Title: 16 Road forest health project environmental assessment, decision notice and finding of no significant impact
Author: Prairie City Ranger District (Or.)
Abstract: Environmental assessment proposes to take action on hazardous fuel reduction and related needs along the 16 Road area forested public travel corridor identified in the Grant County Community Fire Protection Plan as containing a fire evacuation route from an "at-risk community." Decision Notice announces implementation of Alternative 2 of the project EA, including both noncommercial and commercial thinning using low-thinning methods to remove mid-level trees which contribute to crown fire potential or bark beetle risk, up to 21 inches in diameter at breast height.
Description: 158 pp. Tables, maps, references, appendices. "The 16 Road Project Area is located approximately 37 road miles from the cities of John Day/Canyon City and 26 miles from Prairie City. The Federal Register identifies all three cities as at risk to urban interface fires. Between these Cities and the 16 Road Project are many homes with outbuildings, ranches, and cabins. Many of these dwellings are directly adjacent or intermingled with National Forest lands. The highest concentrations of homes interfacing with the National Forest are located along Highway 395 (South of John Day/Canyon City), County Road 65 (along Canyon Creek – South of John Day/Canyon City), and County Road 62 (South of Prairie City)." Captured June 10, 2008.
