The ORV Management Plan/EIS will be used to guide the management and control of ORVs at Cape Hatteras National Seashore (the Seashore), North Carolina, for approximately the next 10 to 15 years. It will also form the basis for a special regulation that would regulate ORV use at the Seashore. The ORV Management Plan/EIS will assess potential environmental impacts associated with a range of reasonable alternatives for managing ORV impacts on park resources such as threatened and endangered species, soils, wetlands, wildlife, and cultural resources. Socioeconomic impacts and effects on visitor experience and public safety will also be analyzed. DATES: To determine the scope of issues to be addressed in the ORV Management Plan/EIS and to identify significant issues related to the ORV management at the Seashore, the NPS will conduct public scoping meetings in North Carolina at Buxton, Kill Devil Hills, and Raleigh, North Carolina and in Washington, DC. Representatives of the NPS will be available to discuss issues, resource concerns, and the planning process at each of the public meetings. When public scoping meetings have been scheduled, their locations, dates, and times will be published in local newspapers and posted on the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) Web site at http:// parkplanning.nps.gov/CAHA. ADDRESSES: Written comments or requests for information should be addressed to Mike Murray, Superintendent, Outer Banks Group, 1401 National Park Drive, Manteo, North Carolina 27954. Comments may also be hand delivered to Mike Murray, Superintendent, Outer Banks Group, 1401 National Park Drive, Manteo, North Carolina. In addition comments may be entered on-line in the NPS PEPC Web site at http:// PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 parkplanning.nps.gov/CAHA. To comment using PEPC, select the ‘‘Cape Hatteras National Seashore ORV Management Plan/DEIS project,’’ select ‘‘documents,’’ select this ‘‘Notice of Intent,’’ and then select ‘‘Comment’’ and enter your comments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mike Murray, Superintendent, at 252– 473–2111, extension 148. E-mail Mike_Murray@nps.gov. Further information about this project may also be found on the PEPC Web site at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/CAHA including links to information about the NEPA planning process and the regulatory negotiation process. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The ORV use on the Seashore beaches predates establishment of the park in 1953. The ORVs (mostly 4-wheel drive pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles) are used to provide vehicular access onto the Seashore beaches for recreational and commercial purposes, including surf fishing, surfing, sunbathing, swimming, bird watching, scenic driving, commercial fishing, etc. Ranger counts of ORVs on the beach have reached as high as 2,200 a day on summer holiday weekends. Executive Order 11644, issued in 1972 and amended by Executive Order 11989 in 1977, states that Federal agencies allowing ORV use must designate the specific areas and trails on public lands on which the use of ORVs may be permitted, and areas in which the use of ORVs may not be permitted. Agency regulations to authorize ORV use shall provide that designation of such areas and trails will be based upon the protection of the resources of the public lands, promotion of the safety of all users of those lands, and minimization of conflicts among the various uses of those lands. Executive Order 11644 was issued in response to the widespread and rapidly increasing use of ORV on the public lands—‘‘often for legitimate purposes but also in frequent conflict with wise land and resource management practices, environmental values, and other types of recreational activity.’’ Therefore, in accordance with the Executive Order, the purpose of this action is to develop an ORV Management Plan/EIS that considers alternative management strategies consistent with the park’s enabling legislation, and park mandates for preservation of resources and values. An ORV Management Plan is needed because lack of an approved plan over time has led to inconsistent management of ORV use. As the popularity of the Seashore continues to grow, conflicts between visitors who E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
