-Additional meeting added in Sierra City-
QUINCY, Calif. – October 28, 2015 – Plumas National Forest officials have added an additional meeting in support of the over-snow vehicle (OSV) designation effort currently underway for roads, trails and areas within the Plumas National Forest.
The meeting will be held on November 5 in Sierra City, CA at the Sierra City Community Hall (14 Castagna Alley (off Hwy 89)) from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
This is the fifth of 5 meetings with a focus on the initial step of the environmental planning effort, called the “Proposed Action.” People interested in the project have until November 13 to provide feedback during this phase of planning called project “scoping.”
Following the scoping phase, an interdisciplinary team will be reviewing information about the project; including feedback received from the community and will develop new alternatives as needed. After analyzing the impacts of the proposed action and other alternatives and then packaging the information into a draft environmental impact statement, a second public comment phase will be conducted in the spring of 2017. Comments received at that time will be considered in the development of the Final Environmental Impact Statement. A decision on the project will be made following the completion of a final EIS in fall of 2017.
More information, including the proposed action and opportunities for comment, is available at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=47124 or by calling the Plumas National Forest at (530) 283-2050.
