Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) released a proposal designating a system of roads, trails and areas for motorized use of the forest. This marks the beginning of the National Environmental Policy Act process for the project.
District Ranger Sandy Hurlocker explained to County Council members during a work session Tuesday in White Rock that SFNF has begun a review of its travel management of the entire forest. He detailed the forest’s travel management proposal and said it is undergoing a 45-day comment period.
Thirteen public meetings have been scheduled from late July through early August.
During the meetings, Forest Service staff will review and discuss the proposed action, take comments, and ascertain community issues and concerns, he said.
“We’ll hold a two-hour meeting for the public Aug. 14 at Fuller Lodge with a presentation, maps and time for public comments,” Hurlocker said. The meeting is scheduled for 6-8:30 p.m., according to the SFNF website.
Councilor Jim West expressed concern of a possible misunderstanding by the public.
“I think it’s important for the public to understand that this is not a once and forever kind of thing. There will be other opportunities to have their voices heard,” he said.
