Truckee, Calif. May 14, 2018 – The Tahoe National Forest will host an Over-Snow Vehicle Use Designation ‘Open House’ public meeting in Truckee on May 16. For the specific meeting time and location, please see below.

The Forest Service recently released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Tahoe National Forest Over-Snow Vehicle (OSV) Use Designation Project.

With this Project, the Forest Service is proposing to designate snow trails and areas for public OSV use on the Tahoe National Forest. The Forest Service will also identify snow trails where grooming for public OSV use would occur within the Tahoe National Forest.

The Notice of Availability for the DEIS was published in the Federal Register on April 13, 2018. The Notice of Availability initiated a 45-day public comment period on the DEIS. The Forest Service encourages public review of the DEIS alternative descriptions, maps, and environmental analyses.

The DEIS is available online at the Tahoe National Forest website at Comments must be provided in writing.  Specific instructions for submitting comments can be found within the DEIS.
