County to appeal OHV plan

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors unanimously directed county staff to submit an appeal to the Forest Service, protesting the Plumas National Forest’s (PNF) new Travel Management Plan, at a Tuesday, Dec. 19, meeting.

Public Works Director Bob Perreault told the board multiple county committees reviewed the Forest Service’s plan, resulting in a recommendation that the board appeal the decision.

The main reason for the recommendation to appeal was the Forest Service’s lack of coordination with the county.

Perreault said the county also felt there was a lack of transparency in terms of the Forest Service’s disclosure of the impacts of the plan.

He added that topics such as public access routes across private lands, the parking limitation that forces people to park within one vehicle length of the road, and the process of identifying routes were areas of contention for the county.

Perreault concluded that the process had been very confusing to the public in general, with maps that didn’t match up from one of the proposed plan options to another.

He said for the public the entire situation made it “very difficult to understand what the final action is.”

Eastern Plumas Supervisor Terry Swofford moved to forward a final version of the letter to the Forest Service and have county staff file an appeal.

Indian Valley Supervisor Robert Meacher seconded the motion.

Butte County’s supervisors have already declared their intention to appeal the PNF decision as well.
