In July 2004, Regional Forester, Randy Moore, signed the Record of Decision (ROD) formally documenting his selection of an alternative to become the revised Forest Plan for the Superior National Forest. The ROD also explains the rationale for his choice.

The final EIS documents the analysis and effects of seven alternatives considered for plan revision. The executive summary presents this information in abbreviated form. The EIS appendices include additional information used to analyze effects of the alternatives as well as a summary of public comments received in response to the draft EIS and Proposed Forest Plan along with the Forest Service response to the comments.

The revised plans will guide the management of the Superior National Forest for the next 10 to 15 years. The revised plan is strategic in nature, with an emphasis on ecological, social, and economic sustainability over the long-term. We invite you to stay informed and involved as we move ahead with site-specific project planning under the direction of our new forest plan. For information about ongoing projects on the Superior National Forest, see the Superior Quarterly which is posted under "Projects and Planning."
