Exclamation Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Extends Comment Period for Travel Plan



BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Extends Comment Period for Travel Plan

The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest has just announced an extension of the Scoping Process for the proposed Combined Travel Management Project. This project will revise the Travel Management Plans for the Mountain City, Ruby Mountains and Jarbidge Ranger Districts to accommodate increasing numbers and capabilities of off-highway vehicles (OHVs) on the Districts and to protect natural resources.

The deadline for submitting comments is now March 9, 2009.

In order to give the public a chance to submit additional comments, the Forest Service has scheduled added public meetings (see schedule below). All meetings are scheduled for 5 -7 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.

> February 23 in Elko at the Elko BLM Office

> February 24 in Wells at the Forest Service Ranger Station

> February 25 in Jackpot at the Community Recreation Center

> February 26 in Mountain City Court House

This project includes adjustments to the current forest transportation system, additions of user-created routes to that system, and the prohibition of motor vehicles off designated routes. This project will not analyze over the snow vehicle travel, such as snowmobiles. At the end of the project, the District Rangers will identify the minimum road and trail system needed for safe and efficient motorized travel and for administration, utilization, and protection of National Forest System lands.

A scoping document describing the Proposed Action and maps depicting the project are available on the Forest's website at Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest - Projects & Plans. A CD or printed version along with maps are available on request by contacting the Mountain City Ranger District Office at (775) 738-5171 or by written request to the address below.

Public involvement is encouraged and will be ongoing throughout the process. However, written scoping comments should be received by March 9, 2009. Comments received, including the names and addresses of those who comment, will be considered part of the public record on this proposal and will be available for public inspection.
