Forest plan draws opposition from many

Casual observers probably should be granted some latitude when they draw an admittedly spontaneous conclusion after a glance at the Blue Mountain Forest Plan Revision. The massive 1,300-page plus tome looks imposing. At the very least, it looks complicated. For anyone who holds the weighty document in both hands, its very size conjures up intricate and thorny images of governmental acronyms and complex science with difficult translation.

Yet for many people in the eastern region of Oregon — especially for a fair-sized number of elected officials — there isn’t much that’s complicated about the plan’s reception. Plain and simple, many homegrown politicians — not to mention a number of concerned citizens — see the blueprint as a failure. 

In short, they don’t like it. 

Not one bit.
