The Tonto National Forest is releasing the draft environmental impact statement as part of compliance with the Travel Management Rule, which requires that all National Forest System lands designate roads, trails, and areas for motor vehicle travel.
The Tonto National Forest will be posing a Notice of Availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Travel Management Project in the Federal Register, which will begin the 45-day public review and comment period. The DEIS provides the public an opportunity to learn about and participate in the federal decision-making process. In asking for your input, please consider the following questions:
• Are there effects to resources or the environment that should be analyzed?
• Are there different alternatives to those analyzed that should be considered?
• Is there any relevant information or data we should know about that could cause changes or revisions to one or more of the alternatives analyzed?
• Are the methodologies for or assumptions used adequate or is there additional information we should consider?
