Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument
Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan

The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument Resource Management Plan (RMP) is available for your review. It was prepared by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in consultation with the Pueblo de Cochiti, federal and state agencies, taking into account public comments received during this planning effort. The document provides a framework for the future management direction and appropriate use of the Monument and planning area, located in Sandoval County, New Mexico. It contains both land use planning decisions and implementation decisions to facilitate management of the area.

The RMP/Final EIS was developed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976. The document is mainly based on Alternative B, the agency’s preferred alternative in the Draft RMP/EIS, which was released on November 4, 2005.
