We held open houses at district offices from June to August in 2017 to provide the public with opportunities to talk with forest staff about local issues, district project, and forest plan revision. The open houses allowed the public to talk directly with Forest Service staff one-on-one. Each District Open House highlighted the areas within that district. The dates and locations for the 2017 open houses were June 29 on the Grandfather Ranger District, July 11 on the Nantahala Ranger District, July 13 on the Pisgah Ranger District Office, July 25 on the Appalachian Ranger District, July 25 on the Cheoah Ranger District, and August 8 on the Tusquitee Ranger District. Future dates for additional public meetings in 2018 will be announced when they are available. 

 

Nantahala Pisgah Forest Plan Revision IDT meetings were open to public observers. These were our working meetings and we're excited to provide you with an opportunity to see how we operate. At IDT meetings, we developed ideas and built plan components through discussions between our resource specialists at these meetings. IDT meeting notes from past meetings are as follows:
