An advisory committee intended to enhance local community collaboration with federal officials who manage the Superior National Forest will convene for the first time on June 11, 2010, the U.S. Forest Service announced recently.
The Superior Resource Advisory Committee’s purpose, according to USFS officials, is “to enhance local community collaboration with federal land managers by jointly proposing, reviewing, and making recommendations regarding proposed projects that will benefit resources on National Forest System lands in Cook, Lake and St. Louis Counties.”
The purpose of the first meeting of the newly-formed committee will be to orient the new Superior RAC members on their roles and responsibilities. In addition, the committee will elect officers, develop rules and operational guidelines; and discuss a public forum on submitting project proposals.
The meeting is open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to call ahead to 218-626-4300 to facilitate entry into the building.
Written comments should be sent to Superior National Forest, RAC, 8901 Grand Avenue Place, Duluth, MN 55808. Comments may also be sent via email to r9_superior_NF@fs.fed.us or via facsimile to 218-626-4312.
