Forest Plan Administrative Change 2 Proposal

Beginning in mid-July 2018, the Ottawa National Forest will be releasing a scoping letter detailing proposed changes to the Ottawa’s 2006 Forest Plan, specifically for the following reasons: 

  1. To update the existing Monitoring Plan based on the recommended findings of the 2017 Monitoring Evaluation Report to refine language for monitoring questions 11, 12a, 12b, 17, 19, 30, 31 and 33 (Forest Plan, pp. 4-12, 4-13, 4-15, 4-16, 4-21 and 4-22); and
  2. To correct the Visuals Map (Forest Plan, p. G-4) so that the visual quality objectives assigned in the Wild and Scenic River corridors match the Forest Plan’s direction for these areas (Forest Plan, p. 3-81.5).
