No. 29282 Notice of Opportunity to Comment Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail Comprehensive Plan/EA U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service Pacific Northwest Regional Office The USDA Forest Service is developing a comprehensive plan for the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail (Pacific Northwest Trail) and associated environmental analysis. The Forest Service is inviting you to participate in our public comment period for review of this draft comprehensive plan and environmental assessment (EA). You can find the draft comprehensive plan, EA, and supporting documentation at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=52259. For additional information, or to request a paper copy of the documents, please contact Joe David, Environmental Coordinator, by emailing joseph.david@usda.gov. The congressionally designated route of the 1,200-mile Pacific Northwest Trail is located between Glacier National Park and the Pacific Ocean in Olympic National Park, through Montana, Idaho, and Washington. It travels through seven national forests: the Flathead National Forest, Kootenai National Forest, Idaho Panhandle National Forests, Colville National Forest, Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and Olympic National Forest. It also travels through Glacier National Park, the North Cascades National Park Service Complex, Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, and Olympic National Park; public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management; the Colville Reservation and Swinomish Reservation in Washington; state forestlands and parks in Idaho and Washington; various county and municipal greenways; and along some public roads.   Our interdisciplinary team developed a draft comprehensive plan that would guide administration and management of the Pacific Northwest Trail and a supporting EA. The National Environmental Policy Act requires we assess the environmental impacts of administering and managing the trail on federal lands, and the EA considers those issues previously identified during public and interdisciplinary team scoping. The Regional Forester for the Pacific Northwest Region will review the EA and its integrated Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) factors in documenting a decision on the selected alternative to recommend to the Chief of the Forest Service. The Chief of the Forest Service is responsible for approving the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail Comprehensive Plan. Developing a comprehensive plan is critical to ensuring we are providing for the trail’s nature and purposes and the values for which it was designated. The process of developing the comprehensive plan allows us to develop a vision for future recreation opportunities and desired conditions along the trail. By sharing your ideas and opinions about how the Pacific Northwest Trail should be managed, you can help us shape its future. HOW TO COMMENT  This project falls under regulations for the Forest Service predecisional objection process, found at 36 CFR 218 (Title 36, Chapter II), https://www.ecfr.gov/current/title-36/chapter-II/part-218?toc=1. Your input and ideas on this proposal will be helpful to our interdisciplinary team. We want to hear your substantive comments on the comprehensive plan and supporting documentation, along with supporting rationale that we should consider in finalizing the comprehensive plan and its accompanying environmental analysis. Pursuant to 36 CFR 218.25, comments on this proposed project will be accepted for 30 days beginning on the first day after the date of publication of the legal notice in the newspaper of record (The Seattle Times) and will end 30 days following the date of publication of the notice. If the last day of the 30-day comment period falls on a weekend or federal holiday the comment period will be extended through the following business day. For this project, there is an online portal to gather your comments.  Please submit your comments online at https://cara.fs2c.usda.gov/Public/CommentInput?project=52259 by selecting the “Comment on Project” link in the “Get Connected” group at the right-hand side of the project webpage.
