The Shasta-Trinity National Forest, located in northern California, released their Motorized Travel Management Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on June 29, 2009.

The Forest Service (FS) is asking for your input during a 45-day public review and comment period, which will end on August 10, 2009.

The DEIS examines a no action alternative and four action alternatives that manage a designated system of existing routes running throughout the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The DEIS describes these alternatives, the public input used to develop them, the analysis of the alternatives and the effects of implementing each one. The preferred alternative is also identified.

The public can view maps, review the alternatives for motorized travel and learn how to provide comments on the proposals at open houses scheduled from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm in the following locations:

* July 14, Veterans Memorial Hall, 101 Memorial Drive, Weaverville, California
* July 15, Trinity County Fairgrounds, Dining Hall, Hayfork, California
* July 16, Mt. Shasta Community Hall, 629 Alder St., Mt. Shasta, California
* July 21, Shasta-Trinity National Forest, 3644 Avtech Parkway, Redding, California
The public may also review the DEIS along with associated maps by going to the Forest's website at http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/shastatrinity/news/ohv/official-docs.shtml. The DEIS and maps of all the alternatives are also available for viewing at U.S. Forest Service's offices in Redding, Mt. Shasta, Shasta Lake, Hayfork and Weaverville along with the Shasta, Trinity and Siskiyou County libraries.
Public comments are Invited on the DEIS. Comments should be as specific as possible. It is also helpful if comments refer to specific pages or chapters of the DEIS. Before commenting the public is urged to review the DEIS, including appendices and associated maps.
