Document Description
The Draft Cotoni-Coast Dairies California Coastal National Monument Resource Management Plan Amendment (RMPA) and Environmental Assessment (EA)was prepared by the BLM in consultation with various government agencies and organizations, considering public comments received during public scoping efforts. The Draft RMPA/EA specifies goals and objectives for natural and cultural resource protection. The draft alternatives also identify a range of allowable uses for recreation, livestock grazing, and vegetation management actions, including project design features that would be applied to protect resources. The decisions resulting from this planning effort would affect approximately 5,843 acres of Federal lands (surface-only) managed by the CCFO in Santa Cruz County. The Draft RMPA and EA also describes and analyzes implementation-level decisions regarding development of public parking facilities and recreational trails for visitor use and enjoyment on the north coast of Santa Cruz County. Please note, the Draft RMPA/EA evaluates three alternatives, but the BLM has not selected a preferred alternative at this time. More information about this planning effort is available online.
