Building a Forest Plan by Using Issues to Structure the Process
The Targhee National Forest in Idaho has completed a proposed land-management plan by a method in which issues elicited in public meetings became the basis for formulating alternatives. Decision criteria that were subsequently used for selecting a preferred alternative were tied directly to issues. A process called trade-off evaluation procedure was used to compare alternatives. A series of briefing guides set the stage for public meetings, kept the public up to date, and presented results of steps in the process.
