January 2017 Powersport News

The next Land Allocation Committee meeting will be Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. in McCall, ID.

The meeting will be held in the basement conference room at Idaho First Bank, 475 Deinhard Lane in McCall, ID.

The topic is ATV, UTV and equestrian use on the Payette National Forest.

Guest speakers include David Claiborne, president of the Idaho State ATV Association, Mark Wood, president of the McCall Snowmobile and ATV Club, Todd Wernex with the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation and Bob Wagner with the Backcountry Horsemen of Idaho.

Presenters will discuss current recreational uses on the Payette and potential ways to improve current Forest Service designations.

The meeting is sponsored by the Payette Forest Coalition (PFC), a collaborative group working to build diverse community support for forest restoration projects on the Payette National Forest.

The PFC formed a Land Allocation Committee to review current land designations, assess what is and is not working and develop recommendations. The group is hosting a series of listening sessions to hear from various stakeholders on their perspectives on land management designations.

The meeting is open to all members of the public. The PFC has not recommended any changes from the current status.

Everyone is also encouraged to join the PFC meeting scheduled the following day at the Payette Forest Supervisor’s office. See the agenda.
