Plan Revision Public Meetings

November 2017

The Tonto National Forest hosted eight Plan Revision Open House Public Meetings in November 2017 to discuss the Preliminary Proposed Plan and any further ideas for revising the land and resource management plan (Forest Plan). These meetings also included updates on the Wilderness Recommendation Process and the Wild & Scenic Rivers Eligibility Study.

Designed for partners and stakeholders, these meetings hosted technical in-depth discussion on topics such as: rangelands and grazing, forests and fuels, restoration, recreation, wildlife, invasive species, and more. Partners spent time working side-by-side with resource specialists and Plan Revision Team members to discuss and provide feedback on the content of the Preliminary Proposed Plan.

September - October 2016 - Needs for Change

The Needs to Change Public Meetings provided an overview of the Tonto National Forest’s Plan Revision process, what has been accomplished so far, and what’s ahead. We shared findings of the Draft Assessment and how it will guide the development of the revised plan. The needs to change statements were developed based on feedback gathered during the public meetings as well as comments received from our Forest communities.
