The CCNM RMP provides direction for managing the approximate 1000 acres of offshore rocks, small islands, exposed reefs, and pinnacles that comprise the Monument. The Monument was established by Presidential Proclamation No. 7264 on January 11, 2000, under the authority of the Antiquities Act of 1906. The Monument lies within the jurisdiction of 15 California counties and five BLM field offices, and at least 25% of the coastal portion of the mainland adjacent to the Monument is contained within the California State Parks System. Planning for the Monument officially began with a Federal Register notice on April 24, 2002 initiating scoping. The California Department of Fish and Game, the California Department of Parks and Recreation, the United States Air Force, and the Cher-Ae Heights Indian Community of the Trinidad Rancheria, a federally recognized tribe, are cooperating agencies in the development of this RMP. BLM sought public and governmental participation in the development of this RMP and will continue to pursue partnerships in the management of the Monument. Because of the unique nature of the CCNM, many governmental entities have jurisdiction over resources immediately adjacent to the monument and are integrally important to meeting the goals and objectives for the Monument, as established in the RMP.Start Signature
