Forest Landscape Value and Special Place Mapping for National Forest Planning Proposed

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: The Forest Service is seeking comments from all interested individuals and organizations on the new information collection, Forest Landscape Value and Special Place Mapping for National Forest Planning.

DATES: Comments must be received in writing on or before June 1, 2010 to be assured of consideration. Comments received after that date will be considered to the extent practicable.

Abstract: The Forest Service is proposing to augment the public participation process for revision of national forest land management plans by collecting data about the nature and location of landscape values and special places recognized by the public on national forest lands. Over the next 3 years, up to 15 national forest units will collect the aforementioned information as part of the national forest plan revision public participation process. The forest plan revision includes determining public desire for use (along with suitability of areas for different uses), identification of special areas, collaboration with the public, and monitoring for adaptive management.
