Wallowa-Whitman extends comment period for Road Plan maps

The Wallowa-Whitman National Forest has extended the public comment period for the forest's maps showing existing roads and trails.

The maps, released earlier this year, are part of the Wallowa-Whitman's controversial effort to adopt a new Travel Management Plan, which likely will prohibit motorized vehicles (except snowmobiles) from some roads where vehicles are allowed now.

The public now has until March 31, 2015, to submit comments on the maps the Wallowa-Whitman unveiled in August of this year.

Initially the period during which the public can review the maps and provide corrections was slated to end during November.

An ordinance allows the city to bill property owners for the cost of weed and/or property abatement performed by the city or its contractor. The city has done that on all 16 properties.

But the Council has to pass a resolution before before liens can be recorded on the properties.
