Tell Forest Service what roads you use

The Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest is hosting a series of meetings to get input on what roads should be maintained. The forest has about 2,500 miles of roads — from the Canadian border to Mount Rainier National Park — but can only afford to maintain about a quarter of them.

The second to last meeting is Tuesday at the Monroe Public Library. This meeting may be your last chance to give your opinion in person. There is also a meeting Oct. 9 in Everett, but all of the spots have been claimed by RSVPs.

To get more information or to RSVP for Tuesday’s meeting, click here. You’ll need to send in your RSVP by the end of today. If you don’t RSVP, you can still show up, but there’s no guarantee you will get a seat. After the RSVPs are seated, it’s first come, first serve.

We wrote about the forest roads issue earlier. You can read that here.

If you’d like, you can also share your opinions online until Oct. 31.
