Forest service to hold meeting for input on plans

MANCHESTER- The US Forest Service is hosting an open house public meeting for anyone interested to learn about the proposed Somerset Integrated Resource Project located on the Green Mountain National Forest, Manchester ranger district.
The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 2,  from 6 to 8 pm at Stratton Mountain Resort. The project area includes just over 71,000 acres primarily within the towns of Dover, Glastenbury, Searsburg, Somerset, Stratton, Wilmington, and Woodford, but also includes small portions of Sunderland and Wardsboro.  
The Forest Service is interested in hearing from the public to help identify specific land management activities to implement on National Forest lands such as timber harvesting, enhancement of wildlife habitat, soil and stream restoration, and improvements to roads and trails. Further development of activities will occur throughout the summer culminating in the initiation of a final proposed action and environmental analysis in the fall. Actual implementation would occur in 2020 over a five-to-seven year period pending the completion of an environmental assessment.
