This comment form will automatically turn on when the Notice of Availability is published on February 14, 2020, initiating the 90-day comment period.

The Forest Service values public participation. Comments, including anonymous comments, will be accepted at any time. However, comments posted after the close of a designated comment period may not be given full consideration. Anonymous comments and comments submitted after the close of the designated comment period will not provide the commenter standing for administrative review.

Only individuals or entities (as defined by 36 CFR 218.2) who submit timely and specific written comments about this proposed project or activity during this or another public comment period established by the Responsible Official will be eligible to file an objection. The 90-day comment period will begin on the first day following the publication of the Notice of Availability in the Federal Register (NOA). The publication of the NOA in the Federal Register is the exclusive means for calculating the comment period for this proposal.

Comments should be within the scope of the proposed action, have a direct relationship to the proposed action, and must include supporting reasons for the Responsible Official to consider (36 CFR 218.2). Other eligibility requirements are defined by 36 CFR 218.25(a)(3) and include name, postal address, title of the project and signature or other verification of identity upon request and the identity of the individual or entity who authored the comments. Individual members of an entity must submit their own individual comments in order to have eligibility to object as an individual. A timely submission will be determined as outlined in 36 CFR 218.25(a)(4). It is the responsibility of the sender to ensure timely receipt of any comments submitted.

Electronic comments should be submitted through the web-based Comment and Analysis Response Application (CARA) below.
