BOISE, Idaho (CBS2) — Boise National Forest reviewed and approved Tamarack Resort's expansion application.
The resort proposed an expansion that increased its footprint by 2,099 acres. The resort is hoping to add several ski lifts and increase summer recreational activities.
“Tamarack Resort has shown they have the resources to move forward in the special use process," said Tawnya Brummett, Boise National Forest supervisor, "and as a result, the proposal will enter into the beginning of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.”
The proposal will now be open for public involvement, including several opportunities for people to make comments.
“I’d like to emphasize that the acceptance of the proposal does not mean that the expansion will be permitted," Brummett said. "It is just the first step in beginning the environmental analysis and public involvement that is required for this type of project.”
When the project is open for comments, it will be posted HERE.
