By direction of the Lassen County Board of Supervisors, I am responding
to the Rangeland Health Standards and Guidelines for California and Northwest
Nevada Draft EIS.
We favor Alternative I as described in the DEIS.
As you know, the BLM created three Resource Advisory Councils for the
areas in your jurisdiction. These councils included members of the interested
public, including members representing elected officials. The elected officials:
Bill Maze, Tulare County, Nancy Huffman, Modoc County and Denny Bungarz,
Glenn County, have recommended Alternative 1 as the preferred alternative.
In their opinion, this alternative meets the objectives of the law, the
BLM and has the least negative effect to the cattle industry and the counties.
Alternative 1 was developed by a group of citizens with varied backgrounds
and interests after considerable training on basic ecological processes
Your favorable consideration of our recommendation is appreciated.
Lyle L. Lough, Chairman
