Inyo National Forest announces open houses for forest plan revision
Meeting in Mammoth on May 29, Bishop on May 20
The Inyo National Forest announced this past week a series of planned meetings to continue dialogue and receive input from the public and interested stakeholders for its forest plan revision.
This follows multiple meetings in March and April to launch the forest plan revision process. As part of the current assessment phase, the Forest Service has posted a series of “topic papers” to its website for review.
Input can be provided through the website, by hardcopy, or by email. Topic papers are available for public review and feedback through June 30.
“I look forward to meeting and discussing forest management with those who care about the Inyo National Forest,” said Ed Armenta, forest supervisor.
“These conversations are important for us to understand your interests as we proceed with Forest Plan Revision.”
The Forest’s Land and Resource Management Plan was completed in 1988.
While parts of the plan remain relevant, some elements need to be updated to meet changing demands and to incorporate new information.
These meetings will build on conversations from earlier meetings and allow participants to discuss forest assessment topics in greater detail with Inyo National Forest employees. During this assessment phase of the forest plan revision process, the public can share key information they have about the forest and raise specific interests and concerns.
More information about the meetings and Forest Plan Revision is available at http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/inyo/landmanagement/planning. Contact Susan Joyce, Forest Planner, at 760-873-2516 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the topic papers, meetings, or to register for the webinar.
