The new Objection Process

Objection Process Header Image

As of March 27, 2013, many projects and activities within the Forest Service are subject to a pre-decisional administrative review process, commonly referred to as an objection process. Under this process, individuals and entities may file objections after an environmental analysis document is completed and before a decision document is signed. This process builds on early participation and collaboration efforts, with the intention of resolving concerns before a decision is made.
