The Tillamook Field Manager is requesting public comments on proposed management activities in the South Scappoose Creek area.   The South Scappoose Creek Project would treat approximately 1,800 acres of BLM-administered lands using commercial thinning in conifer stands and hardwood removal ranging from individual tree removal to regeneration harvest areas generally not exceeding 10 acres in size. Average stand age ranges from approximately 40 to 75 years old.  Other activities may include road construction and/or renovation of existing roads that access the project area, and the decommissioning and/or stabilization of roads after harvesting activities are completed.  The project is located in the South Scappoose Creek subwatershed in Washington and Columbia Counties.  These actions would occur on private and federal land in portions of T.3N, R.2W, sections 7, 9, 19, 21 and 29; and T.3N, R3W, sections 1, 11 and 13; Willamette Meridian.

We would appreciate hearing any information or concerns you may have about this project.  Comments may be sent by email, in writing or by telephone, and should be received by March 23rd, 2011 to be considered in the planning for this project.  Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the Tillamook Resource Area Office during regular business hours (7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays, and may be published as part of environmental analysis documents or related correspondence.

Individual respondents may request confidentiality.  If you wish to withhold your name or street address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your written comment.  Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by law.  All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public inspection in their entirety.
