County Commissioners to consider alternative forest management planning process

forest-treesCounty commissioners representing Oregon counties that, in the past, deeded forestland to the state for management will meet on Friday, April 4, in Salem.

Goals of the combined Forest Trust Land Advisory Committee (FTLAC) and Council of Forestry Trust Land Counties workshop agenda include:

* Reviewing the alternative forest management planning process to date
* Developing criteria for acceptable outcomes of an alternative forest management plan
* Identifying ideas for agreement with the Board of Forestry decision in the fall of 2014
* Reviewing draft proposals being considered for county revenue distribution

The meeting will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Oregon Department of Forestry headquarters in the Tillamook Room – Building C, 2600 State St., in Salem.

FTLAC meetings are open to the public, and an opportunity for public comment is scheduled for 2:15 p.m.

The FTLAC is a legally mandated committee of county commissioners representing counties that deeded lands to the state. The committee advises the Board of Forestry on matters in which counties may have a responsibility related to forestland managed by ODF.

Counties depend on revenue generated from management activities on these lands. The revenue is used primarily for local schools and also helps fund county government and local taxing districts.

The FTLAC is made up of seven members representing the 15 counties that have state forest land within their county boundaries. The trust counties include: Benton, Clackamas, Clatsop, Columbia, Coos, Douglas, Josephine, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Polk, Tillamook and Washington.
