Forest Service seeks public input on planning rule directives

Friday, February 15, 2013

The U.S. Forest Service has released and is seeking public comment on the proposed 2012 Planning Rule Directives, the key set of agency guidance documents that will direct implementation of the 2012 Planning Rule. NASF and CWSF are reviewing the proposed directives and will be providing a response.

The proposed directives will help the Forest Service achieve the vision articulated in the 2012 Planning Rule – to develop, revise and amend land management plans that protect and restore National Forests and Grasslands for the benefit of communities, natural resources and the environment.

A copy of the proposed directives, along with background information, can be obtained on the Forest Service website, at any regional Forest Service office, or by calling (202) 205-1449.
