SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To meet increasing demands for services and maintenance of existing facilities, routes, and trails, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)’s Hollister Field Office proposes to begin collecting fees January 2008 in the Clear Creek Special Recreation Management Area (CCMA) in San Benito and Fresno Counties, California, under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (REA) of 2005. The primary recreation opportunity in the CCMA is off-highway vehicle use; however, more and more outdoor enthusiasts are engaging in other recreation activities in the CCMA with less surface impact, including hunting, hiking, backpacking, hang gliding, peak climbing, and rock hounding. Since the area offers recreation users both motorized and non-motorized recreation opportunities, the CCMA qualifies as a site wherein visitors can be charged a ‘‘Standard Amenity Recreation Fee’’ authorized under Section 3(f) and a ‘‘Special Recreation Permit Fee’’ authorized under section 3(h) of the REA. After receiving support, guidance, and recommendations from the Central California Resource Advisory Council (RAC), the BLM California State Office, and considerable public input, the BLM Hollister Field Office proposes a fee structure that would consist of charging a Standard Amenity Recreation (SAR) Fee of $5.00 per vehicle upon arriving at the site. This SAR Fee will only apply to users who use facilities at the Clear Creek Management Area and not for members of the public passing through the CCMA. For those visitors who would be participating in OHV use (e.g. ATVs, motorcycles, quads, dune DATES: E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1
