BlueRibbon Coalition National Land Use Update
USFS Planning Rule Meetings Underway

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
Reports are trickling in from the field on the meetings the USFS is holding on their Draft Planning Rule. The reports are mostly what you might expect. The USFS seems to be sticking to a repetition of the materials presented on their website The meetings are useful for attendees to ask questions, but the agency is not taking comments.
Attendance at these meetings is important to ensure the Forest Service understands recreation is concerned and engaged in the process. It prevents the misleading "preservationist" attendance overload.
Just remember, these meetings are designed for the interested public to have the Forest Service explain the proposed rule and for the public to ask questions about the rule. The questions and how they are asked are important, but the Forest Service is explicitly not taking formal comments at the meetings.
Below is an updated meeting schedule. BRC is just about finished slogging through the details of the planning rule and we will have a review, as well as several comment suggestions soon. Stay Tuned!
As always, please call or email if you have any comments or questions.
