The Lassen National Forest will host three public meetings to share the results of a workforce analysis and to gather information about possible impacts to our neighboring communities as the Pilot Project under Herger-Feinstein Quincy Library Group legislation comes to an end.
The project was implemented over approximately 1.5 million acres across the Lassen and Plumas National Forest and the Sierraville District of the Tahoe National Forest. It was designed to test and demonstrate the effectiveness of fuels and vegetation management activities to meet ecologic, economic and fuel reduction objectives.
The public is invited to hear a summary of the types of jobs being restructured and possible changes to resource programs or public services, and to help determine impacts, if any, to our area.
These meetings will include a short presentation from Forest Supervisor Jerry Bird, followed by a question and answer period, at which point comments will be captured for use during a Civil Rights Impact Analysis yet to be completed.
The following public meetings are scheduled to discuss the changes:
• Monday, September 12, 5:30 p.m., at the Almanor Ranger District Office in Chester, Calif. Please call 530-258-2141 for more information.
• Tuesday, September 13, 5:30 p.m., at the Lassen National Forest Supervisor’s Office. This meeting, to be held at 2550 Riverside Drive, Susanville, Calif., is for both the Supervisor’s Office and the Eagle Lake Ranger Station. Please call 530-257-2151 for more information.
• Thursday, September 15, 5:30 p.m., at the Hat Creek Ranger District Office, in Fall River Mills, Calif. Please call 530-336-5521 for more information.
