Share Colorado Roadless Rule Meetings

Event Details

As you may already know, the US Forest Service released the Proposed Colorado Roadless Rule on April 15, 2011.  The proposed rule, associated documents, and additional information about the rule development process can be found on the Forest Service Region 2 Website at 

There will be a number of public forums around the country regarding the proposed rule.  The Rocky Mountain Regional Forest Service Office will be hosting nine such forums around the state and in Washington, DC. The dates and locations of the forums are listed below. 

All of these forums will have three basic purposes:

  • To increase public understanding about the draft rule;
  • To explain how input gathered from the public during the scoping process is incorporated into the design of the rule; and
  • To respond to questions from the audience.

While the forums should assist attendees in making more informed comments, we will not be taking oral public comments on the proposed rule at the forums.  This format is based on input we heard from a diversity of stakeholders on how best to design these meetings. Nor will the agency be recording the forums for inclusion in the rulemaking record. As with any rulemaking, attendees wishing to provide comments for the record will need to submit them in writing. 

Public Comment

The Proposed Roadless Rule was published in the April 15, 2011, Federal Register, kicking off a 90-day public comment period ending on July 14, 2011. To be considered, written comments need to be submitted.

The US Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution and Meridian Institute

US Insitute for Environmental Conflict Resolution

Congress established the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution in 1998. The U.S. Institute's mission is to help resolve environmental disputes that involve the federal government, by providing mediation, training and related services.

Included within the term "environmental" disputes are conflicts related to the environment, public lands and natural resources. Congress also directed the U.S. Institute to work to further the implementation of our National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) by providing negotiation, mediation, and other settlement efforts as alternatives to litigation.

Congress placed the U.S. Institute within the Udall Foundation. The Foundation is an independent federal agency based in Tucson, Arizona. As a result, the U.S. Institute is part of the federal government - but it is completely independent of all other federal agencies. Congressional sponsors of the legislation creating the Institute thought it was appropriate for it to be part of the Udall Foundation, as Sen. John McCain said, because Morris Udall's career "was distinguished by his integrity, service and commitment to consensus-building."
