The PSI is seeking comments from individuals, organizations, and local, state, and federal agencies that may be interested in or affected by this travel management EIS process. Comments may pertain to the potential alternatives and nature or scope of the environmental, social, and economic issues. Best practices for providing substantive comments are provided here.
The scoping comment period originally ran 45 days from the publication of the NOI on July 25 to September 8, 2016; however, the PSI decided to extend the public comment period to 60 days. The revised comment period ended on September 23, 2016. While the scoping period has ended, the PSI will accept comments at any point throughout the NEPA process. There are several ways to provide input, including:
- Provide comments using the Forest Service's Project, Appeals, and Litigation System (PALS) website
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org. If submitting attachments, acceptable file types include PDF, Microsoft Word, and rich text format.
- Write comments to:
Pike & San Isabel National Forests
2840 Kachina Dr. Pueblo, CO 81008
- Fax comments to 719-553-1440 with PSI Travel Management in the subject line.
- Individuals who use telecommunication devices for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339 Monday through Friday between 8 AM and 8 PM, Eastern Standard Time.
All comments, including names and addresses when provided, are placed in the administrative record and will be available for public inspection and copying. Once the scoping report is completed in early 2017, the public may inspect a summary of scoping comments.
