To demonstrate the feasibility of coordinated land use and stable, permanent forest community development, an area of 115,000 acres above Norris Dam has been selected for development as a forest working circle. Long range management plans are now in preparation on the basis of detailed land classification and special volume and growth and economic studies. Provision is being made for timber production, grazing, crop production, fish and game production, and recreation. A number of forest worker settlement areas have already been located, and one of them is now being developed.
