Finding of No Significant Impact,Decision Record DOI-BLM-OR-P040-2011-0022-EA Planning Completed
The Prineville District of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impacts (FONSI) for the proposed Priest Hole Site Plan (DOI-BLM-ORP000-2011-0022-EA). The actions included in this Decision Record were analyzed in that EA, and will occur on public land in the Priest Hole area 12 air miles northwest of Mitchell, Oregon within the project area shown on maps in the EA. The EA considered alternate ways to improve camping and day use opportunities, improve water quality, and improve neotropical bird breeding habitat conditions and deer and elk forage.

Environmental Assessment DOI-BLM-OR-P040-2011-0022-EA Planning Completed
The comment period on this Environmental Assessment (EA) ended August 24, 2012. The BLM is re-publishing the EA with the Decision Record (DR) and signed Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). After careful analysis of effects and consideration of public input on the EA, the BLM has decided to implement a scaled-down version of the original proposed action. As a result, the project will not develop any designated campsites, will not close any roads, and will not add a trash dumpster to the area. The BLM will install a temporary restroom (port-a-potty) while gaining public input on the best location for a permanent vault toilet. Once a site is identified for the permanent toilet, a gravel parking area will be developed to allow pull-through trailer access. The decision also includes modifications for the food and cover crop plots and irrigation for the fields. Please see the Decision Record for further information on the selected alternative.
