NEPA #: OR-128-06-06  Environmental Assessment
Document Publish Date: 11/21/2008
Summary: The Remote Control Timber Sale was sold on August 28, 1998 after the issuance of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The environmental impacts of the project were analyzed in the original Sandy/Remote Analysis Area EA (EA# OR128-96-21, revised 7-14-98). Since that time the sale has been part of several lawsuits that have delayed the award of the sale to the high bidder. These lawsuits broadly concern: impacts of projects to Port-Orford cedar (POC), ambiguous language pertaining to the Aquatic Conservation Strategy (ACS), and the removal of the Survey and Manage provision from the Coos Bay District Resource Management Plan (RMP).
