Dear Dinkey Collaborative members and interested parties,

This email provides information on the Bald Mountain Proposed Action planning matrix and the associated revised due date for members to submit proposed text.

1.  PROPOSED ACTION PLANNING MATRIX
The attached matrix provides a structure for members to submit proposed text on the topics for further discussion identified during our November 15 meeting (meadows, road decommissioning, vegetation, wildlife habitat, and the Reese Unit).  There is also space for members to submit proposed text on other parts of the Proposed Action, and preliminary silviculture prescription descriptions, if they desire.  More information and instructions are found in the document itself.  Please let me know if you have any trouble opening or using it.

2.  REVISED DUE DATE FOR MEMBERS TO SUBMIT PROPOSED TEXT
Recognizing that today is December 14, we are requesting:


  • Members submit proposed text via the matrix no later than close of business on Friday, December 28, two weeks from today.
  • The facilitator distributes the composite matrix with all members' proposed text on Monday, December 31.
  • Members submit questions for other members who have proposed text no later than close of business on Friday, January 4.  Send these to the facilitator, who will send them to the proposer and also keep a full list for the group.
  • The rest of the dates remain the same — we have technical webinars on January 8 and 10 (both from 9 am to 12 noon), and two in person technical meetings on Wednesday, January 16 (9 am to 12 noon, 1 pm to 4 pm), and a full Collaborative meeting on January 17, from approximately 10 am to 3 pm, etc.  We are not yet sure what topics will be covered during which technical sessions, as we are scheduling around Chris Stermer and Craig Thompson.  A revised schedule document is attached, for your records.


We recognize that the revised dates provide less time for members to review the text that other members propose, and to review any questions of clarification asked by other members.  However, we felt it was more important to provide members with time to review the matrix and develop their proposed text.

Sincerely,

Dorian Fougères, Ph.D.

Dear Colleagues, In working with one of our members I clarified the following: If you disagree with what another member has proposed in Section 1, but you agree with what the Forest has originally provided on this topic, you do not need to submit text that refutes the other member's proposal. You support what the Forest has provided, and that is enough. You would only provide proposed text in Section 1 if you like something that is in the other member's proposal and you have some further suggestion for text that might bridge the gap between their idea and the Forest's original text. If you have further questions when looking at the matrix, please contact me, there are probably other people that share your question, and I can then provide further clarification to the group.

The attached are my comments submitted in response to the call for comments. I have no issues with the Forest Service proposed treatments. I do have concerns within SECTION 1: PLANNING TOPICS AND ISSUES, INCLUDING EXISTING MEMBER PROPOSALS. and have annotated the document and returned it to the facilitator.
