Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of information. Description of Need: The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 requires the Secretary of the Interior to maintain and expand the National Register of Historic Places, and to establish criteria and guidelines for including properties in the National Register. The National Register of Historic Places Registration Form documents properties nominated for listing in the National Register and demonstrates that they meet the criteria established for inclusion. The documentation is used to assist in preserving and protecting the properties and for heritage education and interpretation. National Register properties must be considered in the planning for federal or federally assisted projects. National Register listing is required for eligibility for the federal rehabilitation tax incentives. The primary purpose of the ICR is to nominate properties for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, the official list of the nation’s cultural resources worthy of preservation, which Public Law requires that the Secretary of the Interior maintain and expand. Properties are listed in the National Register upon nomination by State, Federal and Tribal Historic Preservations Officers. The National Register of Historic Places Registration Form documents properties nominated for listing in the National Register and demonstrates that they meet the criteria established for inclusion. The documentation is used to assist in preserving and protecting the properties and for heritage education in interpretation. National Register properties and those eligible for listing must be considered in the planning for Federal or federally assisted projects, and National Register listing is required for eligibility for the Federal Rehabilitation Tax incentives. The forms provide the historic PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 documentation on which decisions for listing and eligibility are based. The obligation to respond is required to obtain or retain benefits. Description of respondents: The affected public are State, tribal, and local governments, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and individuals. Nominations to the National Register of Historic Places are voluntary. Estimated average number of respondents: 1,513. Estimated average number of responses: 1,513. Estimated average time burden per respondent: Depending on which form is used, the average burden per response may very considerably because of many complex factors. In general, to fulfill minimum program requirements describing the nominated property and demonstrating its eligibility under the criteria, the average burden hours range from 18 hours for a nomination proposed under an existing Multiple Property Submission (MPS), to 36 hours for a new proposed individual nomination, to 120 hours for a newly proposed MPS. Continuation Sheets (10–900-a) are used as space for additional information for both the individual nomination form and the multiple property form, as needed. As such the calculation of burden hours per response for the continuation sheet has been included in the above average calculations for the National Register of Historic Places Registration Form (10– 900), and the National Register Multiple Property Documentation Form (10–900b). Frequency of response: Once per respondent. Estimated total annual reporting burden: 52,824 hours broken down as follows: 196 nominations submitted under existing MPS @ 18 hrs. each = 3,528 hours; 1,186 newly proposed individual nominations @ 36 hrs. each = 42,696 hours; 55 new proposed MPS @ 120 hrs. each = 6,600 hours. Comments are invited on: (1) the practical utility of the information being gathered; (2) the accuracy of the burden hour estimate; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden to respondents, including use of automated information collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.

OMB Control Number: 1024–0126. Expiration Date: April 30, 2009. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of information. Description of Need: The National Park Service (NPS) authorizes private businesses known as concessioners to provide necessary and appropriate visitor facilities and services in areas of the National Park System. Concession authorizations may be assigned, sold, transferred or encumbered by the concessioner subject to prior written approval of the NPS. The NPS requires that certain information be submitted for review prior to the consummation of any sale, transfer, assignment, or encumbrance. 16 U.S.C. 3 provides that no contract, lease, permit or privilege granted for the purpose of providing accommodations for visitors to the national parks shall be assigned or transferred by such grantees, permittees, or licenses without the approval of the NPS, first obtained in writing. It further provides that the NPS may authorize concessioners to execute mortgages and issue bonds, shares of stock, and other evidences or interest in or indebtedness upon their rights, properties and franchises, for the purposes of installing, enlarging, or improving plants and equipment and extending facilities for the accommodation of the public within national parks and monuments. 16 U.S.C. 20(3) also provides that the possessory interest of a concessioner may be assigned, transferred, encumbered, or relinquished. Regulations at 36 CFR, part 51, require that certain information be submitted for review by the NPS prior to the consummation of any sale, transfer, assignment or encumbrance. The information requested is used to determine whether or not the proposed transaction will result in decreased services to the public, the lack of a reasonable opportunity for profit over the remaining term of the authorization, or rates in excess of existing approved rates to the public. In addition, pursuant to the regulations at 36 CFR, Part 51, the value of rights for intangible assets such as the concession contract, right of preference in renewal, user days, or low fees belong to the Government. If any portion of the purchase price is PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39985 attributable either directly or indirectly to such assets, the transaction may not be approved. The amount and type of information to be submitted varies with the type and complexity of the proposed transaction. Without such information, the NPS would be unable to determine whether approval of the proposed transaction would be adequate. Concessioners’ obligation to respond is required to retain or obtain benefits. Automated data collection: No automated data collection will take place. Description of respondents: Businesses or other for-profit, individuals or households, not-for-profit institutions. Estimate average number of respondents: 20. Estimated average time burden per respondent: 80 hours. Estimated average number of responses: 20. Frequency of response: Once per respondent. Estimated total annual reporting burden: 1,600 hours. Comments are invited on: (1) The practical utility of the information being gathered; (2) the accuracy of the burden hour estimate; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden to respondents, including use of automated information collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
