October 16, 2014 12:26PM
The Mammoth and Mono Lake Ranger Districts of the Inyo National Forest are initiating an environmental analysis for changes to the motorized trail and road network on the two districts. The Motorized Transportation System Modifications project will consider adding and removing routes in various locations – mainly between Mammoth Lakes and Lee Vining. The purpose of the project is to improve important recreational, tribal and permitted-use access and address safety concerns, while improving resource conditions.

The complete proposed action with detailed project area maps is available on the Inyo National Forest website at http://www.fs.fed.us/nepa/fs-usda-pop.php/?project=44720. Hard copies can be obtained at Mammoth Lakes Visitor Center at 2510 Hwy 203 in Mammoth Lakes, or Inyo National Forest Supervisors Office at 351 Pacu Lane in Bishop, CA. You can also request a copy of the proposed action by contacting Jon Kazmierski at 760-924-5503 or jkazmierski@fs.fed.us.

The proposed action is currently available for a 30-day scoping period. We invite your comments regarding issues, opportunities, concerns, and suggestions for the proposed project. Your comments will be most helpful if received by November 15, 2014. The Forest Service anticipates releasing a Draft Environmental Assessment for this project in late spring of 2015, providing additional opportunities for your input during a formal comment period prior to the final decision.

Please send your comments to the project manager, Marty Hornick at 351 Pacu Ln, Suite 200, Bishop, CA, 93514 or mhornick@fs.fed.us, 760-873-2461. Please direct questions about this project to Jon Kazmierski, District Recreation Officer at 760-924-5503 or jkazmierski@fs.fed.us.
