US Forest Service Plan Open House Mtgs Set
Posted on 02/23/2018

Editor's note: the following press release is being posted on our website in order to keep residents informed of events that could impact our community. This is not a County-sponsored open house - please contact the Forest Service with questions and comments. Their info is at the end of the press release.

The Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) will host open houses to give the public the opportunity to talk with U.S. Forest Service specialists about the Forest Plan under revision. 


There is no presentation or agenda for the open houses.  They are instead an informal opportunity for you to ask questions and for us to share information about the revision of the Forest Plan, the comprehensive document that will guide management of all forest resources for 10 to 15 years. 


This is a chance to share the progress made since the public meetings on Forest Plan Alternatives and Management Areas in March 2017. In previous open houses, table topics focused on resource areas.  The scheduled open houses will focus on planning topics including Alternatives, Geographic Areas, Management Areas, Monitoring, Wilderness, and Wild and Scenic Rivers.  Specialists from the Forest Plan team and Ranger District (RD) offices will also be available to answer questions on resource areas or on Forest Planning.


On May 14, there is an extended open house opportunity at the Supervisor’s Office located in Santa Fe for in-depth discussions about the Plan Revision topics.
