The Proposed RMP–FP amendment and Final EIS describe and analyze three action alternatives and the No Action alternative. Each includes goals, objectives, allowable uses and management actions to address management challenges and issues and reflects management direction in Presidential Proclamation 9232. Alternative A continues existing management, as reflected in decisions from the Royal Gorge Resource Area Management Plan (BLM 1996) and the Pike and San Isabel National Forests and Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands Land and Resource Management Plan (USFS 1984), as amended. Alternative B focuses on protecting monument resources, objects, and values while providing primarily non-motorized recreation activities, such as hiking and boating, in a predominantly primitive and backcountry setting. Alternative B limits future recreational infrastructure development while still allowing varied river-based and upland outdoor recreation experiences and outcomes. Alternative C focuses on a wider variety of river and upland recreation opportunities in backcountry, middle and front country settings to enhance the local economy and quality of life for residents and visitors. Alternative C includes protections for monument resources, objects, and values though emphasizes more proactive management of natural resources to address stressors and drivers, and a wider range of recreation opportunities and access as compared with management under Alternative B. Alternative D is the Proposed RMP–FP amendment and is a reasonable combination of management components from Alternatives A, B, and C presented in the Draft RMP–FP amendment and Draft EIS. The BLM and USFS developed the Proposed RMP–FP amendment consistent with DOI shared conservation and USFS ecosystem service and sustainable recreation priorities. The BCNM Draft RMP–FP amendment and Draft EIS public comment period began on October 4, 2019. The BLM and USFS held three open-house public meetings in November 2019 and two webinars in December 2019.
