Public Scoping
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cascades Field Office, Northwest Oregon District Office (previously the Salem District Office) is considering the Bi-County Timber Management Project (Bi-County) located in Township 6 South, Range 1 East, Sections 13 and 25, and Township 7 South, Range 2 East, Sections 9, 15, 23, 27, and 33. The Bi-County project is located in Marion and Clackamas Counties, Oregon, within the Abiqua-Pudding Creek, Butte-Pudding Creek, and Rock Creek 5th field Watersheds. Approximately 705 acres of 40 to 130 year old conifer stands are proposed for regeneration harvest and commercial thinning. This area analyzed will be divided into multiple timber sales for implementation.  

The BLM is currently undergoing public scoping on the proposed project. Maps and public scoping information can be found under the "Documents" and "Maps" sections to the left. The input you provide will help an interdisciplinary team of BLM natural resource specialists to develop design features for the project and to assess the potential environmental effects. Most areas proposed for treatment are currently behind locked gates.  BLM can provide escorted public access to these areas.  Please contact John Huston at 503-315-5969 to schedule access.  

Written comments may be sent to John Huston, Cascades Field Manager, BLM Northwest Oregon District, 1717 Fabry Road SE, Salem, Oregon, 97306, or submitted by email to jhuston@blm.gov. Comments may also be submitted under the “Documents” section to the left side. Comments may be submitted by close of business on April 13th, 2017. Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the Northwest Oregon District Office during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays, and may be published as part of environmental analysis documents or related correspondence.

Individual respondents may request confidentiality.  If you wish to withhold your name or street address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your written comment.  Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by law.  All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public inspection in their entirety.
