District hosts Hanna Flats public hearing

Print Article

NORDMAN — The Priest Lake Ranger District is holding a public meeting this month to discuss the Hanna Flats Good Neighbor Authority Project, a forest health and hazardous fuels reduction plan.

The meeting is set for 6 p.m. Thursday, April 13, at the Priest Lake Ranger Station, 32203 Highway 57.

The project is being proposed to address resource needs in the area related to forest health, hazardous fuels, and the production of forest products. Using the Good Neighbor Authority in the 2014 Farm Bill allows the Forest Service to utilize personnel and resources from the Idaho Department of Lands to increase the pace and scale of forest restoration. IDL will assist with the development and implementation of the Hanna Flats GNA project in alignment with the Idaho Panhandle National Forests’ land management objectives.

The meeting is open to the public and development of the project is designed to be a collaborative effort. Forest Service Acting Priest Lake District Ranger Cameron Rasor and Idaho Department of Lands area manager Mick Schanilec invite all interested to attend the meeting to learn more about how the Forest Service and IDL are working together under the Good Neighbor Authority on the project.

Additional information about the project (including a map) can be found on the project webpage at fs.usda.gov/projects/ipnf/landmanagement/ projects (look for the Hanna Flats GNA link). Please direct any questions to David Cobb, project team leader, at dcobb@fs.fed.us or 208-443-6854
