The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests’ initial scoping period for forest plan revision has been extended by 30 days; comments will now be most helpful if submitted by June 2, 2018. The GMUG is currently requesting feedback on the scoping material, which includes three initial elements of the Revised Forest Plan:

  • Key Needs for Change
  • Vision and Distinctive Role and Contribution of the GMUG
  • Proposed management area framework
“In an effort to ensure ample opportunity for the public to review and provide input on the plan elements, we’ve decided to extend the scoping period,” said Samantha Staley, GMUG forest planner. “Public engagement is a key element in the revision process and this extension should help us further meaningful public dialogue.”

The scoping material, Scoping Guide, information on how to comment, and other helpful resources can be found on the planning website at, or contact the planning team at for more information.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
