    Help keeping Georgia FS roads open... input needed by April 13, 2012

    *URGENT* Hi everybody, I'd like to ask a favor of any and all of you who enjoy riding on ANY of the Forest Service Roads here in GA, or if you know someone who does, and don't want to see something they enjoy being closed. This includes, but definitely not limited to, Trey Mountain, Chattahoochee River/Low Gap Road, BEASLEY KNOB, Wildcat Creek/Lake Burton area, Coleman River/Persimmon Road, etc...etc...etc...

    The Forest Service has cut the funding for some of these areas, or had it cut, rather, and is wanting to know what YOU think about the fact that they may close, either permanently or yearly, some of these areas/roads. I for one do not want to see ANY of these areas closed, at all, but if they don't get people saying that they are against it, and why they like using these areas, then that's exactly what will happen.

    PLEASE go to the following link, and click on the headline that says 'Forest Service Seeks Your Input' and leave a comment, either a general one, or on specific areas that you enjoy, and want to stay open! I even said that in some of the areas where camping is free, they could do like Boggs Creek was, and charge a small nightly fee, or do like Beasley, charge something like a $5 daily fee to use some of the areas that require upkeep. Let them know what you think!! These comments need to be in by APRIL 13th, so check it out & comment ASAP!! Thanks!!

    Forest Service Seeks Your Input
    Road System Study set to begin on the Chattahoochee National Forest


    The Forest Service is committed to balancing your needs for access to the Chattahoochee National Forest with our responsibility to sustain a productive, diverse and healthy forest. As part of this commitment, we must address crucial concerns about the future sustainability of the national forest road system. The three Ranger Districts that make up the Chattahoochee National Forest are beginning a study of the road system, and we need your input.

    This transportation study will help us find a way to use our limited resources to balance the needs for access to the forest with the protection of clean water and a healthy forest. The transportation study is not a proposal or decision, but is intended to help guide us in planning future road management.

    The number of overdue road maintenance projects continues to grow, while public use of our roads is increasing. Roads that cannot be adequately maintained can be dangerous to visitors and threaten forest health. They can increase sedimentation into rivers and streams, degrading water quality and impacting fish and wildlife.

    Possible options that may be considered for each road include:

    Maintaining at the current standard
    Changing the level of maintenance (ex., from passenger car to high-clearance vehicle)
    Adding seasonal restrictions
    Implementing year-long closures
    Decommissioning

    We need to hear from you by April 13

    We want to learn from you which roads are important to you and why. We will consider your input along with other factors including management access needs, benefits, risks and costs. Before any actions are taken we will provide more opportunities for you to participate in the decision making process.

    Use our online comment form to view maps and provide your input to us. You may also find hardcopy planning maps and comment forms at the local Ranger District and Forest Supervisor's offices. We will consider all comments received before April 13, after which the official comment period for this first phase of the study will close. Your input is very valuable to us, and we thank you in advance for your time and thoughtful comments.
