A public comment period will be provided at 11:30 a.m. on March 8, 2007, for any interested publics who wish to address the Council on BLM programs and business. Under the Federal Recreation Enhancement Act, the BLM Arizona RAC has been designated the Recreation Resource Advisory Council (RRAC), and has the authority to review all BLM and Forest Service (FS) recreation fee proposals in Arizona. The afternoon meeting agenda on March 8 will be devoted to presenting the Recreation Enhancement Act (REA) Working Group Report, and reviewing one FS, and three BLM fee proposals in Arizona: (1) Sycamore Cabin (Prescott National Forest) Less than a 20-minute drive from Phoenix, Flagstaff and Prescott, this historic Prescott National Ranger house is currently available for nightly rental. The fee proposal will consider an increase from $100 to $125 per night (excluding $9 reservation fee). An additional $25 per night will be charged if a Recreational Vehicle is brought to the site. (2) Coyote Buttes Special Management Area (BLM Arizona Strip District) Just south of the Utah-Arizona border, with access located midway between Page, Arizona and Kanab, Utah on U.S. Highway 89. Visitors may hike in scenic Coyote Buttes by obtaining an online permit on a first-come, first-served basis. The existing permit fee is $5 per person, per day. The fee proposal will consider the inclusion of an online lottery for hiking permits and a $5 per application lottery fee. (3) Amenity Fee Site Proposals, Annual Recreation Pass, and Long-Term Visitor Areas (BLM Yuma Field Office). Changes to the recreation fee schedules are proposed, including an increase from $140 to $180 for a 7-month permit, and from $30 to $40 for a 14-day permit at the Field Office’s two Long-Term Visitor Areas. In addition, BLM also maintains seven other developed recreation fee sites, six of which are located on the lower Colorado River. The annual pass honored at all seven of these recreation sites is proposed to increase from $50 to $75. At the six Colorado River recreation sites, BLM is proposing to establish a $10 day-use fee and a $15 overnight fee. At the seventh site, the Ehrenberg Sandbowl OffHighway Vehicle Area, BLM is proposing to establish a $5 day-use fee and a $10 overnight fee. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:03 Feb 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 (4) Amenity Fee Site Proposals and Annual Recreation Pass (BLM Lake Havasu Field Office). The Annual Recreation Pass fee is proposed to increase from $50 to $100 per year, the first increase since the program began in 2002. The Annual Pass is used in lieu of paying daily permit fees (typically $4 to $20 each) for an unlimited number of overnight and day-use visits at Lake Havasu shoreline campsites and Parker Strip recreation sites. An increase in Daily Permit Fees is also proposed for the Parker Strip, from $3 to $4 to $5 for day use, and from $4 to $10 to $5 to $10 for overnight. In addition, fees proposed for the Empire Landing Campground (upon its reopening in 2008) would be $25 to $30 per day. Following the FS and BLM proposals, the RRAC will open the meeting to public comments on the fee proposals. After completing their RRAC business, the BLM RAC will reconvene to provide recommendations to the RAC Designated Federal Official on the fee proposals and discuss future RAC meetings and locations.

Notification of Termination of the Environmental Impact Statement 
for the Great Falls Historic District Special Resource Study in 
Paterson, NJ

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notification of Termination of the EIS process for the Great 
Falls Historic District Special Resource Study in Paterson, New Jersey.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: As directed by the U.S. Congress in Pub. L. 107-59, the 
National Park Service (NPS) undertook a special resource study (SRS) of 
the Great Falls Historic District in Paterson, New Jersey. In 
accordance with NPS policy, the Great Falls Historic District SRS was 
initially undertaken as an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process 
in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as 
amended (NEPA). A Notice of Intent to Prepare an EIS was published in 
the Federal Register on September 15, 2003. The purpose of an SRS is to 
determine the degree and kind of federal actions that may be desirable 
for the management and protection of an area considered to have 
potential for addition to the national park system. The EIS assesses 
the impacts of the management alternatives examined in the SRS.
    The SRS examines a site in terms of:
     significance of the resources

[[Page 8398]]

     determination of suitability of the site for inclusion 
within the national park system in comparison to other protected sites 
with similar resources or themes
     determination of feasibility for the NPS to own, manage or 
participate in conservation and interpretation in the study area
     need for NPS management measured against other 
alternatives
    This SRS examined the resources in the existing Great Falls 
Historic District, which preserves the history of the beginnings of 
manufacturing and labor in the United States. All of the elements of 
the site are located within the City of Paterson, County of Passaic, in 
New Jersey, adjacent to the Passaic River. Determination of the need 
for NPS management is the final criterion for evaluating resources for 
potential designation as a unit in the national park system. The study 
concluded that the site is determined neither suitable nor feasible for 
potential designation as a unit of the national park system. As a 
result, there is no need for NPS management and no further Federal 
action. Therefore, the EIS process has been terminated.
