L. 108–042, the National Park Service, Department of the Interior, has initiated public scoping for a study of the San Gabriel River surrounding watershed and San Gabriel Mountains so as to evaluate significance of the area’s resources and assess the possible suitability and feasibility of the area to be considered for inclusion in the National Park System. Originally the public scoping period was set to conclude on April 19, 2005 (per Federal Register notice dated January 19, 2005). In deference to public interest expressed to date from local governmental agencies, organizations, and other interested parties, the scoping period has been extended. SUMMARY: VerDate jul<14>2003 16:34 Apr 19, 2005 Jkt 205001 DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service Notice of Availability for a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Feasibility Study on the Preservation of Civil War Battlefields and Related Historic Sites Along the Vicksburg Campaign Trail (VCT) in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 102(2) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and National Park Service (NPS) policy in Director’s Order Number 12 (Conservation Planning, Environmental Impact Analysis, and Decision-making), the NPS announces the availability of a PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FEIS for the Feasibility Study on the Preservation of Civil War Battlefields and Related Historic Sites along the VCT in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The Feasibility Study examines almost 500 sites with a view to how they might best be preserved and linked. ADDRESSES: Limited numbers of copies of the FEIS/Feasibility Study are available from Harlan Unrau, National Park Service, Denver Service Center— Planning, P.O. Box 25287, 12795 West Alameda Parkway, Denver, CO 80225– 0287, or by calling (303)–969–2254. An electronic copy of the FEIS/Feasibility Study is available on the Internet at http://www.nps.gov/vick. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Feasibility Study identified approximately 500 sites in five states that were associated with the Vicksburg Campaign. The study then evaluated and rated each site according to criteria established by the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report on the Nation’s Civil War Battlefields (1993); sites were rated as Tier One (Decisive/ Major), Tier Two (Formative), and Tier Three (Limited). As of May 2003, 19 Tier One, 26 Tier Two, 131 Tier Three, and 315 associated sites had been identified, for a total of 491 sites included in the VCT Feasibility Study. The FEIS describes and analyzes the environmental impacts of three alternatives, including a no action alternative, for the future management direction of the VCT Initiative. NPS Preferred Alternative is Alternative C— Comprehensive Preservation. The intent of the proposed action is to link all sites associated with the VCT in a formally designated VCT Initiative. Legislation would be needed to establish the VCT Initiative, modeled after the legislation establishing the Underground Railroad Network to Freedom program. Emphasis would be placed on protection of all sites associated with the VCT that have been recognized as being nationally significant, i.e., the Tier One Sites, through acquisition in fee or easement by Federal, State, or local agencies, and private organizations. It also anticipates that three of the sites (Champion Hill, Port Gibson, and Fort Heiman) encompassing approximately 2,000 acres could be added to the National Park System as boundary adjustments at existing units if authorized by Congress. In other cases the NPS could assist other managing authorities in the protection and preservation of other Tier One sites (e.g., Fort Pillow). Protection of the Tier One sites would be part of a comprehensive effort that E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1
