What is the State Resource Management Plan?
The State Resource Management Plan is the result of a year-long collaborative effort between PLPCO, the Commission for the Stewardship of Public Lands, State natural resource agencies, and each county in Utah.
The preparation of the State RMP was preceded by the completion of 29 unique County Resource Management Plans, a first-of-its-kind effort not only in Utah, but nationwide.
Without the guidance, data collection, and trailblazing efforts of each County and Association of County Governments, the State RMP would not exist. While creating their RMPs, each county held public hearings and open houses to gather comments prior to formally adopting their County RMP into their General Land Use Plans. The counties are currently using their plans to coordinate management actions with the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service.
