Notice of Availability of Eastern San Diego County Proposed Resource Management Plan and Final Environmental Impact Statement, California, 69226-69227 [E7-23771]

Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 69226 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 235 / Friday, December 7, 2007 / Notices adopts as operational requirements for permitted activities. The ROPs were developed to ensure that Alaska Statewide Land Health Standards are met. As required by 43 CFR 1610.7–2, areas with potential for designation as ACECs were considered during the Bay planning process. The preferred alternative recommends the designation of one ACEC, known as the Carter Spit ACEC. Final acreage for the proposed 36,220-acre Carter Spit ACEC will depend on the result of land conveyance to the State of Alaska and Native corporations. This ACEC is proposed to provide additional protections for Steller’s eiders (Polysticta stelleri), a federally-listed migratory bird species, and coastal salt-marsh habitat in the Goodnews Bay area. Use limitations within the boundary of the ACEC include: • Limited OHV (off-highway vehicle) designation. • Avoidance Area for rights-of-ways. • Open to fluid mineral leasing subject to special stipulations. • Open to locatable mineral entry subject to required operating procedures. • Closed to salable mineral activities. All comments received on the plan were analyzed and evaluated. Substantive comments and the BLM’s responses to those comments can be found in the appendices of the Proposed RMP/Final EIS. Comments on the Draft RMP/EIS received from the public and BLM review comments were incorporated into the Proposed RMP/ Final EIS. Public comments resulted in changes to the preferred alternative through the addition of clarifying text and additional analysis of impacts, and contributed to the adjustment of the boundary of the proposed Carter Spit ACEC. A summary of these changes follows the Executive Summary of the Proposed RMP/Final EIS. Copies of the Bay Proposed RMP/ Final EIS have been sent to affected federal, state, and local government agencies and to interested parties. The document is available for public inspection at the BLM Anchorage Field Office, 6881 Abbott Loop Road, Anchorage, AK, during normal business hours from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The planning area for the Eastern San Diego County RMP is the El Centro Field Office’s area of management responsibility. A total of approximately 103,000 acres of public lands are administered by the BLM in the planning area. The decisions in the RMP will only apply to BLM-administered lands and mineral estate in the planning area. The Eastern San Diego County Proposed RMP and Final EIS have been developed through collaborative planning and consider four alternatives. Primary issues include: renewable energy, sensitive natural and cultural resources, livestock grazing, energy and mineral development, visual resources, E:\FR\FM\07DEN1.SGM 07DEN1 pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 235 / Friday, December 7, 2007 / Notices and motorized vehicle route designations. The Proposed RMP/FEIS includes consideration of the designation of Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). The proposed plan includes retaining all or portions of the following existing ACECs: In-Ko-Pah ACEC—(currently 22,186 acres); Table Mountain ACEC— (currently 4,293 acres). In the Proposed RMP/FEIS, the In-Ko-Pah ACEC would be reduced in the north and east to avoid overlap with designated wilderness and wilderness study areas, and expanded in the south and west to include critical habitat for Peninsular Bighorn Sheep.
