Informational meeting on the Department of Natural Resources' Road Maintenance and Abandonment Plan (RMAP) regulations
Monday, June 10, 2002
 6:30-8:30 PM
Presidents Hall, Kitsap County Fairgrounds
Bremerton, Washington
BACKGROUND: In 1999 the WA State Legislature passed HB2091 requiring private property owners to develop something akin to an EIS [Environmental Impact Study] for any roads on their property to protect public resources on private land, with all forest roads on state and private forest land to be improved and maintained to the new standards within 15 years. This federally driven legislation will adversely impact nearly everyone who owns 2.5 acres or more of forestland or land with a stream on it. These retroactive regulations erode private property rights and penalize anyone who wants to buy rural acreage.
