (approximately 210,172 acres). The Approved RMP will replace management direction contained in the 1987 Grand Junction Resource Area RMP and 1989 Uncompahgre Basin RMP. The Approved RMP establishes goals, objectives, management actions and allowable uses for resources and land uses including, but not limited to: Air, soil, water, Wild and Scenic Rivers, upland and riparian vegetation, fish and wildlife, cultural and paleontological resources, visual resources, National Historic Trails, recreation, lands with wilderness characteristics, livestock grazing, forestry and realty. The BLM initiated scoping for the RMP revision in 2010 and collected information and public input via public meetings in order to develop the Draft RMP/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) released in May 2013. The BLM developed the Proposed Plan Alternative based upon the Draft VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:06 Jan 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 Preferred Alternative and public comments on the Draft RMP/EIS. The BLM published the Proposed RMP/Final EIS on July 1, 2016, and made it available for a 30-day public protest period. During the protest period for the Proposed RMP/Final EIS, the BLM received seven protests on a variety of issues. All protests were dismissed; however, the BLM made minor editorial modifications to the Approved RMP to provide further clarification of some of the decisions. The BLM regulations also require a 60-day Governor’s Consistency Review period for the Proposed RMP/Final EIS to ensure consistency with State government plans or policies. The Governor did not identify any inconsistencies with State government plans or policies. The Approved RMP includes decisions that implement components of the land use plan. These implementation decisions are displayed and numbered in the Approved RMP. Implementation decisions are generally appealable to the Interior Board of Land Appeals under 43 CFR 4.410. For example, the decisions identifying designated routes of travel are implementation decisions and are appealable under 43 CFR part 4. The route decisions are displayed as an attachment to Appendix N of the Approved RMP. Any party adversely affected by the proposed 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 state the specific route(s), as identified in Appendix N of the Approved RMP, on which the decision is being appealed.

Agency, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and 
neighboring BLM offices to develop the Approved RMP. The Approved RMP 
seeks to provide for the long-term conservation and protection of the 
``unique and important values'' of the Dominguez-Escalante NCA 
identified in the area's enabling legislation: The Omnibus Public Land 
Management Act of 2009, Public Law 111-11 (Omnibus Act). These values 
include the ``geological, cultural, archaeological, paleontological, 
natural, scientific, recreational, wilderness, wildlife, riparian, 
historical, educational, and scenic resources of the public lands, as 
well as the water resources of area streams, based on seasonally 
available flows, that are necessary to support aquatic, riparian, and 
terrestrial species and communities.'' The Omnibus Act specified that 
these values be conserved and protected ``for the benefit and enjoyment 
of present and future generations.'' Furthermore, in recognition of the 
historic and current traditional use of the NCA for livestock grazing, 
the Omnibus Act specifically stated that the BLM ``shall issue and 
administer any grazing leases or permits in the Conservation Area in 
accordance with the laws (including regulations) applicable to the 
issuance and administration of such leases and permits on other land 
under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management.'' This RMP 
continues livestock grazing to meet land health standards in 
consideration of the other purposes of the NCA.
    Management decisions outlined in the Approved RMP apply only to 
BLM-managed lands in the Dominguez-Escalante NCA (approximately 210,172 
acres). The Approved RMP will replace management direction contained in 
the 1987 Grand Junction Resource Area RMP and 1989 Uncompahgre Basin 
RMP. The Approved RMP establishes goals, objectives, management actions 
and allowable uses for resources and land uses including, but not 
limited to: Air, soil, water, Wild and Scenic Rivers, upland and 
riparian vegetation, fish and wildlife, cultural and paleontological 
resources, visual resources, National Historic Trails, recreation, 
lands with wilderness characteristics, livestock grazing, forestry and 
realty.
    The BLM initiated scoping for the RMP revision in 2010 and 
collected information and public input via public meetings in order to 
develop the Draft RMP/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) released in 
May 2013. The BLM developed the Proposed Plan Alternative based upon 
the Draft Preferred Alternative and public comments on the Draft RMP/
EIS.
    The BLM published the Proposed RMP/Final EIS on July 1, 2016, and 
made it available for a 30-day public protest period. During the 
protest period for the Proposed RMP/Final EIS, the BLM received seven 
protests on a variety of issues. All protests were dismissed; however, 
the BLM made minor editorial modifications to the Approved RMP to 
provide further clarification of some of the decisions.
    The BLM regulations also require a 60-day Governor's Consistency 
Review period for the Proposed RMP/Final EIS to ensure consistency with 
State government plans or policies. The Governor did not identify any 
inconsistencies with State government plans or policies.
    The Approved RMP includes decisions that implement components of 
the land use plan. These implementation decisions are displayed and 
numbered in the Approved RMP. Implementation decisions are generally 
appealable to the Interior Board of Land Appeals under 43 CFR 4.410.
    For example, the decisions identifying designated routes of travel 
are implementation decisions and are appealable under 43 CFR part 4. 
The route decisions are displayed as an attachment to Appendix N of the 
Approved RMP. Any party adversely affected by the proposed 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 state the specific route(s), as identified in Appendix N of the 
Approved RMP, on which the decision is being appealed. The appeal must 
be filed with the NCA Manager at the above listed address. Please 
consult the appropriate regulations (43 CFR, part 4, subpart E) for 
further appeal requirements.
