Upper Wenatchee Pilot Project #49124

Commenting on This Project

We are currently in the initial planning stages and have formulated one alternative so far, the ‘proposed action.’ Public input is a vital part of the planning project.   As part of scoping, we invite your comments on the project.  It would be helpful if comments were site-specific to the proposed activities in the project.  For information on the project please refer to the scoping letter and accompanying documents.

We are interested in your comments on the following questions: 

  • Are there alternative ways to better meet the purpose of the project other than the proposed action we offer, which you would like the Forest Service to consider and analyze?
  • Is there any information about the project area, which you believe is important in the context of the proposed activities that you would like the Forest Service to consider?
  • What specifically are the potential effects of this proposal that you are particularly concerned about? For example, rather than simply stating that you would like a change in a proposed activity or that you would not like an activity to take place, it is most helpful to understand why you desire this.  What are your underlying concerns with an activity or action; what are the effects from the activity that concern you?

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.

The Forest Service values public participation. Communications from the public regarding this project, including commenter’s names and contact information, will become part of the public record.

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 an administrative review 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 is the exclusive means for calculating the comment period. For proposals to be documented with an Environmental Assessment, the legal notice announcing the comment period appears in the Newspaper of Record . For Draft Environmental Impact Statements, the Notice of Availability announcing the comment period appears in the Federal Register.
