This notice initiates a 30-day comment period, which provides the public an opportunity to become involved at the initial stage of the project. In addition, this document provides general information about the proposal and its objectives. If requested, another notice with greater detail will be sent once the project progresses and proposed harvest units have been further defined.

Comments and concerns you may have about harvesting timber and the associated activities, which include roadwork and site preparation, are welcome and will be considered during analysis and the design of the project. The comment period will remain open until August 2,2013.
