Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison Forest Plan Revision #51806

Commenting on This Project

The Draft Forest Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests are now available for public comment from August 13 to November 12, 2021.

The Forest Service values public participation. To be most helpful, your comments should be 1) within the scope of the proposed plan or alternatives, 2) have a direct relationship to the proposed plan or alternatives and 3) must include supporting reasons for the responsible official to consider.

Communications from the public regarding this project, including commenters' names and contact information, will become part of the public record. Comments, including anonymous comments, will be accepted at any time. However, comments posted after the close of a designated comment period may not be able to be given full consideration. Anonymous comments and comments submitted after the close of the final designated comment period will not provide the commenter standing for administrative review. Comments, or in some cases other expressions of interest, along with respondent's contact information, submitted during the comment period may be necessary to establish a respondent's eligibility to participate in a subsequent administrative review (objections) for this proposed action. Interested members of the public should review the proposal's information to determine the applicable administrative review process and the eligibility requirements for that process.

  • The date of the legal notice of opportunity to comment on this proposed action (August 13) is the exclusive means for calculating the comment period.
  • The legal notice announcing the comment period will be published on August 13 in the paper of record for the forest, the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel.
  • For Draft Environmental Impact Statements, a Notice of Availability announcing the comment period also appears in the Federal Register.

For all materials related to this effort, including maps and GIS data, please see http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/DraftForestPlan.

Your comments are requested by 11/12/2021.
