FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robbin Boyce at (208) 962–3245 or email: robbin_boyce@blm.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Eastside Township Fuels and Vegetation Project (Eastside) is located in north central Idaho, near the southern portion of the Idaho Panhandle in Idaho County. The project area, which encompasses approximately 3,300 acres, borders the small, isolated town of Elk City and includes the surrounding wildland urban interface (WUI) areas. Actual BLM-administered lands to be treated total approximately 1,300 acres. This landscape level project was developed to address increasing fuel loads resulting from combined effects of long-term fire suppression and an ongoing mountain pine beetle epidemic in the Elk City area. The purpose of this project is to manage the fuels and vegetation conditions in the Elk City WUI area. The project objectives are to: • Reduce the risk of high intensity wildland fire to life, property and natural resources and the likelihood of severe local fire effects by removing dead, dying, and downed trees that would otherwise result in high fuel loading; • Manage forest stands to create conditions that will contribute to sustaining long-lived fire tolerant tree species by regenerating to western larch and Douglas-fir, and by retaining most Douglas-fir, western larch, and ponderosa pine; • Create an upward trend in fish habitat condition; and • Contribute to the economic and social well being of area users and local residents. Existing and potential fuel loads would be reduced through a combination of vegetation manipulation and fuels treatments while supporting a long term upward trend in fish habitat condition. Treatments include removing dead and dying trees and selectively harvesting other trees in both lodgepole pine and mixed conifer stands. Fuel treatments include thinning, piling and burning, prescribed burning, and biomass utilization. The Final EIS analyzes four alternatives based on issues identified during the scoping process. Alternatives include a no action alternative and the ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1
