The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) has released four new draft documents for public comment as part of their ongoing process to revise the forest plans for the Inyo, Sierra, and Sequoia National Forests. The documents include the Scoping Letter, the Notice of Intent, the Detail of Proposed Action, and the Location Map. The documents will be eligible for public comment for 30 days following publication in the Federal Register.
The three forests are considered “early adopter” forests, and are among the first to have plan updates using the 2012 version of the National Forest Land Management Planning Rule. The forests overlap with several RCRC member counties, and the plans will impact everything from forest restoration, to recreational use.
The four documents, as well as detailed information on filing comments and a schedule of public meetings can be accessed here.
