These meetings are the best opportunity to give your road information to the forest. "This travel management planning :is required by our Washington office. It will end cross-country OHV travel and will be completed by the end of 2008," said Stan Sylva, Modoc forest supervisor. the end of this process, we will have a free map of roads and trails open to motorized vehicles." "The input we receive at these open houses will be we used to craft our alternatives and proposed action," added Joyce Thompson, forest plan- ner. "Without public input, we may :miss important roads and destinations that people use. We need their infbrma, tion to ensure a travel 'plan that fits .the needs :and desires of our community," Information about the process as well as printable maps of all system and non- system roads are on line at ation/ohv/route-designa- tion/route-designation.shtml A good way to bring infor- mation to an open house is to draw it on a map printed from this website.
