Receipt of Applications for Permit, 5875-5876 [E6-1430]

Download as PDF hsrobinson on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 23 / Friday, February 3, 2006 / Notices The plan addresses four primary issues identified by the public and Refuge: (1) Habitat management; (2) visitor services; (3) refuge expansion; and (4) species assessments. The EIS evaluates three alternatives for future management of the Driftless Area NWR. The preferred alternative calls for ultimately acquiring 6,000 additional acres. Over the next 15 years we would permanently conserve approximately 2,275 of these acres within 22 counties in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Under the preferred alternative we would achieve endangered species recovery and conservation of Service species of concern, multiple recovery goals for delisting of the Iowa Pleistocene snail through increased habitat management, and a carefully monitored increase in environmental education and wildlife observation programs. Public comments were requested, considered, and incorporated throughout the planning process in numerous ways. Public outreach has included public meetings, meetings with stakeholders, planning update mailings, letters to adjoining landowners, and Federal Register notices. Three previous notices were published in the Federal Register concerning this CCP/EIS (67 FR 37852, May 30, 2002; 70 FR 28952, May 19, 2005; and 70 FR 32610, June 3, 2005). During the Draft CCP/EIS comment period that occurred from May 19 to July 22, 2005, the Service received 12 comment letters or e-mails in addition to comments made at four public meetings. All substantive issues raised in the comments have been addressed through revisions incorporated in the Final CCP/EIS text or in responses contained in Chapter 7 of the Final EIS/ CCP. The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966, as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee et seq.), requires the Service to develop a CCP for each National Wildlife Refuge. The purpose in developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year strategy for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and Service policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction for conserving wildlife and their habitats, the CCP identifies wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:00 Feb 02, 2006 Jkt 208001 photography, and environmental education and interpretation. We will review and update these CCPs at least every 15 years in accordance with the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966, as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370d).
