Commenting on This Project

Thank you for your interest in this project. Objections will be collected through the webform once the objection period opens. The objection period is expected to start June 21, 2019. Details regarding this objection period are included in a legal notice published in the Idaho Statesman newspaper, the newspaper of record for decisions made by the Payette Forest Supervisor. A copy of that notice will be posted on the project website after publication. 

Eligibility to File Objections 

Objections will be accepted only from those who have previously submitted specific written comments regarding the proposed project either during scoping or other designated opportunity for public comment in accordance with 36 CFR § 218.5(a). Issues raised in objections must be based on previously submitted timely, specific, written comments regarding the proposed project unless based on new information arising after designated opportunities.  

Individual members of organizations must have submitted their own comments to meet the requirements of eligibility as an individual. Objections received on behalf of an organization are considered as those of the organization only. If an objection is submitted on behalf of a number of individuals or organizations, each individual or organization listed must meet the eligibility requirement of having previously submitted comments on the project (36 CFR § 218.7). Names and addresses of objectors will become part of the public record.
