Umpqua National Forest Seeks Comments on Travel Management Plan EA

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Umpqua National Forest -- located in southwestern Oregon - is seeking public comment on its recently released Travel Management Plan Environmental Assessment (EA). The Forest Service (FS) is asking for your input during a 30-day public review and comment period, which will end on April 14, 2010.

The EA includes a no action alternative and three action alternatives for designating routes and areas for motor vehicle use on the Umpqua National Forest. Due to their large size, the maps for this project, and the EA, are located on the Forest's website at The 16 Motor-Vehicle-Use maps associated with the document will be on display in a conference room at the Umpqua National Forest headquarters, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The address is 2900 NW Stewart Parkway in Roseburg. Additional hardcopies of the document and maps are available for review at all Ranger District offices on the Forest and at public libraries in Roseburg, Canyonville and Cottage Grove.

Public comments are invited and should be as specific as possible. Please include your name, address, telephone number and organization represented (if applicable), and specific facts or comments with supporting reasons that the Responsible Official should consider in reaching a decision.

Send written comments to:
Clifford J. Dils, Forest Supervisor

2900 NW Stewart Parkway
Roseburg, OR 97471

Please put "Travel Plan EA Comments" in the subject line of e-mail comments. Acceptable formats are email message, MS Word (.doc), plain text (.txt), or rich text format (.rtf). Comments should include your name and address. Comment deadline is April 14, 2010.

I've been woking on it. From what I've read so far, Class II gets NOTHING. It doesn't matter what alternative is picked. Class II will be getting the shaft.

There will be more to come on this. We won't be laying down.

I was talking to them in Nov. The only thing on the books is Noonday, and that will stay, but nothing new at this time. Possible site specifiic at a later date.

Alan, will you post a set of talking points so that everyone can send in a comment. As the land use contact for that area, you can give us the most helpful info and then we can all be on the same page. The last thing we need again is for someone to write in opposing viewpoints that sabotage all the efforts you have put into working with your local forest.

Sorry for the late reply. I know they have recieved comments from the 3 local clubs, and the Deschutes county 4 wheelers. Thank you
