One of the major items announced at the recent North Fork Interlocal meeting was the impending first public release of the proposed revision to the Flathead Forest plan on March 6. This will be followed by a public meeting on March 17 . . .
The Flathead National Forest is expected to release the proposed action for a new Forest Plan early next month.
The target date for publication is March 6, Forest officials told North Fork residents last week during a North Fork Interlocal Agreement meeting.
The first public meeting on the Forest Plan is scheduled for March 17 in Kalispell. Forest officials will take public comments for 45 days and then release a draft document with different alternatives in 2015. The final plan is expected to be completed in late 2016.
