PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD

The public comment period has been set for 10/17 to 11/17. It is extremely important that we comment and that we make our comments relevant to the task at hand. As it stands now, the issues identified in the scoping document range from direct impacts of recreational use and indirect impacts of recreational use such as "soundscape" changes to the natural processes issue.

In the event that you need some ideas or that you don’t feel comfortable writing your own statement, I have posted my statement. By this point you know my views on the subject and if you agree with my views you are welcome to use all or part of it.
