Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 45446 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 156 / Tuesday, August 14, 2007 / Notices management activities specified in the cooperative agreements, incidental to other lawful uses of the properties, including normal routine land management activities, and/or to return to pre-Agreement conditions. To benefit the VELB and GGS, Program Participants will agree to undertake site-specific management activities, which will be specified in their written cooperative agreements. Management activities that could be included in the Cooperative Agreements will provide for the restoration, enhancement and management of native riparian and/or wetland habitats in Yolo County. The object of such activities is to enhance populations of VELB and/or GGS by creating healthy native riparian plant and/or wetland communities. Take of VELB and GGS incidental to the aforementioned activities is unlikely; however, it is possible that in the course of such activities or other lawful activities on the enrolled property, a Program Participant could incidentally take a VELB or GGS thereby necessitating take authority under the permit. Pre-Agreement conditions (baseline), consisting of a description and survey to delineate the locations of all elderberry bushes having 1 or more stems that are 1 inch or greater in diameter at the base and to determine the quantity, quality, and location of suitable GGS habitat, shall be determined for each enrolled property as provided in the Agreement. In order to receive the above assurances regarding incidental take of VELB and/ or GGS, a Program Participant must maintain baseline on the enrolled property. The Agreement and requested enhancement of survival permit will allow each Program Participant to return to baseline conditions after the end of the term of the 10-year cooperative agreement and prior to the expiration of the 30-year permit, if so desired by the Applicants. Consistent with the Service’s Safe Harbor Policy (64 FR 32717), the proposed Agreement and requested permit also extend certain assurances to those lands that are immediately adjacent to lands on which restoration activities occur. To receive such assurances, a neighboring landowner must enter into a written agreement with the Service that specifies the baseline conditions on the property. This written agreement remains in effect until the expiration of the 30-year Agreement between the Applicant and the Service and requires the neighboring landowner to maintain the baseline conditions established at the start of the agreement. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Aug 13, 2007 Jkt 211001 Public Review and Comments The Service has made a preliminary determination that the proposed Agreement and permit application are eligible for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). We explain the basis for this determination in an Environmental Action Statement, which is also available for public review. Individuals wishing copies of the permit application, copies of our preliminary Environmental Action Statement, and/or copies of the full text of the Agreement, including a map of the proposed permit area, references, and legal descriptions of the proposed permit area, should contact the office and personnel listed in the ADDRESSES section above. If you wish to comment on the permit application or the Agreement, you may submit your comments to the address listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. Comments and materials received, including names and addresses of respondents, will be available for public review, by appointment, during normal business hours at the address in the ADDRESSES section above and will become part of the public record, pursuant to section 10(c) of the Act. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their home address from the record, which we will honor to the extent allowable by law. There also may be circumstances in which we would withhold from the record a respondent’s identity, as allowable by law. If you wish us to withhold your name and/or address, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment. Anonymous comments will not be considered. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, are available for public inspection in their entirety. We will evaluate this permit application, associated documents, and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the permit application meets the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act and NEPA regulations at 40 CFR 1506.6. If we determine that the requirements are met, we will sign the proposed Agreement and issue an enhancement of survival permit under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the Act to the Applicants for take of the VELB and/or GGS incidental to otherwise lawful activities in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. We will not make our final decision until after the end of the 30- PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 day comment period and will fully consider all comments received during the comment period. The Service provides this notice pursuant to section 10(c) of the Act and pursuant to implementing regulations for NEPA (40 CFR 1506.6). Dated: August 8, 2007. Susan K.
