This Partial Record of Decision documents approval of the protested portions of the Safford District Resource Management Plan.

In developing resource management plans for public lands over which it has management responsibilities, the Bureau of Land Management in Arizona began considering wild and scenic river classifications as early as 1985.

This Resource Management Plan/Final Environmental Impact Statement has been prepared to guide management of 1,400,000 acres of public land in the Safford District (southeastern Arizona) for approximately the next 15 years. The decisions in the approved Resource Management Plan/Record of Decision will determine which use or combination of uses will be emphasized in the District.

The visual resource inventory process provides BLM managers with a means for determining visual values. The inventory consists of a scenic quality evaluation, sensitivity level analysis, and a delineation of distance zones.
