Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 19590 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 29, 2009 / Notices off-road vehicle use including use on the following trails: Caribou Creek, Lost Creek, Trail Creek, Reeve Field, Boomerang Lake, Soda Lake, Suslota Lake, Copper Lake and Tanada Lake. The EIS will be used to guide the management of all ORV use. In addition to the No Action alternative, the EIS will evaluate a proposed action that would authorize recreational ORV use on trails that can be maintained to a standard that minimizes resource impacts. Other alternatives include authorizing recreational ORV use on all nine trails without trail improvement, not authorizing recreational ORV use on any trails, and authorizing recreational ORV use on improved trails in the preserve but not the park. Public input is sought on this range of alternatives. In all action alternatives, subsistence ORV use would be monitored and measures taken to mitigate resource impacts. Scoping: This notice extends the scoping period for this EIS and solicits comments. The NPS requests input from the public including local rural residents and residents of the park’s twenty-three resident zone communities who engage in subsistence activities within the park. 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. While you can ask us to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. We will always make submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, available for public inspection in their entirety. DATES: Comments should be received on or before June 29, 2009. Electronic comments may be submitted to the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) Web site at http:// parkplanning.nps.gov/WRST.

Based on comments received from the public, NPS developed a set of draft alternatives. An alternative package was sent out for public review and comment in December 2008. NPS received over 30 comments, nine of which requested that NPS consider reasonable regulation of subsistence ORV use within a range of alternatives. Public meetings will be held after the release of the Draft EIS, tentatively scheduled for Spring 2010. Public meetings will be held in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Tok, Glennallen, and Slana, Alaska. When public meetings have been scheduled, the dates, times, and locations will be announced in local newspapers and posted on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) Web site at http:// parkplanning.nps.gov/WRST.
