Document Publish Date: 11/22/2013
Summary: The Grants Pass Resource Area is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA). The EA will document potential effects of the Douglas Fire Complex Recovery project within policies set forth in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Field Manager for the Grants Pass Resource Area is seeking public input during this scoping period to help identify any issues or concerns specific to this project. The Douglas Complex fires burned primarily within the Late Successional Reserve (LSR) Land Use Allocation (LUA) on the South River Resource Area, Roseburg District and within the Matrix LUA on the Grants Pass Resource Area, Medford District. The Grants Pass Resource Area is proposing activities within the fire perimeter designated as Matrix and Riparian Reserve. The Douglas Fire Complex Recovery project will be analyzing actions to address road hazards, public and forest worker safety, fuels mitigation and salvage as set forth by the Medford District RMP, Record of Decision 1995.
