About 100 people attended a Forest Service meeting Friday at Baker High School, and the possibility that the agency will close roads to motor vehicles was a major topic of concern.

Friday’s meeting was one of several “objection resolution” meetings Forest Service officials scheduled after they received more than 350 objections to the revised management plans for the three Blue Mountains national forests, released in late June.

Those plans are intended to replace the 1990 management guidelines for the Wallowa-Whitman, Umatilla and Malheur national forests.

The day-long meeting included nine separate sessions, each covering different topics including access, timber and vegetation management, fire and fuels management and livestock grazing.

The sessions were overseen by one of three Forest Service officials: Reviewing Officer Chris French and two associate deputy chiefs, Allen Rowley and Jenn Eberling.
