Planning

The implementation of change on the Angeles National Forest requires several layers of planning, including input from the public. This page is designed provide the public with most up-to-date documents and share planning documents and efforts to the public.

Land Management Plan Monitoring – 2016 Changes

The Angeles National Forest and SGMNM are seeking public comment on changes to our Land Management Plan Monitoring Framework. The changes are required by new planning regulations adopted by the Forest Service in 2012. Monitoring helps us assess the condition of National Forest resources, and determine if we are moving toward the desired conditions established in the Land Management Plan. It also helps identify and define future projects that are needed to meet the desired condition. Three documents are available for review and comment: 1) An  Appendix C – Monitoring Requirements; 2) Best Available Science document; and 3) Cover Letter inviting comments and providing instructions on how to submit them
