Commenting on This Project

Objecting to This Project

Communication from the public regarding this land management plan revision, including objector’s names and contact information, will become part of the public record.

Alaska Native Tribes and Corporations who engaged in formal consultation during the planning process, and individuals and entities who have submitted substantive formal comments related to the plan revision during the opportunities for public comment may file objections for Forest Service review prior to the approval of the final record of decision and Regional Forester’s list of species of conservation concern for the Chugach National Forest. The publication date of the legal notice in the Chugach National Forest's newspaper of record, the Anchorage Daily News, initiates the 60-day objection period and is the exclusive means for calculating the time to file an objection (36 CFR 219.52(c)(5)).

Submitting Objections

Objections must be submitted to the Objection Reviewing Officer by one of the following methods:

  • Electronically to the Objection Reviewing Officer via the attached objection web form. Electronic submissions must be submitted in a format (Word, PDF, or Rich Text) that is readable and searchable with optical character recognition software. An automated response will confirm that the electronic objection was received.
  • Via regular mail, carrier, or hand delivery to the following address: USDA Forest Service, Attn: Objection Reviewing Officer, Alaska Region, 709 W. 9th Street,  Juneau, AK 99801, or P.O. Box 21628, Juneau, AK 99801. Note that the office hours for submitting a hand-delivered objection are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Alaska Time, Monday through Friday, excluding Federal holidays.
  • Via fax to (907) 586-7840. Faxes must be addressed to “Objection Reviewing Officer.”  The fax coversheet should specify the number of pages being submitted. 
  • Individuals who use telecommunication devices for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339 between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday.

An objection must include the content required in Code of Federal Regulations (36 CFR 219.54(c)).  This is listed in the legal notice in the Anchorage Daily News, and linked to the Decision tab here, which includes the name of the Responsible Official.

It is the responsibility of the objector to ensure that the reviewing officer receives the objection in a timely manner. The regulations prohibit extending the length of the objection filing period.
