Decision Record OR080-06-12 Planning Completed
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has conducted an environmental analysis for the McFall Creek Density Management (DM) Project 1, which is documented in the McFall/Potter Creek Density Management and Aquatic Habitat Restoration Environmental Assessment (EA# OR080-06-12) and the associated project file. The proposed action is to thin 317 acres of 72 to 79-year-old conifer stands within Adaptive Management Areas (AMA) and Riparian Reserve (RR) Land Use Allocations (LUAs) within the Northern Coast Range Adaptive Management Area (NCAMA). A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was signed on November 20, 2007 and the EA and FONSI were then made available for public review. The decision documented in this Decision Rationale (DR) is based on the analysis documented in the EA. This decision authorizes the implementation of only those activities directly related to and included within the McFall Creek timber sale.
