The FPEIS analyzes the impacts of four alternative approaches to managing the natural, environmental and cultural resources of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe. The purpose of the proposed action, approval of the tribe’s implementation of the IRMP for a period of 20 years, is to protect and sustain these resources. DATES: The Record of Decision on the proposed action will be issued on or after November 19, 2007. Any comments on the FPEIS must arrive by November 19, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FPEIS analyzes the impacts of four possible alternatives for the IRMP, as follows: Alternative A—This is the No Action Alternative. Under this alternative, there would be no change in the existing management. Current land use, recreation and resource management activities would continue using existing laws, policies, land use practices, management plans and agreements. Alternative B—This is the preferred alternative. It would provide for the enhancement of natural and cultural resources on the reservation, while maintaining the rural character of the reservation. The reservation ecology and biodiversity would be managed to ensure their restoration and maintenance to provide for tribal subsistence and cultural uses of the resources. Under this alternative, 11,136 acres would be available for development, 76,149 acres would be managed for conservation, 661,123 acres would retain their rural character, 92,565 acres would be managed for agricultural uses and 95,558 acres would be forested. Alternative C—This alternative emphasizes natural resource conservation, while maintaining a working landscape for agriculture and forestry where compatible. New development would be limited to designated and environmentally suitable areas to minimize resource disturbances and adverse environmental impacts. Under this alternative, 5,401 acres would be available for development, 172,502 acres would be managed for conservation values, 62,104 acres would be managed for agricultural uses and 96,569 acres would be forested. Alternative D—This alternative would manage the Reservation to maximize growth and development where it is not in conflict with either the natural and cultural resources or existing land use designations and suitability. Under this alternative, 55,909 acres would be available for development, 9,215 acres would be managed for conservation values, 4,808 acres would maintain their rural character, 50,953 acres would be managed for recreational uses, 72,791 acres would be managed for agricultural PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59303 uses and 123,634 acres would be forested.
