JACKSON, Wyo. — The Bridger-Teton National Forest has extended the comment period on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Snow King Mountain’s on-mountain improvements.
Comments will now be accepted until March 31.
The original deadline was March 16.
Jackson town councilors expressed frustration with the Forest Service last week and agreed to send a letter asking for more options and more time to digest the 255-page document.
“I have heard from a few members of the community that the extra time to comment would be useful,” said Acting Jackson District Ranger Rob Hoelscher. “I am interested in making certain that all work on this project is transparent and our specialists want to answer any lingering questions that may need to be addressed,” he said.
The Jackson Ranger District will hold an open house for the public on Wednesday, March 18 for an opportunity to look at the Draft EIS and visit with specialists from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The open house will be held at the Jackson Ranger District Office at 340 N. Cache.
