Notice of Proposed Reinstatement of Terminated Oil and Gas Lease, 67195-67196 [E8-26942]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 220 / Thursday, November 13, 2008 / Notices 2007, through September 15, 2007. During the public review and comment period the Service held public meetings in Alatna, Allakaket, Bettles, Evansville, and Fairbanks. The planning team reviewed, analyzed, and summarized all comments received at the public meetings and in writing. We received a number of comments which suggested changes in the management category boundaries we had proposed in the draft plan. Generally, local residents and community leaders preferred that refuge lands adjoining private lands near their communities be in the moderate management category. Conversely, others preferred to see more of the refuge in the Minimal management category. In response to the comments received, we modified Alternative C, and adopted it as our management direction. Selected Alternative—Modified Alternative C Under the selected alternative, 13.6 percent of Federal lands within the refuge boundary are classified Moderate management. The original Alternative C classified 14.7 percent of refuge lands Moderate management. The main changes in the selected alternative were in location of Moderate management lands. In the northwestern portion of the refuge an area, which includes the upper reaches of Henshaw Creek, some Moderate management lands were reclassified Minimal management. The new northwestern boundary of the Moderate management area is offset 2 miles to the north of the AllakaketBettles trail. The lower boundary of this area remains the same as in the draft plan. An area of Minimal management south of Evansville and Bettles which is surrounded by private lands was reclassified Moderate management. Also, a smaller area of Minimal management south of Bettles which is surrounded by private lands, Moderate management, and the refuge boundary was reclassified Moderate management.
