Download as PDF rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 15 / Tuesday, January 24, 2006 / Notices The agreement is expected to attract sufficient interest among Florida landowners to generate substantial conservation benefits to the RCW on a landscape scale. FFWCs agreement was developed in an adaptive management framework to allow changes in the program based on new scientific information including, but not limited to, biological needs and management actions proven to benefit the species or its habitat. We have made a preliminary determination that issuance of the ESP will not result in significant environmental, economic, social, historical, cultural impacts and is therefore, categorically excluded from review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended pursuant to 516 Department Manual 2, Appendix 1 and 516 Department Manual 6 Appendix 1. In addition, we have evaluated the proposed ESP under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and have concluded that this Agreement will not affect cultural resources on or eligible for, the National Historic Register of Historic Places. We base our conclusions on our review of the process for protection and consideration of cultural resources included in the associated Agreement as well as the scope of the voluntary management actions identified in the Agreement. We have consulted with the Florida State Historic Preservation Officer and have received concurrence with our conclusion. We have also consulted with the appropriate Tribal Preservation Officers. We provide this notice pursuant to section 10(c) of the Act and pursuant to implementing regulations for NEPA (40 CFR 1506.6). We will evaluate the proposed Agreement, associated documents, and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act and NEPA have been met. If we determine that the requirements are met, we will issue an ESP under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the Act to the Applicant in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and specific terms and conditions of the authorizing ESP. We will not make our final decision until after the end of the 30-day comment period and will fully consider all comments received during the comment period. Dated: December 28, 2005. Cynthia K. Dohner, Acting Regional Director. [FR Doc.
