FS announces Dixie-Comstock project, Sept. 25 meeting

The interested public’s first look at a plan for work in a 29,850 acre area near Dixie was announced by the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests in a letter dated Sept. 14, and will be the subject of a meeting scheduled for 1 p.m. Sept. 25 at the Dixie Community Center.

“The preliminary plans drafted by our fire managers involve treating rather broad areas in and around Dixie, Comstock and Dixie Work Center,” Red River district ranger Terry Nevius wrote in the letter. “We are still early in the planning phase and are looking for critical feedback that would help shape the proposed actions in a way that would maximize their benefits and minimize any negative impacts.”

The project area includes several Salmon River tributaries: Crooked Creek, Jersey Creek, Blowout Creek, Rhett Creek and Mallard Creek. Activities are proposed in nearby roadless areas.

Contact Jennie Fischer,, 208-983-4048, for questions or to receive more information about the project in the future.
