Nevada City, CA – The Forest Service has released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Tahoe National Forest Over-Snow Vehicle (OSV) Use Designation Project.

With this project, the Forest Service is proposing to designate snow trails and areas for public OSV use on the Tahoe National Forest. The Forest Service will also identify snow trails where grooming for public OSV use would occur within the Tahoe National Forest.

The Notice of Availability for the DEIS was published in the Federal Register April 13, 2018. The Notice of Availability will initiate a 45-day public comment period on the DEIS. The Forest Service encourages public review of the DEIS alternative descriptions, maps and environmental analysis.

The DEIS is available online at the Tahoe National Forest website at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=45914

Comments must be provided in writing. Specific instructions for submitting comments can be found within the DEIS.

In addition, the Tahoe National Forest will be answering questions regarding the OSV Use Designation Project at the public open house meeting May 9, 2018 and May 16, 2018. Please see below for the exact location and meeting times.
