From page A3 | April 12, 2011 |

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE – The Lake Tahoe Federal Advisory Committee is accepting public comment on capital projects and science themes that have been recommended for funding to help restore the Lake Tahoe Basin ecosystem, using Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act Round 12 funds.

A total of 25 project proposals were received, addressing federal vision focus areas: watershed and habitat improvement, forest health and air quality and transportation. Proposed Round 12 science themes are: forest health, watershed, water quality and habitat restoration, air quality and integrating science.

The Lake Tahoe Federal Advisory Committee is made up of representatives of a broad array of constituencies concerned with the environmental and economic health of the Lake Tahoe Region. One key role of LTFAC is to facilitate the integration and coordination of appropriate federal programs and funds to help achieve the goals of the Lake Tahoe Basin Environmental Improvement Program.

“LTFAC encourages everyone with an interest in the health of the Lake Tahoe Basin to take a look at the proposals and share your comments,” said Jeff Marsolais, designated forest official. “Public comment plays a key role in helping us make the best possible recommendations for Lake Tahoe SNPLMA projects.”

A list of projects can be viewed by visiting fs.usda.gov/goto/ltbmu/SNPLMA_R12 or tiims.org. The public is asked to comment on the Preliminary Recommendation Package by the close of business on May 9. Comments may be submitted by e-mail to: comments-pacificsouthwest-ltbmu@fs.fed.us, or by regular mail (must be received by close of business on May 9) to Linda Lind, 35 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe 96150.

LTFAC will review and discuss comments at its next meeting and develop final funding recommendations.
