ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice advises the public that the Fish and Wildlife Service intends to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement, pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and its implementing regulations, for a proposed land exchange and acquisition of certain lands owned by Doyon, Limited within the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska. The Service is furnishing this notice to advise the public and other agencies of our intentions and to solicit suggestions and information on the scope of issues to be addressed in the environmental document. Special mailings, newspaper articles, and other media releases will announce opportunities to provide written and oral input. Public meetings will be held in the cities of Fairbanks, Anchorage, and in communities within and adjacent to the Refuge. The Draft Environmental Impact Statement will be available for viewing and downloading at http://alaska.fws.gov/nwr/yukonflats/ current.htm. DATES: Public scoping meetings will be scheduled for February in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and the communities of Arctic Village, Beaver, Birch Creek, Central, Chalkyitsik, Circle, Fort Yukon, Stevens Village, and Venetie. Meeting dates, times, and locations will be announced at least 30 days prior to the meeting. ADDRESSES: Address comments, questions, and requests to Cyndie Wolfe, Project Coordinator, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 1011 East Tudor Rd., MS–231, Anchorage, AK 99503, or yukonflats_noi@fws.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT: Cyndie Wolfe, Project Coordinator, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 1011 East Tudor Rd., MS–231, Anchorage, AK 99503, phone number 907–786–3463 or yukonflats_noi@fws.gov. Additional VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:50 Oct 18, 2005 Jkt 208001 information concerning the proposed land exchange can be found at http:// alaska.fws.gov/nwr/yukonflats/ current.htm. Doyon, Limited (Doyon) is an Alaska Native Regional Corporation established under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA; 43 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) Under the authority of ANCSA, Congress granted to Doyon land entitlements within an area that became the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) in 1980. Doyon has ownership interests in approximately 2.14 million acres within the boundaries of the Refuge, including the surface and subsurface estates of 1.25 million acres of land, and the subsurface estate of another 890,000 acres. An additional 56,517 acres remain to be allocated by Doyon to Village Corporations located in the Refuge; Doyon would own the subsurface to these lands. Doyon is owned by over 14,000 Alaska Natives (Native Americans) with ties to a large portion of interior Alaska. Approximately 1,000 people reside in several communities in the Yukon Flats. Most residents are Alaska Natives and many are Doyon shareholders. The Yukon Flats Refuge is located in eastern interior Alaska. The exterior boundaries include about 11 million acres, of which about 2.14 million acres are owned by ANCSA Native corporations, including Doyon. The Refuge includes the Yukon Flats, a vast wetland basin bisected by the Yukon River. The basin is underlain by permafrost and includes a complex network of lakes, streams, and rivers. The Refuge supports the highest density of breeding ducks in Alaska, and includes one of the greatest waterfowl breeding areas in North America. Negotiators for Doyon and the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), Alaska Region, have agreed in principle to provide Doyon title to some Refuge lands that may hold developable oil and gas resources. In exchange, the United States (U.S.) would receive lands currently owned by Doyon within the Refuge boundary. These lands include wetlands previously identified by the Service as quality fish and wildlife habitat. In addition, both parties have agreed to exchange nearly six townships (264,000 acres) to consolidate ownerships and facilitate land management. All lands acquired by the U.S. would be managed as part of the Yukon Flats Refuge. Activities on Doyon lands are not subject to regulation by the Service. To evaluate the exchange, the Service will prepare an Environmental Impact SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60845 Statement (EIS) in accordance with procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321–4370d). Appropriate agencies will be invited to participate as cooperating or reviewing agencies. National Environmental Policy Act compliance is not legally required for land exchanges conducted under the provisions of ANCSA and the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA; 16 U.S.C. 410hh–410hh– 5, 460 mm–460mm–4, 539–539e, and 3101–3233; also 43 U.S.C. 1631–1642). However, at the request of Doyon and the public, the Department of the Interior has agreed to evaluate the proposed land exchange through the process of an EIS. The EIS will evaluate a range of reasonable alternatives, including the following four alternatives. All these alternatives, including the ‘‘no action’’ alternative, could result in oil and/or gas development on Doyon-owned lands. Because access to Doyon lands would cross federally-owned lands, Doyon would be required to apply for a right-of-way permit under Title XI of ANILCA. At that time, a separate NEPA process would evaluate various transportation/pipeline corridor alternatives. (1) Equal-value land exchange (based on fair market appraisals) as described in the Agreement in Principle (for the full text of the Agreement, see http:// alaska.fws.gov/nwr/yukonflats/ current.htm). Under Phase 1 of this agreement, Doyon would receive about 110,000 acres of Refuge lands with oil/ gas potential and 97,000 acres of oil and gas interests (no surface occupancy). In exchange, the U.S. would receive from Doyon an equal-value amount of lands (tentatively estimated at 150,000 acres), with quality fish and wildlife habitats. In addition, Doyon would reallocate 56,517 acres of its remaining land entitlement outside the Refuge. Both parties would pursue additional township-level exchanges to consolidate ownerships. If Doyon discovers and produces oil or gas on the lands it acquires in the exchange, the Service would receive production payments to be used to: (1) Purchase from Doyon certain additional lands or interests therein, within the Refuge, (2) purchase land or interests therein, from other willing sellers in other national wildlife refuges in Alaska, or (3) to construct facilities in Alaska Refuges. (2) No action. The U.S. would not enter into a land exchange with Doyon. Any oil or gas exploration/development by Doyon within the Refuge would be confined to Doyon’s current land holdings.
