Boise NF-Idaho City Ranger District Begins Travel Planning


Of principal interest is specifically which, if any, of the user-created routes within the "E" areas to formally designate for public motorized travel and what site-specific information the Forest Service (FS) should consider in evaluating user-created routes proposed for formal designation. At the conclusion of this process, only formally designated routes will remain available for public motorized travel in these areas. The first step in the planning process is to develop a detailed proposal for the new designated travel plan. They call this the "proposed action." The FS needs your input! The FS is working on developing that proposed action right now! It is extremely important that individuals and groups who are interested in motorized recreation in these areas participate in this process. All information received will be available for public review and comment later this fall. The deadline to submit comments for this part of the planning process is August 30, 2008.Keep in mind that the new Travel Rule applies to ALL motorized vehicles. Hunters who use ATVs  or motorcycles to retrieve harvested big game have the potential to be most directly affected by this route designation process. The FS is holding two public meetings, where they will explain the Travel Route Designation Process for the Idaho City Ranger District.

Bingaman hopes that the Omnibus Public Land Management Act (S. 3213) will similarly facilitate the passage of the remaining resources bills which have been reported by Senate ENR during this Congress. Here’s what’s in S. 3213:
