Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 41030 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 138 / Thursday, July 17, 2008 / Notices ˜ Espanola Ranger District: Sandy Hurlocker, (505) 753–7331. Early Notice of Importance of Public Participation in Subsequent Environmental Review: A draft environmental impact statement will be prepared for comment. The comment period on the draft environmental impact statement will be a minimum of 45 days from the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes the notice of availability in the Federal Register. The Forest Service believes, at this early stage, it is important to give reviewers notice of several court rulings related to public participation in the environmental review process. First, reviewers of draft environmental impact statements must structure their participation in the environmental review of the proposal so that it is meaningful and alerts an agency to the reviewer’s position and contentions. Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Corp. v. NRDC, 435 U.S. 519, 553 (1978). Also, environmental objections that could be raised at the draft environmental impact statement stage but that are not raised until after completion of the final environmental impact statement may be waived or dismissed by the courts. City of Angoon v. Hodel, 803 F.2d 1016, 1022 (9th Cir. 1986) and Wisconsin Heritages, Inc. v. Harris, 490 F. Supp. 1334, 1338 (E.D. Wis. 1980). Because of these court rulings, it is very important that those interested in this proposed action participate by the close of the comment period so that comments and objections are made available to the Forest Service at a time when it can meaningfully consider them and respond to them in the final environmental impact statement. To assist the Forest Service in identifying and considering issues and concerns on the proposed action, comments on the draft environmental impact statement should be as specific as possible. It is also helpful if comments refer to specific pages or chapters of the draft statement. Comments may also address the adequacy of the draft environmental impact statement or the merits of the alternatives formulated and discussed in the statement. Reviewers may wish to refer to the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act at 40 CFR 1503.3 in addressing these points.

ACTION: Notice of Proposed New Fee Sites. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Deschutes National Forest is planning to charge fees at eleven recreation sites. Most of the sites have recently been reconstructed and upgraded. There are plans to add amenities to all sites in order to improve services and experiences. With the exception of Fall River Guard Station, all sites will be administered according to the current fee structure on the Deschutes National Forest which requires a Recreation Pass for parking. Day use fees would be five dollars and recreation passes, such as the Annual Recreation Fee Pass or Interagency Pass would continue to be honored. Fees are assessed based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operation and maintenance, market assessment, and public comment. The fees listed are only proposed and will be determined upon further analysis and public comment. Funds from fees would be used for the continued operation and maintenance of these recreation sites. Fall River Guard Station will be available for overnight rental. Cabin rentals offer a unique experience and are a widely popular offering on National Forests. The rental fee will be between $70 and $100 a night. Fall River Guard Station is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and the nomination process is currently being completed. The cabin has been recently renovated and the last phases are almost finished. A campground style toilet will be installed and renters will be responsible for bringing their own water.

Sunset Cove Boat Launch has a large paved parking lot, a dock that provides for disabled access, interpretive signs, a fish cleaning station, a toilet, and garbage collection.
