Park Planning

Scotts Bluff National Monument has a number of plans either in the process of being written, approved or in place. Park planning is a decision-making process. From General Management Plans to exhibit plans, the planning process includes research, internal scoping, public scoping and lots of rewriting. A plan may require an Environmental Impact Statement (NEPA) or other documents.

Not all of Scotts Bluff NM plans are available electronically. Below are some of the plans that have already gone through the process and any that are still being worked on.
