Notice of Utah's Resource Advisory Council (RAC) Meeting, 39098 [E9-18681]

Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 39098 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 149 / Wednesday, August 5, 2009 / Notices The BLM is committed to provide, and receive fair value for the use of developed recreation facilities and services in a manner that meets public use demands, provides quality experiences and protects important resources. The BLM’s policy is to collect fees at all specialized recreation sites, or where the BLM provides facilities, equipment or services, at Federal expense, in connection with outdoor use as authorized by the REA. In an effort to meet increasing demands for services and maintenance of developed facilities, the BLM would implement a fee program for the camping areas. BLM’s mission for the camping areas is to ensure that funding is available to maintain facilities and recreational opportunities, to provide for law enforcement presence, to develop additional services, and to protect resources. This mission entails communication with those who will be most directly affected by the camping areas, for example recreationists, other recreation providers, partners, neighbors, and those who will have a stake in solving concerns that may arise throughout the life of the camping areas, including elected officials, and other agencies. Development of the Moab Skyway Group Site and the Entrada Bluffs, Bartlett and Courthouse camping areas is consistent with the 2008 Moab Resource Management Plan and was analyzed in the Environmental Impact Statement accompanying the plan (EIS UT–060–2007–04). Camping and group use fees would be consistent with other established fee sites in the area including other BLM administered sites in the area and those managed by the USDA Forest Service, USDI National Park Service, and Utah State Parks and Recreation. Future adjustments in the fee amount will be made following the Moab Field Office’s recreation fee business plan covering the sites, consultation with the Utah Recreation Resource Advisory Committee and other public notice prior to a fee adjustment. In December 2004, the REA was signed into law. The REA provides authority for 10 years for the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture to establish, modify, charge, and collect recreation fees for use of some Federal recreation lands and waters, and contains specific provisions addressing public involvement in the establishment of recreation fees, including a requirement that Recreation Resource Advisory Committees or Councils have the opportunity to make recommendations regarding establishment of such fees. REA also directed the Secretaries of the Interior VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:54 Aug 04, 2009 Jkt 217001 and Agriculture to publish advance notice in the Federal Register whenever new recreation fee areas are established under their respective jurisdictions. In accordance with the BLM recreation fee program policy, the Moab Field Office’s recreation fee business plan both explains the fee collection process and how the fees will be used at the four sites. BLM will notify and involve the public at each stage of the planning process, including the proposal to collect fees. The Utah RRAC will review the fee proposals at its next meeting, following REA guidelines. Fee amounts will be posted on-site, and at the Moab Field Office, and copies of the business plan will be available at the Moab Field Office and the BLM Utah State Office. BLM welcomes public comments on this proposal. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire comment— including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 6803(b).
