This feature class represents anticipated, in-progress, existing and historic BLM Land Use Planning Area (LUPA) polygons within Nevada. LUPAs are areas within which the BLM will make decisions during a land use planning effort. LUPA Boundaries shift from an “in-progress” status and become Existing LUPAs when the Land Use Plan has been approved and a Record of Decision Date has been established. These LUPAs are officially “existing” and the previous plan is moved to a “historic” status.
