Forest Officials Release Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Public Motor Vehicle Use on the Pike & San Isabel National Forests
Officials from the Pike and San Isabel National Forests and Comanche and Cimarron National Grasslands (PSICC) released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for public motor vehicle use. The Notice of Availability published in the Federal Register on September 20, 2019, initiating the formal 45-day public comment period that ends November 4, 2019.
“Feedback on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement will help strengthen our analysis,” said Forest and Grassland Supervisor Diana Trujillo. “Hearing the voices of various forest users is extremely important to us. Our goal is to designate a motorized system that works for the public while caring for natural and cultural resources.”
The alternatives address a range of concerns about resource impacts from motor vehicle use, reduced motorized access, and potential conflicts between motorized and non-motorized users.
Forest officials will host four meetings for the public to review the alternatives, ask questions and learn how to submit comments. The Salida Community meeting will be held on October 8th from 6:00PM-7:30PM in the SteamPlant Ballrooom.
