From the Daniel Boone Project Team
We are planning to make a decision on the Cave Run Non-Motorized Trails Project in April or May this year. This is a later than what we had hoped, but we continue to move forward. Resource specialists have completed an analysis of the physical, biological, social, and economic effects of each of the alternatives that were presented in the Comment Period Report we released August 31, 2012.
Currently, other agency partners are reviewing the environmental analysis. We expect these reviews to be completed in April. The Forest Supervisor will then make a final decision based on 1) the effects of project activities disclosed within the resource analyses; 2) which alternative best meets the project purpose and need; and 3) which alternative best addresses the issues raised during scoping and the comments received during the legal comment period.
We will let you know when a decision has been made and the completed Environmental Assessment and decision document have been posted on the Daniel Boone National Forest website. You can access this website to review other project documents here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/dbnf/landmanagement/projects
We will keep you informed of further progress and any changes that may occur. Please contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 989-724-9381.
