SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments sought by the TNF include specific 
comments to the proposed action, appropriate information that could be 
pertinent to analysis of environmental effects, identification of 
significant issues, and identification of potential alternatives. It is 
important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in a 
manner in which they are useful to the agency's preparation of the EIS. 
Although comments are welcome at any time during the NEPA review, they 
will be most useful to us if they are received by July 18, 2016. 
Comments should clearly articulate the reviewer's concerns. Comments 
received in response to this solicitation, including names and 
addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public record for 
this proposed action. Comments submitted anonymously will be accepted 
and considered; however, anonymous comments will not provide the agency 
with the ability to provide the respondent with subsequent 
environmental documents.

    Dated: May 16, 2016.
Neil Bosworth,
Forest Supervisor.
