The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food is working to raise public awareness about the values of protecting critical lands such as farmland, wetlands, and other open spaces.
We pose this basic question: Do you know where the food you see in the grocery store comes from, and should consumers help protect the resources that generate that food?
Coordinated Resource Management Planning (CRMP) is a resource planning, problem-solving and management process that allows for direct participation of everyone concerned with natural resource management in a given planning area. The concept underlying CRMP is that coordinated resource management strategies result in improved resource management and minimizes conflicts among land users, landowners, governmental agencies and interest groups. Using this approach, resource problems are addressed and solved much more effectively because they are based on resource boundaries and are not constrained by individual, agency or political boundaries.
