In November 2014, a scoping notice (flyer) will be mailed to interested and affected parties directing them to the project’s information which will be posted to the Helena National Forest’s Web page (http:// www.fs.usda.gov/helena/). The Web page will contain detailed project information, identification of when public meetings will be scheduled, project proposal maps, and other pertinent project information. It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to the agency’s preparation of the environmental impact statement. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly articulate the reviewer’s concerns and contentions. The submission of timely and specific comments can affect a reviewer’s ability to participate in the administrative objection process or any judicial review. Dated: October 23, 2014.
