Carson National Forest Starts SCOPING for Forest Plan Revision

The Carson National Forest is about a year into the four-year process of revising their Forest Plan. To this point, all of the input gathered from the public and "work" completed has been in preparation for the actual NEPA process necessary to revise a Forest Plan. The Notice of Intent (NOI) published on 10/7/15 officially starts the formal NEPA process that will result in a revised Forest Plan.

The Forest Plan does not, itself, create any new "action" on the part of the Forest Service or authorize any specific change in use.
