Dear Dinkey Collaborative members and interested parties,
Attached is a revised Bald Mountain planning matrix that incorporates the results of the five technical meetings we had in January on this effort. The revision includes for quick reference the main concerns, negotiated text (where applicable), and straw polls taken during the meetings. Crucially, it also includes for each section "Recommended text from the facilitator." This was my best effort to turn the concerns and straw poll information into text to recommend to the Forest. Where members proposed text on the same topic but had distinctly different recommendations, the recommended text includes more than one option for the particular topic in question.
1. FINAL REVIEW FOR ACCURACY REQUESTED BY COB NEXT MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11
By close of business on Monday, February 11, I would appreciate your review. I am seeking to make sure that the recommended text is technically accurate and clear, AND to make sure that the options that people need to feel secure that their recommendations are represented. Please send any comments to me directly.
2. SUPPLEMENTAL ATTACHMENTS
There are three supplemental documents attached to this email because they are referenced in the matrix. Due to their length, I did not cut and paste them into the matrix, but they provide the details necessary to understand the proposals mentioned. The three documents are the joint proposal for two 200-acre areas of snag creation by Mark Smith and Justin Augustine, the November 14 vegetation and wildlife proposal from Justin Augustine and Chad Hanson, and the supplemental information on this proposal from Justine Augustine and Chad Hanson provided on January 4.
3. NEXT STEPS: FINAL MATRIX ON FEBRUARY 12, FINAL INDIVIDUAL RECOMMENDATIONS ON FEBRUARY 19
Once I get this final feedback, I will make revisions and distribute a final matrix on Tuesday, February 12. This will be the version that members use to indicate their individual recommendations at the full Collaborative meeting on Tuesday, February 19, and will include the actual layout that allows people to indicate their recommendations for each point.
