NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-S060-2014-0006-EA  Environmental Assessment / FONSI
Document Publish Date: 6/09/2014
Summary: The Bureau of Land Management, Tillamook Resource Area, has prepared an Environmental Assessment/draft FONSI to document the effects of amending reciprocal right-of-way agreement S-905 between BLM and Stimson Lumber Company to add approximately 2,510 feet of existing BLM controlled road and approximately 590 feet of new construction. The amended roads would be used by Stimson Lumber Company to access their lands for timber harvest purposes. Since it is possible and economically feasible for Stimson Lumber Company to harvest their timber without use of BLM roads there would not be any interrelated or interdependent action between Stimson's harvest and the proposed action. The location of the proposed action is approximately nine miles west of Forest Grove, Oregon in S NE & NW SE of section 3, T1S R5W, Willamette Meridian, Washington County.

Document Publish Date: 4/25/2014
Summary: The Tillamook Resource Area has proposed a project to amend a reciprocal right-of-way agreement with Stimson Lumber Company to add road mileage in T.1S., R.5W., Sec. 3, W.M. (Scoggins Creek drainage of the Tualatin River subwatershed) to the agreement which would allow Stimson Lumber Company access to a portion of their ownership. The added road would include approximately 2500 feet of existing gravel road and approximately 600 feet of newly constructed road that would pass through 65 year old timber on BLM land. Approximately 50 merchantable trees averaging approximately 16 inches in diameter (10" -- 22" range) would be harvested to construct the road. There is no public access to the proposed project area. We would appreciate your questions, comments or concerns regarding this proposed action. Please send written comments to Karen Schank, Field Manager Tillamook Resource Area, at the address listed in the scoping letter, or by email to blm_or_sa_tillamook_mail@blm.gov, Attn: Karen Schank, by May 8, 2014.
