Stacie Holmstrom, 541-575-4071,
The draft DN/FONSI is subject to an objection process
pursuant to Forest Service regulations at 36 Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR) 218. This process replaces the post-de-
cisional appeal process (36 CFR 215) used since 1993. The
new regulations (36 CFR 218) provide an opportunity for
individuals and organizations to ile an objection to a project
before the inal decision is signed. This allows interested
individuals and organizations to advise the Deciding Oicial
about concerns regarding the inal decision before the deci-
sion is made.
Objections will only be accepted from individuals and enti-
ties as deined in 36 CFR 218.2 who have previously sub-
mitted speciic written comments regarding the proposed
project during scoping or another designated opportunity for
public comment in accordance with 36 CFR 218.5(a). Issues
raised in objections must be based on previously submitted
timely, speciic written comments regarding the proposed
project unless based on new information arising after the
designated comment opportunities.
Objections, including attachments, must be iled via mail,
fax, email, hand-delivery, express delivery, or messenger
service (Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm, exclud-
ing Federal holidays). Objections may be mailed to: Regional
Forester, Objection Reviewing Oicer, Paciic Northwest
Region, USDA Forest Service, Attn: 1570 Objections, PO
Box 3623, Portland, OR 97208-3623. For emailed objec-
tions, please email to: objections-pnw-regional-oice@
fs.fed.us. Please put OBJECTION and the project name in
the subject line. Electronic objections must be submitted
as part of an actual e-mail message, or as an attachment
in Microsoft Word (.doc), rich text format (.rtf), or portable
document format (.pdf) only. For electronically mailed ob-
jections, the sender should normally receive an automated
electronic acknowledgement from the agency as conirma-
tion of receipt. If the sender does not receive an automated
acknowledgement of the receipt of the objection, it is the
sender’s responsibility to ensure timely receipt by other
means. Objections may also be hand delivered to the Paciic
Northwest Regional Oice, 1220 SW 3rd Ave., Portland,
OR 97204, between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through
Friday (excluding Federal holidays). Objections may also be
faxed to: Regional Forester, Attn: 1570: Objections at 503-
Objections must be postmarked or received by the Review-
ing Oicer, Regional Forester, within 45 days from the date
of the publication of this notice. The publication date is the
exclusive means for calculating the time to ile an objection.
Those wishing to ile an objection should not rely upon dates
or timeframe information provided by any other sources. The
regulations prohibit extending the time to ile an objection.
Speciic directions on how to ile an objection are provided
in 36 CFR 218.8. (A printed copy is available upon request.)
The objection must contain the minimum required content
requirements speciied in 36 CFR 218.8(d) and incorporation
of documents by reference is permitted only as provided in
36 CFR 218.8(b). It is the objector’s responsibility to ensure
timely iling of a written objection with the reviewing oicer
pursuant to 36 CFR 218.9. All objections are available for
public inspection during and after the objection process.
Objections will be subject to review by a “reviewing oicer,”
because the Responsible Oicial for the Starr Aspen Project
is Steve Beverlin, the Malheur National Forest Supervisor,
the reviewing oicer will be the Regional Forester.
The objection process may include an opportunity for the
objector to meet with the reviewing oicer and the respon-
sible oicial, with the objective of resolving the concerns
expressed in the objection.
The responsible oicial cannot sign the inal decision until
the reviewing oicer has responded in writing to all pending
objections, and the decision must be consistent with any in-
structions issued by the reviewing oicer. After the objection
process concludes there will be no additional opportunity for
administrative review or appeal. The inal decision will be the
inal administrative decision by the agency.
