[Image]: Forest Service Shield.SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, California – The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) is seeking comments on a proposal for the management and uses of existing roads, trails and facilities located on National Forest System (NFS) lands in the Lake Tahoe Basin. 

The proposed action consists of four components:  maintenance and management of roads, trails and facilities; authorization of outfitter guide activities; authorization of events; and authorization of special use permits for recreational uses on NFS lands.  The proposed action complies with existing management direction found in the LTBMU Land and Resources Management Plan, existing rules, regulations, and administrative decisions regarding the use of NFS lands.

The proposed action identifies specific criteria and design features to establish thresholds on activities, which may proceed under the proposed analysis.  An Environmental Assessment will likely be prepared, which will analyze activities considered appropriate to proceed under this project, under what conditions those activities may proceed, and any relevant design features that will reduce the risk to environmental, historic, social and recreational resources.

Comments are most helpful if received by January 15, 2016.

The proposed action is available at
