Earlier this month, the DNR hosted an open house to encourage the public to get involved in state forest planning for Alpena, Cheboygan, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties.
For more efficient oversight, the DNR divides each forest management unit into smaller units, or “compartments.” At the open house, folks had the opportunity to comment on proposed management activities and special conservation areas for compartments in Alpena, Ossineke and Wellington townships (Alpena County); Benton and Grant townships (Cheboygan County); Albert, Briley, Hillman, Montmorency and Vienna townships (Montmorency County), and Allis, Bearinger, Bismark, Krakow, Moltke and Rogers townships (Presque Isle County).
Next month, the DNR will finalize the management plans at the compartment review, which will be held Thursday, Aug. 11, at 9 a.m. at the Tri-Township Fire Department Hall, 11700 M-32 West, in Atlanta, Michigan.
Earlier this month, the Michigan DNR issued a news release with details about the upcoming compartment review in Atlanta. That meeting location has since changed, and the updated release with new location details is available below. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Maps and information regarding proposed management activities (treatments) can be found atwww.michigan.gov/forestry. Compartment Review Packets for the 2018 year of entry can be found by selecting the ‘Find a Forest’ button and clicking the ‘Atlanta’ button on the map.
Anyone with a disability that requires accommodations to attend the meeting should contact Cody Stevens,StevensC@michigan.gov or 989-785-4251, ext. 5240, at least five business days prior to the meeting.
Those unable to attend the meeting are encouraged to submit comments via email to Cody Stevens using the subject line ‘Atlanta Forest Management Unit compartment review comment.’ All comments must be received at least three days before the meeting.
