BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The National Forest Service is hosting a meeting in Bellingham today to help identify a safe and affordable road system for the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

Kitty Craig with the Wilderness Society, a forest conservation group, says the meeting is a chance to tell the National Forest Service which roads matter the most to people.

The National Forest Service has until 2015 to decide which new roads should be built and which existing roads should be maintained.

The meeting is from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Bellingham Public Library.

Mount Baker-Snoqualmie staff and local recreation and conservation groups will be at the meeting to answer questions.
