Forest Service Open House Sept. 6 to Discuss Potential Snowmobile Restrictions in OSV Draft EIS

Sonora, CA...Forest Supervisor Jason Kuiken will host an open house Thursday, Sept. 6, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Stanislaus National Forest Supervisor’s Office. Members of the public may review maps and discuss the draft Environmental Impact Statement alternatives with forest staff. Maps of the proposed Over-Snow vehicle-use designations for each alternative will be on display.





The Forest Service, through the OSV-Use Designation project, will designate National Forest System snow trails and areas for public OSV use on the Stanislaus NF, as well as identifying those trails that will be groomed on the forest.

“The draft EIS is the result of public scoping activities, including comment periods and public meetings where visitors shared their thoughts on how best to manage the OSV program,” Kuiken said. “We developed several alternatives that would fit the project’s requirements, one of which we consider a preferred alternative.”

The forest developed its preferred alternative in part by incorporating comments it received during the public scoping period and to address significant issues described in chapter one of the DEIS.

“The preferred alternative represents a balance of highly desirable, historically popular OSV-use areas and trails, while protecting resources and other uses of NFS system lands,” said Katie Wilkinson, environmental coordinator for the Stanislaus National Forest. “We believe this alternative meets the intent of the Travel Management Rule, the community’s needs and the Forest Service’s mission.”

Visitors are welcome to provide written comments during the meeting, Wilkinson said. Comments received during the comment period, which ends on Oct. 9, will be reviewed and incorporated into the Final EIS. The FEIS and Draft Record of Decision are expected to be available in February 2019.

    What a freekin joke. This place has been taken over by bay area snobs.

    So SPI shut down all the forest for hunters, trails for 4x4s now snowmobiles.
    You do know that we live in the woods right? Thats what we do up here.
    All good, this is the reason why so many people are streaming out of California.
    But at least you have more homeless people in Arnold who dont have to worry about bail right?

      The land that SPI has closed is their land. They paid for it, and pay taxes on it. It’s not public land. Just like your backyard. It belongs to you. You decide who gets to use your backyard. The first person that trespassed on your yard, you would have arrested. Think about it.
      Forest Service lands are public. Show up to this meeting and give input. But leave SPI out of your rage.

Keep it the way it is. Since they are on 10 feet of snow they aren't hurting anything! Let them enjoy the snow, it's the way it's been and should be.

This will go just like the trail closures a few years ago and the Candy Rock range. They will pretend to listen, come up with silly rules that make no sense and no one will claim authorship of, and then close the public out of public land.
I'll just do what I want. Catch me if you can, and blow your budget trying.
