The clarification of what must be achieved according to law and policy will be based on review of the Riverways’ purpose, significance, special mandates, and the body of laws and policies directing park management. Based on determinations of desired conditions, the GMP/WS will outline the kinds of resource management activities, visitor activities, development that would be appropriate in the future, and consider whether or not wilderness should be proposed in a portion of the Riverways. A range of reasonable management alternatives will be developed through this planning process and will include, at minimum, a no-action and a preferred alternative. To facilitate sound analysis of environmental impacts, the NPS is gathering information necessary for the preparation of an associated EIS. As part of the planing process, the NPS is also preparing a WS to evaluate the Big Spring area at the Riverways for possible designation as wilderness. The Big Spring area was one of three areas evaluated for wilderness suitability as part of the 1984 GMP. All three areas were determined not suitable at the conclusion of the suitability assessment. The Big Spring area is now considered suitable because non-conforming uses have been removed. The other two areas considered in 1984, the Upper Jacks Fork and Cardareva areas are not being considered for wilderness designation because of continuing non-conforming uses and the presence of non-Federal land ownership, respectively. Our practice is to make comments, including names, home addresses, home phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their names and/or home addresses, etc., but if you wish us to consider withholding this information, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. In addition, you must present a rationale for withholding this information. This rationale must demonstrate that disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of privacy. Unsupported assertions will not meet this burden. In the absence of exceptional, documentable circumstances, this information will be released. We will always make submissions from organizations or businesses and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives of or officials of organizations or businesses, available for public inspection in their entirety.
