Public Notices

 

Under the Corps' Regulatory Program, a public notice is the primary method for advising all interested parties of a proposed activity for which a permit is sought.  Public notices are also published to inform the public about new or proposed regulations, policies, guidance or permit procedures.

Public Notices published by the South Pacific Division (SPD) under the Regulatory Program are posted on this page. SPD public notices are primarily published to inform the public about new or proposed guidance, templates, procedures, and regional general permits, which are applicable to more than one of SPD's subordinate districts.  Once a public notice is available on-line, notification of the SPD Public Notice is sent to individuals on the mailing lists of the appropriate districts by each of the affected districts .

The ROD follows the issuance of a Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS), a Supplemental Information Report (SIR), and a Second SIR in July 2016. The Final EIS was prepared by the U.S. Forest Service, as the lead federal agency, to analyze the direct, indirect, and cumulative effects associated with the development of the Proposed Action and a reasonable range of alternatives. The SIRs were prepared by the U.S. Forest Service to evaluate new information, including comments, received after the publishing of the Final EIS, to determine whether any additional analyses (including a supplement to the Final EIS) were necessary for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
