Download as PDF 8200 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 36 / Friday, February 23, 2007 / Notices Proposed Action The proposed action analyzes the implementation of the MDP as submitted by the Sun Valley Company. The agencies have a responsibility to determine consistency of the MDP with their respective Land Management Plans, to evaluate if any proposed facilities are in hazardous areas (i.e. avalanche path); evaluate if improvements are an appropriate use of Forest Service and BLM land; determine if private land is available to accomplish the proposed activities; and to make a public interest determination. Alternatives Identified Alternatives identified include: Alt. 1—No Action (continuing the present course of action). The existing MDP would not be updated. The ski area permit would be renewed in 2007 and the current MDP would be made part of it. Alt. 2—Proposed Action, the MDP as submitted by Sun Valley Company, would be attached to a new ski area permit. Alt. 3—An alternative which meets the purpose and need to update the MDP, but varies from the actions submitted by Sun Valley Company. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES How To Submit Comments Comments must be submitted using one of the following methods: 1.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Secretary of the Interior proposes to withdraw three small sites totaling 22.36 acres of public lands from surface entry and mining for a period of 20 years to protect maternity roosts of Townsend’s Big-eared Bats in Mesa, Montrose, and San Miguel counties, Colorado. This notice segregates the public lands from surface entry and mining for up to 2 years while various studies and analyses are made to support a final decision on the withdrawal application. DATES: Comments and requests for a public meeting must be received by May 24, 2007. ADDRESSES: Comments and meeting requests should be sent to the Colorado State Director, 2850 Youngfield Street, Lakewood, Colorado 80215–7093. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrew J. Senti, BLM Colorado State Office, 303–239–3713. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The applicant is the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) at the address stated above. The petition/application requests the Secretary of the Interior to withdraw, for a period of 20 years and subject to valid existing rights, the following described public land from settlement, sale, location or entry under the general land laws, including mining laws, but not the mineral leasing laws: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 New Mexico Principal Meridian T. 47 N., R. 17 W., Sec. 11, a metes and bounds parcel within the NW1⁄4NW1⁄4.

The areas described aggregate 22.36 acres in Mesa, Montrose, and San Miguel Counties. The BLM petition/application has been approved by the Assistant Secretary, Land and Minerals Management, therefore, it constitutes a withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1–3(e)). The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, cooperative agreement or surface management under 43 CFR part 3809 regulations would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses that could irrevocably affect bat maternity roosts. There are no suitable alternative sites, since the lands described contain the resources that need protection. No water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the withdrawal. The potential for locatable minerals is considered to be low. The purpose of the withdrawal is to preserve old mine workings on three small sites on public lands that contain a unique and favorable physical environment for maternity roosts of the Townsend’s Big-eared Bat, currently designated as a sensitive species by the BLM in Colorado. For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their views in writing to the BLM Colorado State Director at the address listed above. Comments including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Colorado State Office, during regular business hours, 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Individual respondents may request confidentiality. If you wish to withhold your name or address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by the law.
