JUNEAU— The USDA Forest Service – Alaska Region is seeking public input on proposed outdoor recreation and infrastructure projects for 2022 and feedback on project ideas for 2023 through 2025. Those projects may include work on cabins, campgrounds, trailheads, trails, roads, bridges, parking areas, visitor centers, day-use areas, boat ramps, marine facilities, and picnic areas.

The public’s review and feedback on projects submitted by both the Chugach and Tongass National Forests are important for project review and selection.

“We want to hear from Alaskans on which projects should take priority,” said Regional Forester Dave Schmid. “We are looking forward to compiling input on proposed projects and gathering ideas for future ones.”

The Forest Service hopes a variety of stakeholders, including the public, partners, tribes, and Alaska Native corporations, will help it identify needed work on outdoor projects.

The proposals vary in size and location and focus on projects that repair existing sites and facilities, possibly remove those that no longer meet public needs, and allow for additional infrastructure.

An online, interactive map feature will be available for public comments starting October 22, 2020 and will continue through November 3, 2020.  More information and online links will be provided on how to share feedback on proposed and potential projects as the public engagement period draws closer.
