ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) of 1976 and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared a Proposed Resource Management Plan (PRMP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument (CSNM). This planning activity encompasses approximately 52,947 acres of public land located in Jackson County in southwestern Oregon. The BLM has and will continue to work closely with all interested parties to identify management decisions that best protect public lands in the monument. Final decisions will supercede the Medford District Resource Management Plan completed in 1995 for lands within the CSNM area and provide direction for management of these public lands. DATES: Publication of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Notice of Availability initiates a 30 day protest period. BLM Planning Regulations (43 CFR 1610.5–2) states that any person who participated in the planning process, and has an interest that may be adversely affected, may protest. The protest must be filed within 30 days of the date that the EPA publishes this notice in the Federal Register. Instructions for filing of protests are described in the ‘‘Dear Interested Party’’ letter of the CSNM PRMP/FEIS and PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7299 included in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice. Comments on the Proposed Plan and Final EIS may be submitted to Medford District Office, Attn: Howard Hunter, Project Manager, at the address listed below. ADDRESSES: Copies of the CSNM PRMP/ FEIS have been sent to affected Federal, state, and local government agencies and to known interested parties. The PRMP/FEIS is available for public inspection at the Medford District Office in Medford, Oregon, during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays). Interested persons may also review the PRMP/FEIS on the Internet at http://www.or.blm.gov/Medford/CSNM. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Howard Hunter, Project Manager, Bureau of Land Management, 3040 Biddle Road, Medford, Oregon, 97504, telephone (541–618–2256) or fax (541– 734–2400). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed management described in the PRMP/FEIS was developed based on the four alternatives examined in the Draft RMP/EIS (2002) and subsequent public review and comment on the Draft RMP/ EIS (June 2002–December 2002). The proposed management detailed in the FEIS addresses vegetation management, transportation and access, livestock grazing, recreation, visitor use, facilities, and rights-of-way. The PRMP describes a management strategy for meeting the primary goals of the proclamation. An approved RMP/ Record of Decision is expected to be available for the public by February 2005 after resolution of any protests. Comments on the Draft RMP/EIS received from the public and internal BLM review comments were incorporated into the proposed plan where appropriate. Public comments resulted in some additional analysis and the addition of clarifying text, but did not significantly change proposed land use decisions. Instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM regarding the PRMP/FEIS may be found at 43 CFR 1610.5. A protest may only raise those issues which were submitted for the record during the planning process. Email and faxed protests will not be accepted as valid protests unless the protesting party also provides the original letter by either regular or overnight mail postmarked by the close of the protest period. Under these conditions, BLM will consider the email or faxed protest as an advance copy and it will receive full consideration. If you wish to provide BLM with such E:\FR\FM\11FEN1.SGM 11FEN1
