The Blue Dollar Complex Grazing Allotments Project on the Prairie City Ranger District entered the 45-day objection period for the Final Environmental Assessment and the Draft Decision Notice Sept. 20.

The project planning area is about 25 miles south of Prairie City in Grant and Harney counties, and encompasses just over 40,000 acres of National Forest System lands. The draft decision would authorize grazing on three grazing allotments, modify grazing practices, change pasture and allotment boundaries and add structures and improvements to meet the purpose and need to reflect current management direction, policies, other applicable laws and regulations and to address resource concerns to achieve desired conditions.

For specific directions on how to file an objection, along with complete details for this project, access the Forest Service website at fs.usda.gov/project/?project=48798 or request a copy by contacting Marion Mahaffey, range NEPA coordinator, at 541-575-3302 or by emailing comments-pacificnorthwest-malheur-prairiecity@fs.fed.us.

Objections concerning the project must be postmarked or received by the reviewing officer within 45 days from the date of the publication of the legal notice. All objections are available for public inspection during and after the objection process.

For more information, contact Mahaffey.
