- Santa Fe National Forest Travel Management Plan Scoping has Ended! Now What?
Last Updated: December 19, 2008
The Santa Fe National Forest official Scoping period ended on September 2nd. The SFNF has repeatedly told the public that they will continue to take input until they release the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). SO.....while the official Scoping period is over, we can continue to help the FS fully understand our requests. Obviously, the closer to the release of the DEIS, the harder it will be for the FS's planning team to incorporate our input into the Alternatives contained within the DEIS.
Now is the time to escort the FS personnel from the District Offices to the field. They have expressed a willingness to walk/ride key sections of our requested routes. Examine the roads and trails we asked to be included in the Alternatives, listen to their concerns about our requested routes, and work with them toward sustainable solutions.
Don't delay! The date for the release of the DEIS seems like a long time in the future (early next summer) but winter weather will soon restrict access to many of the routes. Waiting for next spring will be too close to the DEIS release date for maximum effectiveness.
The Hard work now will have benefits for the future!
