Public Comment Opportunity

Western Lane District's Implementation Plan (IP) revision and Forest Land Management Classification (FLMC) changes are open for public comment for a 30-day period from March 20 to April 18, 2017. Western Lane's IP is to be aligned with the 2010 Northwest Oregon State Forest Management Plan.

The district’s Implementation Plan describes management activities, such as harvesting, roads and reforestation that will occur over a 10-year period. The IP provides the objectives for the annual operations plans, while aligning with the goals and strategies found in the long-term Northwest Oregon State Forests Management Plan. 
Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) manages and protects the forest through its long-term Forest Management Plans, including the “Forest Land Management Classification System” (OAR 629-035-0050 to 629-035-0060). Forest Land Management Classification designations receive regular evaluation for updating when new information is learned about forest resources.
