USDA Forest Service announces public meetings on Greater Sage-grouse Plan amendments
Meeting in Cheyenne Oct. 23 and in Pinedale on Oct. 23
October 5, 2018

OGDEN, Utah The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) will hold two public meetings in Wyoming regarding the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for its Sage-Grouse Plan Amendments. On October 5, 2018, the USDA Forest Service published a Notice of Availability (NOA) announcing the release of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) with proposed amendments to Forest Service land management plans for greater sage-grouse. The affected plans occur within five western states: Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, and Utah. The purpose of the proposed changes is to improve the clarity, efficiency, and implementation of the current greater sage-grouse plans, including promoting landscape-scale alignment with state efforts.

The USFS is encouraging the public to attend one of the DEIS public comment open house meetings that will be held in Pinedale and Cheyenne, Wyoming. The meeting in Cheyenne will be held at Laramie Community College on October 22 in Room PF 108 at the Pathfinder Building, 1400 East College Drive. The meeting in Pinedale is scheduled for October 23 at the Pinedale Public Library, 155 S. Tyler Avenue. Both meetings will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Several information stations will be located within the meeting venue that will present information on key issues, the planning process, and the public commenting process. Forest Service staff will give a short introduction at 5 p.m. Attendees can learn about the amendment comment process, ask questions, and provide comments on the actions being considered.

To read and comment on the DEIS please visit the Forest Service Intermountain Region Webpage: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/r4/home/?cid=stelprd3843381. For more information, please contact: Sandra Underhill, Capitol City Coordinator at 307-777-6087 or John Shivik, National Sage grouse Coordinator at 801-625-5667 or johnashivik@fs.fed.us.
