    As most of you know, on May 10, 2000 the Forest Service issued the proposed
    rule to prohibit road construction and reconstruction in Roadless Areas and
    its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The proposed rule is
    referred to as the Roadless Area Conservation Rule (we used to call it the
    Permanent Road Moratorium).

    Two rounds of public meetings have been planned. The first of the meeting,
    be held in May, will introduce the public to the DEIS and the proposed rule.
    The second round of meeting, to be held in June, will be held specifically to
    receive oral comments about the DEIS and the rule.

    The first round of meeting in May have already begun. To find out where and
    when a meeting is being held in your state, please go to: You will find a place on
    right side of your screen to enter your state name. If your state name does
    not appear in the list, then a meeting is not being held in your state. For
    instance, if you live in Maryland, and want to find a meeting, you will have
    to travel to some other state such as Virginia or to Washington D.C. for a
    meeting. If you do not have access to the Internet, please call Scott
    Project Director, U.S. Forest Service, at (703) 605-5299 for a meeting
    location near you.

    The comment deadline for the DEIS and the proposed rule is July 17, 2000. I
    will send out more information after I've carefully reviewed the DEIS and the
    proposed rule.

    Very truly yours,

    Thanks once again Dan.I found 2 close to me.Unfortunately they're both in Boulder,CO which is probably one of if not the most "GREEN" cities in the U.S.A.
    Of course maybe that's a good thing to have some opposition there.
