Each year the Oregon Department of Forestry invites public comment on work plans, called Annual Operations Plans (AOPs), outlining state forest activities. Through May 4, public comments are invited for ODF’s district activities for the 2018 fiscal year, which starts July 1, 2017.
These plans describe specific activities such as timber sales, reforestation, road building, stream enhancement, and recreation projects. Two districts have also noted Forest Land Management Classification changes within their draft AOPs that are also open to public comment.
Public Comment Details
The draft annual operations plans are available for review at http://www.oregon.gov/ODF/Working/Pages/StateForests.aspx. After the comment period closes, each district will review comments and finalize their AOPs.
An online survey for submitting AOP comments is at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TFHH8TK
