Opportunity for Public Comment
USDA Forest Service
Plumas National Forest
Beckwourth Ranger District
Plumas County, California
The District is offering an Opportunity for Public Comment on an updated scoping packet for the Jackson Project Environmental Assessment. This project will use the Healthy Forest Restoration Act planning authority and will therefore be subject to the objection procedures at 36 CFR 218, in lieu of the appeal procedure at 36 CFR 215. The District previously scoped this project in February, 2009. The updated scoping packet is now available, outlining the three action alternatives, including the proposed action (Alternative 1), a collaborative alternative (Alternative 3) and a non-commercial alternative (Alternative 4) to be analyzed in detail.
The project area covers 19,986 acres. The project area is located north and west of Blairsden and Mabie and east of Cromberg. It is within all or parts of T22N, R12E; T22N, R13E; T23N, R12E; and T23N, R13E. The project area is within the Penman Peak Management Area #32.
The primary project objectives would be to reduce fuel loading surrounding "At-risk Communities, modify potential fire behavior and improve forest health. There are two distinct areas where fuels would be reduced. The first area is in the wildland urban interface (WUI) along Highway 70/89 between the towns of Cromberg and Mabie. In this area, the Forest would construct approximately 2,300 acres of Defensible Fuel Profile Zone (DFPZ) within the WUI. The second area is located along Penman Peak to Grizzly Ridge. In this area the Forest would construct approximately 1,150 acres of DFPZ.
Other project objectives include improving growing conditions in an aspen stand; improving forest transportation routes and eliminating resource damage; and contributing to the economic stability of local rural communities.
The activities include the use of mechanical thinning with ground-based logging systems, mastication, grapple-piling, hand-thinning and underburning to construct the DFPZs. DFPZ construction would involve post-harvest mastication, grapple-piling and/or hand-thinning, with follow-up underburning and pile-burning if needed to meet fuels objectives. Aspen stand improvement would utilize mechanical thinning with ground-based logging systems. Road construction, reconstruction, relocation and decommissioning would involve the use of heavy equipment. The road related treatments vary by alternative and are outlined in the scoping packet.
COMMENT CONTENT: Our desire is to receive comments or other expressions of interest on the merits of the action alternatives, as well as, comments that address errors, misinformation, or information that has been omitted. Questions and comments regarding this proposal are an integral part of this process. To assist the Forest Service, in identifying and considering issues and concerns regarding the action alternatives, comments should be as specific as possible.
OBJECTION PERIOD PROCESS: Instead of an appeal period, there will be an objection process before the final decision is made and after the Environmental Assessment is mailed (36 CFR 218, Subpart A). In order to obtain eligibility to file an objection on this project, specific written comments are being requested during this public comment period as described in 36 CFR 218.7 (a). Individual members of organizations must have submitted their own comments to meet the requirements of eligibility as an individual, objections received on behalf of an organization are considered as those of the organization only. Names and addresses of those who comment and/or file objections will become part of the public record. For more information on how this objection process works and the requirements, contact the Team Leader or read the regulations under 36 CFR 218 Subpart A on the National Forest Service web site at http://www.fs.fed.us/emc/applit/includes/36CFR218_final_rule_20080917.pdf.
DATES: Although comments will be accepted throughout any phase of this project, in order to be eligible to file an Objection on this project, comments must be received within 30 days of the date of publication in the newspaper of record (Feather River Bulletin). The Environmental Assessment is expected to be available for review and comment in January 2011 and the Decision in spring 2011.
ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Forest Supervisor, Alice Carlton, c/o Sabrina Stadler Beckwourth Ranger District, PO Box 7, Blairsden, CA 96103. Comments may be submitted by FAX (530-836-0493) or by hand-delivery to the Beckwourth Ranger District Office, during normal business hours (Monday-Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm). Electronic objections, in acceptable plain text (.txt), rich text (.rtf) or Word (.doc)] formats, may be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org with Subject: Jackson Project.
