Open houses will be held in the afternoon from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and will provide opportunities for one-on-one discussions and questions. The public meetings will be held in the evenings from 6:30 pm -8:30 pm and will include presentations by the Forest Service and a limited opportunity to ask questions.

Public Review and Comment Period is from September 26, 2008 through November 26, 2008 unless a extension is granted by the Forest Supervisor. The public can ask for an extension if they feel that the comment period is not long enough to make comments. You would need to send a letter requesting an extension to the Tahoe Forest Supervisor.

If there is no extension is granted your comments must be postmarked by November 26 and can be sent to: Tahoe National Forest, Attn: Travel Management Team, 631 Coyote St, Nevada City, CA 95959 or email to: tnf_rte_desig@fs.fed.us This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

This is a DRAFT document and changes are expected between the draft and the Final EIS.

What is Next?

After the comments are analyzed, a Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision will be completed. From this decision, a motor vehicle use map will be developed to show which trails and areas are available for motorized use, the seasons of use, and the class of vehicle designation. This motor vehicle use map will also prohibit motorized vehicles off designated roads, trails, and areas and is expected to be updated annually.

For more Information the full DEIS is available on the Forest website at www.fs.fed.us/r5/tahoe For additional information, contact the Forest Headquarters (530) 265-4531 or refer to the above website.

This will be a major topic at the North District meeting being held October 18th. Also feel free to contact me if you would like more information on the process or have questions.
