Responding to requests by U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Washington, the U.S. Forest Service plans additional “listening sessions” to accept public comment on the ongoing study of the Northwest Forest Plan.
With the main topic being the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie and Olympic national forests, a listening session is slated from 6-8 p.m. April 28 at Blakely Hall, 2550 N.E. Park Drive, Issaquah. The Issaquah session is meant to solicit public opinion on what changes to the Northwest Forest Plan might be needed, said Kelly Spute, a spokesman for the Forest Service.
