Real Estate Management Plan


The Real Estate Management Plan, adopted through a Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) Record of Decision in 2005, provided policy, direction, and guidance in the selection and management of real estate development on Montana’s trust lands.  The Plan also established guidelines for DNRC reporting in adherence to the Plan.  The FEIS Record of Decision as well as well as the required reports are linked on this page.
