Attached is the Decision Notice for the Point of Rocks Fishing Access Site (FAS) Initial Development Project Environmental Assessment (EA). Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) proposes to develop a new river access on the upstream parcel of the Point of Rocks Fishing Access Site (FAS) to replace a substandard pioneered ramp downstream that is causing erosion. Development includes new highway signs, a concrete boat ramp, vault latrine, parking for 12 vehicles, and an overflow parking area for approximately another 12 - 15 vehicles. The existing highway approach will be improved as well. Based on the EA, public comment, and the need for a suitable boat ramp at Point of Rocks Fishing Access Site, it is my decision to proceed with the development project. Both the Decision Notice and the Environmental Assessment are available for review from FWP at the address above or online on FWP’s Internet website: http://www.fwp.mt.gov/publicnotices. Questions regarding this Decision Notice should be directed to: Todd Garrett Region Three Fishing Access Site Program Manager Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks c/o Point of Rocks FAS Initial Development EA 1400 S. 19th Ave Bozeman, MT 59718 (406) 994-3552 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
