Our friends at CORVA have put together a good document that explains the purpose of comments, and how to write them effectively.

How to Write Effective Comments

 

The most important thing to mention in your comments your DETAILED attachment to the areas you ride in the Plumas. Be specific. Talk about why you ride the areas you do. Talk about the community that exists around playing in the snow on forest lands.

 

Download this document and include it with your comments. It will help.

We’ve made an animated gif to see what’s being proposed a little better. The image toggles between existing management (alternative 1) and the proposal (alt 2)

Gray is open, green is closed. Notable proposed closures are on Bucks Lake Rd, the area south/southwest of Eureka State park, Dixie Peak, Mt Fillmore, and around Lake Davis.
