(a) Amending plans. A plan amendment may add, modify, or rescind one or more of the decisions of a plan ( § 219.7 ). An amendment decision must be based on the identification and consideration of issues ( § 219.4 ), applicable information ( § 219.5 ), and an analysis of the effects of the proposed amendment ( § 219.6 ). In developing an amendment, the responsible official must provide opportunities for collaboration consistent with § 219.12 through § 219.18.
(b) Environmental review of a proposed plan amendment. For each proposal for a plan amendment, the responsible official must complete appropriate environmental analyses and public involvement in accordance with Forest Service NEPA procedures. A proposed amendment that may create a significant environmental effect and thus require preparation of an environmental impact statement is considered to be a significant change in the plan. If a proposal for amendment requires the preparation of an environmental impact statement, the responsible official must give public notice and an opportunity to comment on the draft environmental impact statement for at least 90 calendar days.
