6A Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Plan for Warner Valley released for comment Lassen Volcanic National Park has released the Final Environmental Impact State- ment for the Warner Valley Comprehensive Site Plan (FEIS). Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz said, "I am pleased to announce the release of this document, which is the result of many years of collaboration between park staff, re- searchers and the public. I greatly appreciate the input we received during the devel- opment of the plan from indi- viduals and groups who have a deep commitment to this beautiful and historically sig- nificant area." The park developed the Warner Valley Comprehen- sive Site Plan in response to the numerous management needs identified within the Warner Valley area, including the restoration of the valley's unusual fen and wetland com- plex, and protection and maintenance of archaeologi- cal and cultural sites, such as the historic Drakesbad Guest Ranch. "The plan also focuses on improving hiking paths and trails, and expanding inter- pretive offerings as well as ad- dressing potential safety is- sues that may arise from inad- equate parking pullouts and foot traffic along the Warner Valley Road," Koontz said. The Environmental Protec- tion Agency published the an- nouncement in the Federal Register Sept. 24, the begin- ning of a minimum 30-day waiting period. After the waiting period, a Record of Decision will be pre- pared by the park and for- warded to the regional direc- tor, National Park Service Pa- cific West Region, as the offi- cial responsible for the ap- proval of the Comprehensive Site Plan. After approval, the superin- tendent at Lassen Volcanic National Park will be the re- sponsible official for plan im- plementation., The FEIS will be sent to af- fected federal, tribal, state and local government agencies and other interested parties. The Preferred Plan Alternative 2 has been iden- tiffed as the agency-preferred and environmentally pre- ferred alternative in the FEIS.
