Ackerman, R.L.S. #16394, of Emerald Mountain Surveys, Inc., Steamboat Springs, CO 80477. The BLM petition/application has been approved by the Assistant Secretary of the Interior. Therefore it constitutes a withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1–3(e)). The purpose of the withdrawal would be to protect the scenic, recreation, water quality, and wildlife habitat values on the E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1 28992 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 99 / Wednesday, May 23, 2007 / Notices lands newly acquired in the Emerald Mountain Land Exchange and achieve the management objectives of the BLM Little Snake Field Office Resource Management Plan Amendment. The use of a right-of-way, an interagency or cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses that could irrevocably affect the resource values of the described lands. There are no suitable alternative sites, as the described lands contain the resource values that need protection. No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal. The potential for mineral development on the described lands is low. Records relating to the proposed withdrawal can be examined by contacting John Beck at the above address or phone number. 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 at the address listed during regular business hours, 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Individual respondents may request confidentiality. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Notice is hereby given that an opportunity for a public meeting is afforded in connection with the proposed withdrawal. All interested persons who desire a public meeting for the purpose of being heard on the proposed withdrawal must submit a written request to the BLM Colorado State Director at the address listed above within 90 days from the date of publication of this notice. If the authorized officer determines a public meeting will be held, a notice of the time and place will be published in the Federal Register and a local newspaper at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the meeting. Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, and other discretionary land use authorizations may be allowed with the approval of an authorized officer of the BLM during the segregative period. This withdrawal proposal will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR 2300. For a period of 2 years from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the lands will be segregated as specified above unless the application is denied or cancelled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date.

    The areas described aggregate 4,138.52 acres, more or less, in 
Routt County according to U.S. Government Survey and James B. 
Ackerman, R.L.S. 16394, of Emerald Mountain Surveys, Inc., 
Steamboat Springs, CO 80477.
    The BLM petition/application has been approved by the Assistant 
Secretary of the Interior. Therefore it constitutes a withdrawal 
proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1-3(e)).
    The purpose of the withdrawal would be to protect the scenic, 
recreation, water quality, and wildlife habitat values on the

[[Page 28992]]

lands newly acquired in the Emerald Mountain Land Exchange and 
achieve the management objectives of the BLM Little Snake Field 
Office Resource Management Plan Amendment.
    The use of a right-of-way, an interagency or cooperative 
agreement would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses that 
could irrevocably affect the resource values of the described lands.
    There are no suitable alternative sites, as the described lands 
contain the resource values that need protection.
    No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of the 
requested withdrawal.
    The potential for mineral development on the described lands is 
low.
    Records relating to the proposed withdrawal can be examined by 
contacting John Beck at the above address or phone number.
    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 
at the address listed during regular business hours, 7:45 a.m. to 
4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Individual 
respondents may request confidentiality. Before including your 
address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying 
information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire 
comment--including your personal identifying information--may be 
made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your 
comment to withhold your personal identifying information from 
public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
    Notice is hereby given that an opportunity for a public meeting 
is afforded in connection with the proposed withdrawal. All 
interested persons who desire a public meeting for the purpose of 
being heard on the proposed withdrawal must submit a written request 
to the BLM Colorado State Director at the address listed above 
within 90 days from the date of publication of this notice. If the 
authorized officer determines a public meeting will be held, a 
notice of the time and place will be published in the Federal 
Register and a local newspaper at least 30 days before the scheduled 
date of the meeting.
    Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, and other 
discretionary land use authorizations may be allowed with the 
approval of an authorized officer of the BLM during the segregative 
period.
    This withdrawal proposal will be processed in accordance with 
the regulations set forth in 43 CFR 2300.
    For a period of 2 years from the date of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register, the lands will be segregated as 
specified above unless the application is denied or cancelled or the 
withdrawal is approved prior to that date.
