Open house meetings start June 23 on Forest Travel Management Plan

Informational sessions to also take public comment on the Nez Perce National Forest Travel Plan will begin next Tuesday. At meetings set for June and July, forest staff will present information about alternatives to be in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and answer questions.

Meetings will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. (local times) at the following dates and locations:

•June 23, Tuesday, Forest Service Grangeville Office, 104 Airport Road, Grangeville.

•June 25, Thursday, Red River Ranger District Office, 300 American River Road, Elk City.  

•June 30, Tuesday, Hells Canyon National Recreation Office, 1339 U.S. Highway 95 South, Riggins.

•July 20, Monday, Kamiah Fire Hall (EMS building), 515 Main Street, Kamiah.

•July 21, Tuesday, Idaho Department of Fish and Game, Lewiston Office, 3316 16th Street, Lewiston.

The project is commonly referred to as the Designated Routes and Areas for Motor Vehicle Use (DRAMVU). A decision on DRAMVU, by Supervisor Cheryl Probert, is planned for late summer. Her decision, documented in a Record of Decision (ROD), would designate motor vehicle use on specific roads, trails and areas on the Nez Perce side of the forest and result in a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) for use by the public.

Information is available online at http://www.fs.usda. gov/project/?project=17752 or by contacting Jennie Fischer, team leader, 983-4048.
