The U.S. Forest Service is releasing its proposed management plan for the Giant Sequoia National Monument created by former President Clinton nearly three years ago.
It favors one of six management alternatives – the one that allows new road construction.
Other options include maintaining the current Clinton administration rules, which bar most new roads and emphasize
non-motorized activities like hiking.
Public hearings are planned over the next two months, with a goal of getting a plan set by next fall.
