Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015 7A Ann Powers Staff Writer erv ice ings Rodders donate Snowmobiles, bald eagles and adequate snow depth will be topics discussed during an upcoming series of meetings scheduled by the U.S. Forest Service regarding over-snow vehicle use. The Forest Service is preparing an environmental impact statement on a proposal designating OSV use on roads, trails and lands within the Plumas National Forest. It also identifies snow trails available for grooming. "Being involved in this - planning effort will help us expand a variety of winter recreation opportunities that allow people to have fun safely while minimizing impacts to natural and cultural resources," said acting Forest Supervisor Daniel Lovato. Part of the "planning effort" Lovato references is also mandated by a 2013 settlement between the Forest Service and Snowlands Network requiring the agency to re-do an environmental analysis of OSV use under the National Environmental Policy Act. "The previous analysis we did was found to be inadequate," said Bart Lander, a Forest Service environmental coordinator, during a meeting atthe Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds, Nov. 6, 2014. "It's unfortunate we didn't do an adequate job the first time." As an initial step in preparing the EIS, Forest Service representatives said the proposed action serves as a point of continued dialogue with the public. A draft study is expected by February 2017, with a final version slated for August 2017. Five national forests are impacted by the settlement: Eldorado, Tahoe, Stanislaus, Lassen and Plumas. "We are the ffffth of five," said Leanne Schramel-Taylor, Plumas National Forest Service spokesperson. "This is Snowmobile use in Plumas National Forest is on the agenda for a series by the U.S. Forest Service to solicit public input on the environmental im Photo submitted not decision making time. This is truly the planning stage." Among other items, the 14-page proposal includes a designated trail around Lake Davis, an exception to the 12-inch snow depth requirement and prohibitions on approximately 5,940 acres in a portion of the Lakes Basin, Black Gulch and Clear Creek areas for OSV use. "There will be feedback from A to Z and wrong to right," anticipated Schramel-Taylor. "It's required by law to give people a sense of the direction we're taking." The scheduled meeting dates are: Oct. 8 - PlumBs-Sierra County Fairgrounds, Mineral Building, 204 Fairground Rd., Quincy; Oct. 14 - Chalet View Lodge Conference Room, 72056 Hwy. 70, Portola; Oct. 15- Feather River Ranger District Office, 875 Mitchell Ave., Oroville.
