The Department began the second round of SFRMPs in 2013 using the Section level of the DNR Ecological Classification System for the planning unit boundaries. Because of this, some SFRMP boundaries have changed. The names of most SFRMPs will also change as revisions are completed. The first SFRMP revision to be completed was the Blufflands/Rochester Plateau SFRMP, which has kept the same name and planning boundaries. The Department is currently in the process of developing SFRMP revisions for the Northern Minnesota and Ontario Peatlands Section and the Northern Superior Uplands Section. These two new SFRMPS contain all or portions of the previous Agassiz Lowlands, Border Lakes, North 4, and North Shore Area SFRMPs. These plans are projected for completion in late 2015.
