Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 156 / Tuesday, August 12, 2008 / Notices may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comments to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. We will make all submissions from organizations or businesses, from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials, or organizations or businesses available for public inspection in their entirety. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Superintendent, Ice Age and North Country National Scenic Trails, 700 Rayovac Drive, Suite 100, Madison, Wisconsin 53711; telephone 608–441– 5610. The primary purpose of the Ice Age NST is to create an outstanding 1,000-mile hiking trail that follows the terminal moraines and other landscape features left by the last glacial advance and retreat approximately 10,000 years ago. The Ice Age National Scientific Reserve (Reserve), a companion project to the Ice Age NST, is a network of nine units that contain clusters of the most significant examples of landscape features formed by continental glaciation. The Ice Age NST and Reserve are the only authorized areas in the National Park System that focus on interpreting the landscape formed by continental glaciation. The Ice Age NST Interpretive Site lies within the boundary of the Wisconsin DNR Cross Plains Unit of the Reserve. The NPS efforts to establish, develop, and manage the Ice Age NST are guided by the 1983 Comprehensive Plan for Management and Use of the Ice Age NST. The plan does not address or resolve the many detailed issues associated with owning, operating, and organizing a major interpretive site along the trail, although it cites the NPS authority to establish such a site. The development of a new GMP/EIS for the Ice Age NST Interpretive Site and Cross Plains Unit of the Reserve will result in a long-term (15–20 year) vision for the management and protection of this unique area. The outcome of the GMP/ EIS will achieve a consistent management over the entire project, identify necessary developments, and support facilities to achieve the desired outcomes for the Ice Age NST and Interpretive Site, provide direction for restoring and managing the significant geologic and biologic features on the site, and define appropriate visitor use activities. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:24 Aug 11, 2008 Jkt 214001 Dated: May 19, 2008.

prior to execution, each proposed contract form must be approved by the 
Secretary of the Interior, or pursuant to delegated or redelegated 
authority, the Commissioner of Reclamation or one of the regional 
directors. In some instances, congressional review and approval of a 
report, water rate, or other terms and conditions of the contract may 
be involved.
    Public participation in and receipt of comments on contract 
proposals will be facilitated by adherence to the following procedures:
    1. Only persons authorized to act on behalf of the contracting 
entities may negotiate the terms and conditions of a specific contract 
proposal.

    6. Copies of specific proposed contracts may be obtained from the 
appropriate regional director or his designated public contact as they 
become available for review and comment.
    7. In the event modifications are made in the form of a proposed 
contract, the appropriate regional director shall

[[Page 46918]]

determine whether republication of the notice and/or extension of the 
comment period is necessary.
    Factors considered in making such a determination shall include, 
but are not limited to (i) the significance of the modification, and 
(ii) the degree of public interest which has been expressed over the 
course of the negotiations. At a minimum, the regional director shall 
furnish revised contracts to all parties who requested the contract in 
response to the initial public notice.
