Re: Wilderness Designations
Hi Joe: Thanks for the reply, one of the great things about the US is that
we can all have our say. I am very active in working with developers in
Northern CA. I may of my experiences that one of the first things a
developer is exclude the PUBLIC from what used to be Public Land, one must
accept that the loss of a short section of land that contains "the/Any trail
at times means a huge dedication of time and resources to replace or
relocate any trail. This to me is unacceptable and should not be a burden on
the Public because of the sale or exchange of Public Lands. I applaud all
that have a opinion that is different from what I view. This form serves to
inform the Public as to what is/has occurred through out the US. steven
