Public Notice, 60850-60851 [05-20915]

Download as PDF 60850 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 201 / Wednesday, October 19, 2005 / Notices George Wright Society (GWS) are working cooperatively to prepare a new U.S. Tentative List. After various reviews and approvals, NPS–OIA will forward a recommended list to the Secretary of the Interior for consideration and then to the U.S. Department of State for submittal to the World Heritage Committee. The proposed Application that is the subject of this Notice will document properties that are owner-nominated for inclusion in the Tentative List and for subsequent nomination by the United States to the World Heritage List. The information proposed to be collected will be used to determine whether the properties meet the criteria established for inclusion. The documentation also will be used to assist in preserving and protecting the properties and for heritage education and interpretation. Automated data collection: The proposal is to have the Application available from the Internet and for it to be submitted electronically by e-mail to the cooperator in the Office of International Affairs who is preparing the draft Tentative List. Those without access to electronic means will be able to obtain copies of the Application via a telephone, fax, or mail request and return them by mail. Description of respondents: Individual private property owners, groups of private and/or public property owners and Federal land managers. Participation would be strictly voluntary and only respondent owners who submit, or who authorize to be submitted on their behalf, a completed Application would have their sites considered for inclusion in the U.S. Tentative List. Estimated Annual Reporting Burden: 3200 hours. The expected range is 2000–6000 total hours, depending on the balance between less complex sites and more complex ones. If 50 individual Applications are received, of which 35 are of single buildings and 15 are of more complex sites, the total burden hours would be 3200. Estimated Average Burden Hours per Response: 64. Depending on the complexity of the site for which an Application for inclusion in the Tentative List is being prepared, the average burden hours per response would vary considerably because of many complex factors. In general, to fulfill minimum proposed program requirements describing the property and demonstrating its eligibility under the World Heritage criteria, the average burden hours likely would range from 40 hours for a single building Application to upward of 120 hours for a more complex group of buildings or a natural area Application, such as a major national or state park unit or wildlife refuge. The proposed Application is structured electronically so as to be used without continuation sheets, with space being inserted between sections as needed. The calculations of average burden hours provided here rest upon review of sample nominations of average length. Estimated Average Number of Respondents: 50. Frequency of Response: 1 time per respondent. under authority of the 1935 Historic Sites Act (45 Stat 666, 16 U.S.C. 461 et seq.). Sections 7(c)(i) and 7(c)(ii) of the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act, as amended by the Act of June 10, 1977 (Pub. L. 95–42, 91 Stat. 210), and the Act of March 10, 1980 (Pub. L. 103–333, 110 Stat. 4194), further authorized the Secretary of the Interior to make minor revisions in the boundaries whenever the Secretary determines that it is necessary for the preservation, protection, interpretation or management of an area. The map is on file and available for inspection in the Land Resources Program Center, Southeast Regional Office, 100 Alabama Street, SW., Atlanta, Georgia 30303, and in the Offices of the National Park Service, Department of the Interior, Washington DC 20013–7127.
