LNF announces proposal for OSV use designation The Lassen National Forest reports it is beginning to prepare an environmental impact statement for the designation of over-snow vehicle use, in order to comply with Subpart C: Use by Over-Snow Vehicles, of the Forest Service Travel Management Rule. The intent of this part of the rule is to designate national forest roads, trails and areas where OSVs are allowed, restricted and prohibited on national forest system lands. The Forest Service's goal in designating OSV use on the Lassen National Forest is to ensure that the use of OSVs is well managed -- with a system that ensures access, minimizes natural resource impacts and user conflicts, and promotes the safety of all forest visitors. OSV use that is inconsistent with these designations would be prohibited under 36 CFR part 261. The overall objective of this proposal is to provide a manageable system of trails and areas designated for OSV use within the Lassen National Forest, consistent with and to achieve the purposes of Forest Service Travel Management Rule at 36 CFR Part 212. As an important step in preparing the environmental impact statement, the Forest Service has prepared a "proposed action," which serves as a point from which to continue dialog with the public about this project. At this time a decision has not been made regarding the project. The Forest Service encourages anyone who is interested to participate in this process and requests comments about any issues with the proposed action or suggestions on how issues might be resolved. To ensure comments are fully considered during the scoping phase of this project, they are requested by Feb. 15. Additional comments are welcome throughout the planning process. "We look forward to active participation from all interested groups, organizations and individuals Effective stewardship of the Lassen National Forest is a dynamic process, and we welcome comment and the open sharing of ideas," said Forest Supervisor Dave Hays.
