Think the hand-wringing over the Revised White River National Forest Plan was bad? Get ready for a double-dose as Forest Supervisor Martha Ketelle is announcing that discussion is about to begin on the postponed Travel Management Plan.

The final decisions on this plan will have much to say on how bikers, hikers, motorcyclists, ATV users and others get to use the National Forest.

On top of this, Summit County Government is working on its own Winter Travel Management Plan to determine how winter enthusiasts can use county byways to get to their favorite playgrounds.

The Forest Service will hold a public meeting on the Travel Management Plan from 6-9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the Summit Middle School Auditorium.
