    Default Susitna Flats State Game Refuge - Management Plan Public Scoping Meeting

    The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Divisions of Habitat and Wildlife Conservation, invite the public to attend public scoping meetings to share information and concerns about the Susitna Flats State Game Refuge (SGR).
    Public scoping meetings will be held from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the following locations:

    • November 27: MTA Headquarters Building Conference Room, Palmer
    • November 29: Z. J. Loussac Public Library public Conference Room, Anchorage
    • December 4: Donald E. Gilman River Center Conference Room, Soldotna

    These meetings are the first step in ADF&G's effort to revise the Susitna Flats SGR's management plan, which was originally written in 1988. ADF&G's planning staff would like to know how members of the public use the Susitna Flats SGR and its resources, and are seeking their input on how to best manage activities and public uses in the SGR. The Susitna Flats SGR Management Plan is used to guide ADF&G’s Special Area Permitting decisions for activities within the SGR that impact fish and wildlife or their habitat. Harvest regulations are under the authority of the Boards of Fish and Game and cannot be changed via this planning process.

    The Susitna Flats SGR was established in 1976 to protect the area's fish and wildlife populations and habitat – particularly waterfowl nesting and staging areas – as well as public uses of the area, such as hunting, viewing and general public recreation in a high-quality environment (AS 16.20.036). The SGR encompasses most of the Susitna River delta between Beluga and Point Mackenzie, and includes the Little Susitna Public Use Facility to the northeast. More information about the Susitna Flats SGR can be found here:

    Please distribute this email to any interested party, and feel free to post the attached flyer. Members of the public who cannot attend a scoping meeting are welcome to submit comments via comment forms available from ADF&G (contact info below) or by email (address below), through December 31, 2012.


    ADF&G will be assembling an inter-agency planning team that will begin meeting after the public comment period closes. The planning team will meet monthly to revise the Susitna Flats SGR management plan, and will include representatives from agencies with land-management responsibility within the SGR. Feel free to call or email me for more information on the planning process.

    Cheers,

    PUBLIC SCOPING COMMENTS

    The Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Divisions of Habitat and Wildlife Conservation invite the public to share information and concerns about the Susitna Flats State Game Refuge (SGR). This is the first step in ADF&G’s effort to revise the Management Plan for the Susitna Flats SGR.
    We would like to know how you use the area and its resources, and are looking for ideas on how to manage activities and public uses that are compatible with the SGR's mission to protect fish, wildlife, and their habitats. Some issues that have been addressed in other SGR Management Plans are: public access, motorized vehicle use, trails, structures, commercial uses, public facilities, mining, and habitat enhancement projects.

    Public comments will be accepted until December 31, 2012.

    1) What are your concerns and interests about the future of the Susitna Flats SGR? Are there other topics you feel we should consider?
    2) What actions would you like to see us consider taking to address the issues or to deal with other concerns you have about the Susitna Flats SGR?
     
    3) Finally, what is it about the Susitna Flats SGR or its resources that you value the most? Are these values being protected or do you feel they are threatened?
    4) Do you have any other comments?
