EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Lane County officials are seeking public input on a long-term management plan for the Howard Buford Recreation Area. The plan would cover vegetation and wildlife management of the popular park near Mount Pisgah.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/mkaAEy ) the plan is overdue park that attracted an estimated 400,000 visitors last year.

The county’s parks department started working on a plan in 2008 and again in 2012. County officials say the formal document never was completed, due to other projects and a lack of staffing at the department.

Now the plan unveiled earlier this month is on a fast track, with public comment welcomed until June 30.

The proposal includes plans for an off-leash area for dogs and for ivy removal near trails.
