Outfitters’ Licensing Renewal


FWSR, along with many others,  received notification from the Forest Service on April 27 about renewal of outfitters permits.  We are working on a response.  We think the proposed action, to simply renew the existing permits, is not okay.  Here is a link to a map of the W&S segments of the two rivers.   You can contact us at friends@friendsofthewhitesalmon.org if you have questions or opinions.

A couple weeks ago, we posted the Scoping Letter sent by the US Forest Service regarding Outfitter Permits.

We have filed our comment letter, asking for more examination of the other Outstandingly Remarkable Values and for consideration of a system of daily limits, to be phased in slowly over the next several years. The FWSR comment letter can be read in full here:  FWSR.Response.Outfitter.Permits.Scoping.May2020-1.

BOCC hearing on Tuesday, May 4 on the moratorium on commercial/industrial solar projects requiring conditional use permits. This is NOT a hearing on the EOZ, unfortunately.

The draft ordinance is a little hard to find at the moment. It is in the BOCC packet for the March 30, 2021 meeting, page 19. https://www.klickitatcounty.org/DocumentCenter/View/10316/3302021-BOCC-Agenda-Packet

If you want to comment at the meeting, you need to call ahead. Written comments can be submitted prior to the meeting as well.
Information on all this is in the public notice, here. https://klickitatcounty.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=314

More on the Goldendale pumped storage project. No easy answers on energy. We are on record opposing this project.
