Forest Service seeks public input

The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit wants to continue the dialogue with Lake Tahoe communities concerning the Sierra Nevada Framework for Conservation and Collaboration.

A public workshop has been scheduled Wednesday to update the community and receive public comments on the framework’s notice of intent.

The Forest Service in November released its notice of intent on the proposed Sierra Nevada Framework, the next step in developing a comprehensive plan for all of the Sierra’s national forests. The Sierra Nevada Framework process began in 1998 with numerous workshops throughout the mountain range, including South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City and Carson City.

Residents are asked to submit points of interest or debate about the potential effects of the proposed action by Jan. 19. A draft environmental impact report is expected to be released this year, which will be followed by another public-comment period.

Sierra Nevada Framework public workshop is set for Wednesday, 6 to 9 p.m., at South Tahoe High School Library, 1735 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

For information Call Linda Massey or Jeannie Stafford, (530) 573-2600.
