Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request, 6524-6525 [E8-1934]

Download as PDF 6524 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 23 / Monday, February 4, 2008 / Notices would remain the same as Alternative A. Alternative C proposes a 7,609-acre boundary expansion that includes two of the four focus areas proposed in Alternative B. These focus areas were chosen because they offer the greatest potential for restoring the natural hydrologic regimen of the Wallkill River system. As in Alternative B, those expansion lands consist of high-quality, important wildlife habitat; occur in an amount and distribution that provide us the management flexibility to achieve refuge habitat goals and objectives; and fully complement and enhance the land management of adjacent conservation partners. We plan to announce the availability of our Draft CCP/EA in the Federal Register for a 30-day public review and comment period. After we evaluate and respond to public comments on the draft document, we will prepare a final CCP for review by our Regional Director. We will simultaneously submit the Land Protection Plan, outlining our expansion proposal, to the Director for his review. The Regional Director will evaluate the final CCP for agency compliance requirements, and to determine whether it will achieve refuge purposes and help fulfill the Refuge System mission. If he approves that document, and the Director concurs with the Land Protection Plan, the decision will be documented in a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). We can begin implementation of the final CCP as soon as our Regional Director issues the FONSI. Dated: September 26, 2007. Thomas J. Healy, Acting Regional Director, Northeast Region, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Hadley, Massachusetts. Editorial Note: This document was received at the Office of the Federal Register on January 30, 2008. [FR Doc.
