Southern California National Forests Land Management Plan Amendment
The Southern California National Forests (the Angeles, Cleveland, Los Padres, and San Bernardino National Forests) are developing a proposed amendment for the Land Management Plans (LMPs) adopted in 2006. The proposed amendment would revise land use zone allocations for select Inventoried Roadless Areas (IRAs) within the four forests and amend LMP monitoring protocols. This proposed LMP amendment is a result of the Settlement Agreement approved January 3, 2011 for California Resources Agency, et al vs. United States Department of Agriculture, and Center for Biological Diversity, et al vs. United States Department of Agriculture.
Scoping began on April 27, 2012 and closed on June 11, 2012. One EIS will be prepared with a Record of Decision (ROD) for each Land Management Plan. This joint planning process will maintain the consistent management direction and format across the four Forests.
