Community Forums

From May through July 2014, the Tonto NF hosted eight Community Forums at public facilities in Mesa, Payson, Roosevelt, Globe, Cave Creek, and Young. These Forums involved presentations from Forest Service staff and Tonto partners on key Forest Plan topics, followed by small group discussions to bring forth technical and local knowledge about these topics.

Community Forums Goals:

1) Create shared understanding of the Forest Plan and key Assessment topics

2) Provide an avenue to the public to give input on the Assessment

3) Lay the foundation for Forest Plan Revision
