The Santa Fe National Forest (Forest) is soliciting public input on a proposed forest restoration project in the mountains near Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Mountains Landscape Resiliency (SFMLR) project is designed to restore forest and watershed health and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire on approximately 50,000 acres of the Forest.
The Forest has scheduled two public meetings during the scoping period for Forest Service staff to provide an overview of the SFMLR project, including the development of the proposal, forest composition and structure, fire and fuels, watersheds, wildlife habitat, cultural resources and inventoried roadless areas.
Comments received by July 10, 2019 will help determine the scope of the SFMLR project's analysis, as well as help the Forest identify key issues to be considered during environmental analysis. After considering comments, the Forest will prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) to disclose the environmental impacts of the project.
The scoping document is now available on the project webpage.
