Forest roads management meeting, April 21

Staff Report

The Inyo National Forest will hold a public meeting to share the Draft Travel Analysis Report (TAR) on Tuesday, April 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Cerro Coso Community College in Bishop, 4090 W. Line Street. At the meeting, Inyo National Forest staff will share how they developed the Draft TAR, answer questions about TAP, and have the Draft TAR available for review. The Forest intends to post the Draft TAR to the Inyo National Forest website before the meeting, and will notify you by email when it is available. The Travel Analysis Process (TAP) is required by the 2005 Travel Management Rule and requires that forests provide a safe, financially, and environmentally sustainable road system that can realistically be maintained. Due to increased use, aging infrastructure, and decreasing budgets, the forest cannot maintain all roads to standards for safety and environmental protection. For more information, call 760-874-2427.
