Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is extending the public comment period on the environmental assessment of an easement that would give the Tongue River Railroad Company a right-of-way over land occupied by FWP’s Miles City Fish Hatchery.
The easement and right of way is required for the sole purpose of constructing and operating a single track railroad line, together with bridges, culverts, crossings, rails, ties, ballasts, signals, wires, switches, and other materials in, on, over and across land owned by the MCFH. This action will impact 24.85 acres of the total 242.25-acre site located west of Miles City, Montana

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has hired a consultant to conduct an environmental assessment (EA) for the purpose of establishing the Paul Taylor Memorial Fishing Access Site in Region One. There are two potential locations on Lake Five in Flathead County for consideration of developing a fishing access site. FWP currently owns one of the properties, and the other property under consideration would be purchased and/or traded from a private landowner. Development at the site would include parking, vault toilet, boat ramp, signs and gates, entrance road improvements, and a host pad. A copy of the draft is attached.
Two public hearings are scheduled: December 3, 2008, 6-8 p.m., at the Hungry Horse Ranger District office, 10 Hungry Horse Drive, Hungry Horse, Montana; and December 10, 2008, 6-8 p.m., at the FWP public meeting room, 490 N Meridian Road, Kalispell, Montana.
The draft will be out for public review from November 21 through December 22, 2008. Please direct questions or comments to Regional Parks Manager Dave Landstrom, FWP, 490 N Meridian Road, Kalispell, MT 59901 or e-mail email@example.com.
