Chester Progressive legal notices for the week of 7/4/2014Opportunity to Comment on the TCRCD Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project
The Almanor Ranger District of the Lassen National Forest is initiating scoping for the TCRCD Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project. Information and maps detailing the proposal are available for review at the Almanor Ranger District Office.
The Lassen National Forest, Almanor Ranger District, proposes to allocate Forest Service appropriated funds in support of a portion of the proposed Tramway Road/A-Line Road/F-Line/Road 90A Shaded Fuel Break which will be implemented by the Tehama County Resource Conservation District (TCRCD) in private lands in Tehama County. Federal funding would be transferred from USFS to TCRCD via a Cooperative Agreement enabled by the Wyden Amendment, and USFS involvement in this project would be limited to authorizing expenditure of this funding. The portion of the project proposed for USFS funding is road-side fuels reduction activities along approximately 12 miles of roadway between the Shasta County line and State Route 36E. Fuels reduction is needed on these private lands to decrease risk of high intensity wild land fire should an uncontrolled fire occur and to complement the planned and implemented fuels reduction work in adjacent National Forest System lands. The purpose of this project is to protect communities from wildfires originating on adjacent timberlands. Communities that would benefit from the proposed project include Mineral, Manton, and Lassen Lodge.
The requirements of 36 CFR 218 will not apply to the TCRCD Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project because it is limited to authorizing the expenditure of funds and will not include any activities implementing the Lassen National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan in National Forest System lands. This public scoping period will be the only opportunity to provide comment on this proposed project.
Comments, written or oral, concerning this action will be accepted for 15 calendar days following publication of this notice and may be submitted to: Kathleen Nelson, District Ranger, Almanor Ranger District, 900 Highway 36 East, Chester, California, 96020-0767, 530-258-2141, FAX 530-258-5194 during normal business hours. The Almanor Ranger District business hours are from 8am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday.
Electronic comments, in acceptable plain text (.txt), rich text (.rtf), or Word (.doc) formats, may be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org with Subject: TCRCD Fuels.
A decision regarding this proposal is expected in August 2014. Thank you for your interest and participation in the environmental analysis process. For more information on the project, please contact Jennifer Hensel, Fuels Planner, by phone at 530-258-2141.
