PUBLIC NOTICE The BLM’s Tillamook Field

PUBLIC NOTICE The BLM’s Tillamook Field Office published a notice in the South County Spotlight newspaper on February 17, 2017 initiating a 15 day public protest period for the Field Office’s decision to implement the Quarry 5 Timber Sale. The Tillamook Field Manager has signed a Revised Decision Record for the Quarry 5 Timber Sale that updates the February 17, 2017 Quarry 5 Timber Sale Decision Record. The Revised Decision also pertains to implementation of the Quarry 5 Timber Sale which includes commercial regeneration harvest, commercial thinning, and Riparian Reserve density management on approximately 253 acres of BLM land in the East Fork Nehalem 6th field watershed. The Revised Decision Record is available on the internet at https://tinyurl.com/Quarry5DR. The decision described in the Revised Decision Record document is a forest management decision and is subject to protest by the public. The principle of administrative finality precludes any further protest of the original February 17, 2017 Quarry 5 Timber Sale Decision and the findings contained therein. Consequently, protest of the Revised Decision Record is specifically limited to the issue addressed in the Quarry 5 Timber Sale Revised Decision (failure to consider a full range of alternatives). In accordance with Forest Management Regulations at 43 CFR 5003, protests of this revised decision must be made within 15 days of the publication of this notice of decision in the South County Spotlight newspaper of Scappoose, Oregon. To protest this revised decision a person must submit a written protest to the BLM Tillamook Field Manager, Karen Schank at 4610 Third Street, Tillamook, Oregon 97141, by the close of business (4:30 p.m.) on July 10, 2017. The regulations do not authorize the acceptance of protests in any form other than a signed, written, and printed original that is delivered to the physical address of the Tillamook Field Office. The protest must clearly and concisely state the reasons why the revised decision is believed to be in error regarding the specific issue of failure to consider a full range of alternatives. Any objection to the revised decision to go forward with this project must be filed at this time in accordance with the protest process outlined above. If a timely protest is received, this decision will be reconsidered in light of the statements of reasons for the protest and other pertinent information available and the BLM shall serve a decision in writing on the protesting party (43 CFR 5003.3).
