Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest to Host Travel Management Open Houses

October 03, 2007 6:00 AM

BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

Attention Wisconsin and Upper Michigan recreationists!

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is continuing their work on the new travel plan that will limit ALL vehicle use to designated roads, trails and areas. The Forest Service (FS) will be hosting a series of open houses on the Travel Management Rule planning process during the month of October 2007. 

The Open House will include a brief presentation of the Travel Management Rule and the process for determining designated roads and trails as available for motorized use. The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest's initial proposal of designated roads and trails will also be discussed. Forest Service staff will be available after the presentation to answer your questions. You will have an opportunity to view maps of the initial proposal as well as the current transportation system.

Comments will be accepted throughout the process. Please provide your comments at the Open Houses or if you prefer, you may mail them to the Forest Service at the address to the right. To most efficiently address your comments, we recommend you send them by October 29, 2007.

The open houses will be held at a variety of locations around Wisconsin (see schedule below). This will be the next step in the local planning process which will finalize with the production of a motor vehicle use map by January 2009.  All interested parties are encouraged to attend.
