ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice advises the public that the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) as lead agency, with the Estom Yumeka Maidu Tribe (Enterprise Rancheria) as a cooperating agency, intends to gather information necessary for preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a proposed 40 acre fee-to-trust transfer and casino and hotel project to be located in Yuba County, California.

This notice also announces a public scoping meeting to identify potential issues, concerns and alternatives to be considered in the EIS. DATES: Written comments on the scope and implementation of this proposal must arrive by June 20, 2005. The public scoping meeting, to be co-hosted by the BIA and the Enterprise Rancheria, will be held June 9, 2005, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., or until the last public comment is received. ADDRESSES: You may mail or hand carry written comments to Clay Gregory, PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29363 Regional Director, Pacific Regional Office, Bureau of Indian Affairs, 2800 Cottage Way, Sacramento, California 95825.

The public scoping meeting will be held at the Elk’s Lodge, 920 D Street, Marysville, California 95901–5322. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Rydzik, (916) 978–6042. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 40 acre project site is located 4 miles southeast of the Community of Olivehurst, California, near the intersection of Forty Mile Road and State Route 65, in unincorporated Yuba County. The site is currently undeveloped and in use for hay farming. Surrounding land uses include agriculture, open space and entertainment. The proposed action consists of the placing of a 40 acre parcel, currently privately owned, into federal trust status and the construction of a casino-hotel project, for the benefit of the Enterprise Rancheria. The proposed construction would consist of a 207,760 square-foot gaming facility and a 107,125 squarefoot hotel on the 40 acre parcel. The two-story gaming facility would include a casino floor, food and beverage areas (including a buffet, gourmet restaurant, and bar), meeting space, guest support services, offices and security area. The eight-story hotel would contain 170 rooms (152 standard rooms and 18 suites) and would feature a lobby area, retail space, exercise room and arcade. The BIA previously prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) that analyzed the potential environmental effects of the proposed action. The EA was made available for public comments in July 2004. Upon consideration of the public and agency comments received during the 30-day public comment period, the BIA, in consultation with the Enterprise Rancheria, decided to prepare an EIS to further analyze the environmental effects which may result from the proposed action. Areas of environmental concern to be addressed in the EIS include land use, geology and soils, water resources, agricultural resources, biological resources, cultural resources, mineral resources, paleontological resources, traffic and transportation, noise, air quality, public health/environmental hazards, public services and utilities, hazardous waste and materials, socioeconomics, environmental justice, and E:\FR\FM\20MYN1.SGM 20MYN1
