ACTION: Notice of initiating the assessment phase of the forest plan
revision for the Santa Fe National Forest.


SUMMARY: The Santa Fe National Forest (Forest), located in northern New
Mexico, is initiating the first phase of the forest planning process
pursuant to the 2012 National Forest System land management planning
rule. This process will result in a revised forest land management plan
(Forest Plan) which describes the strategic direction for management of
forest resources on the Santa Fe National Forest for the next ten to
fifteen years. The first phase of the process, the assessment phase, is
beginning on the Santa Fe National Forest and interested parties are
invited to contribute in the development of the assessment. The Forest
will be hosting public forums throughout April and May 2014 where we
will invite the public to share information relevant to the assessment
including existing information, current trends, and local knowledge.

DATES: Public meetings associated with the development of the
assessment are anticipated throughout April and May 2014 and will be
announced on our Web site and to
individuals and organizations on our mailing list. The assessment for
the Santa Fe National Forest is anticipated to be completed in early
2015. Following completion of the assessment, the Forest will initiate
procedures pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to
prepare and evaluate a revised forest plan.
