Goat Mountain radio communication project proposed on Grindstone Ranger District

WILLOWS, Calif. – The Mendocino National Forest is seeking input on the proposed Goat Mountain Radio Vault project on the Grindstone Ranger District.

The purpose of this proposed action is to provide a long-term solution for improving radio communication capabilities for the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and other emergency personnel.

The project area is approximately 12 miles southwest of Stonyford in Colusa County.

The proposed action is three-fold: 1) issue a communication use lease to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office for the use of National Forest System land at Goat Mountain for 20 years, subject to future renewal; 2) allow the Lake County Sheriff’s Office to construct, operate and maintain a radio repeater site for two-way radio communication at an existing Forest Service site; and 3) approve the existing area as the Goat Mountain Communication Site.

Future use would be limited to the government (federal, state, and local) per the Goat Mountain Communication Site Management Plan. Commercial use of the area would not be allowed (i.e., cellular, microwave or radio broadcasting).

Please provide comments by mail, fax, or in-person to Tony Saba, acting district ranger, c/o Linda Serret, acting district planning officer, at 825 N. Humboldt Ave., Willows 95988; fax 530-934-1212; or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Details of the project are posted on the forest’s Web site at http://www.fs.usda.gov/projects/mendocino/landmanagement/projects. Comments will be accepted for 14 calendar days following posting of this project on the Web page.

For more information, please contact Dave Roak, forest lands officer, at 530-934-1184.
