Received this message from the folks trying to get Timberline going:


March 5th, 2011


Friends, the end is in sight, our Preliminary Environmental Assessment is on the Forest Service website Saturday, and will legally be posted tomorrow with a notice in the Oregonian, which will begin the formal 30 day comment period. This period is extremely important in the process, due to the fact that our proposal has become “extremely contentious” in the eyes of the forest Service, due to opposition from a very vocal minority with a large network of members. Their membership is responding to their group’s inflammatory correspondence, and then giving input to the Forest Service.


Once again, we are asking for your help in getting out the word to as many folks as possible about the importance of making a comment during this period, and if possible attending an Open House on the 17th of March at the Zig Zag Ranger Station, starting at 4:00 p.m. The folks who are opposed to our project held their own open house and packed it with their members, and had it televised, so we are hoping to share our factual unbiased proposal to a house full of supporters. The basis for the opposition’s stance is based upon a general dislike of the project, an apparent strong dislike of mountain bikers and so far it is not based upon any factual issues.


The project website is located here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/mthood


And the email address for comments is:   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


This should be a strong call to action for any and all mountain bikers! Not only can we help support the growth of our sport in Oregon, but also combat some of the ignorance and general opposition that our sport faces. Please take the time to voice your support!!!
