GOLETA, CA – Los Padres National Forest officials will hold two public open houses next week to share information and answer questions on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for a Proposed Amendment to its Land Management Plan.

An east zone meeting will be held Tuesday, April 9, at the Mt. Pinos Ranger District office located at 34580 Lockwood Valley Road in Frazier Park from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. A west zone meeting will be held Wednesday, April 10, in the Southern California Edison building at 103 David Love Place in Goleta from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

Meetings will begin with an open house where Forest Service staff will be available to answer questions about the Draft SEIS. A brief presentation will begin 30 minutes after the meeting opens, followed by an opportunity to ask questions. The environmental impact statement analyzes the proposal to modify the existing land use zones allocations in selected inventoried roadless areas to include more back country non-motorized and recommended wilderness areas. The environmental impact statement can be found on the project webpage at: http://www.fs.fed.us/nepa/nepa_project_exp.php?project=35130

This Proposed Amendment to the Land Management Plan is part of the Settlement Agreement approved January 3, 2011, in the case of California Resources Agency, et al vs. United States Department of Agriculture, and Center for Biological Diversity, et al vs. United States Department of Agriculture.

The public is encouraged to participate in the process. Comments should be received within 90 days of the publication of the Notice of Availability in the Federal Register. The Notice was published on Friday, February 15, 2013, and the comment period closes on Thursday, May 16, 2013.
