Osborne Hill - Some Progress

The CDF has responded with to the Timber Harvest Plan (THP) submitted for Osborne Hill and their comments are very favorable for the cause of trail users. Essentially, the CDF found that the plan was riddled with inaccuracies and misinformation regarding everything from toxic substances to logging techniques. Most importantly for us, the CDF specifically called out the importance of trails on the property and how the THP does not address how trail usage would be affected by the logging.

The CDF suggested that the logging proponent withdraw the plan. While this sounds like a victory, who knows if the logging proponents will abide by these suggestions and withdraw the THP or just submit another half-baked proposal in the future. They seem just about as hard headed and clueless as they have all along.
