Re: Coconino National Forest introducing new motor vehicle use map -- need support!
I really don't want to get in a pissing match with you over what I am going to post, but this needs to be aired out. And this will illustrate why many of us feel the way we do.
Here's the response from the Coconino TMP on many motorized access issues:
We do not agree that there is any need or
requirement for an equal number of
motorized and non-motorized routes or
access opportunities on the Forest.
With this comment, many of us feel that we are basically second class citizens when it comes to a TMP. And no matter what issues we bring up, we are largely going to be ignored in order for the USFS to implement what they want, not what the public wants as is required. This little gem right here is what has led to the Tahoe lawsuit and the Sante Fe lawsuit and is most likely going to lead ot many more lawsuits.
Until this the attitude of the USFS in regards to us changes, there will be a constant string if problems.
Bachelor Degree in Environmental Science and showing who does the real damage is my game.
