IRONWOOD—The Ottawa National Forest (ONF) is seeking comments on proposed OHV trail designations.
 As part of its continued efforts to provide for a high-quality, sustainable OHV trail system, the ONF is proposing to connect two state of Michigan multi-use trails on the eastern side of the Ottawa to provide a usable system for OHV travel, as well as providing a connection to the state of Michigan Bill Nicholls Trail near Mass City.


 Trail connections will be accomplished via the use of current forest system roads and other travel ways on National Forest System (NFS) lands.
 Additional information on the proposed connections is available on-line at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/ottawa/landmanagement/projects.
 To ensure that your comments on this project are received before a final decision is made, please respond by May 11. Comments will be reviewed and used to determine what topics will require detailed analysis in the environmental assessment.
 Any comments received on this proposal are part of the public record and available for public review upon request.
 Comments should be addressed to the Forest Supervisor, E6248 US Hwy. 2, Ironwood, MI 49938 or call the office at (906) 932-1330. Additionally, comments may be e-mailed to comments-eastern-ottawa@fs.fed.us.  To receive a copy of the scoping document associated with this project, call the local Forest Service office or visit: www.fs.fed.us/nepa/fs-usda-pop.php/?project=38997.
 “We look forward to hearing from you.”
