SUMMARY: A parcel of public land totaling 92.26 acres in Bayfield County, Wisconsin, is being considered for sale under the provisions of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA) at no less than the appraised fair market value. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to sell the land using modified competitive sale procedures pursuant to 43 CFR 2711.3–2. DATES: Interested parties may submit written comments regarding the proposed sale to the BLM at the address listed below on or before December 4, 2009. The BLM will accept sealed bids for the offered land from qualified bidders no later than 4:30 p.m. CDT on December 21, 2009.

More detailed information concerning the sale including maps and the current appraisal will be available at: http:// www.blm.gov/es/st/en/fo/ milwaukeefo_html.html. The following described public land has been examined and found suitable for sale under the provisions of Section 203 of the FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1713) and implementing regulations at 43 CFR part 2711: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Fourth Principal Meridian T. 45 N., R. 6 W., Sec. 33, lots 8 to 12, inclusive. The area described contains 92.26 acres in Bayfield County. The BLM Wisconsin Resource Management Plan Amendment dated 2001 identified this parcel of land as suitable for disposal. The purpose of the sale is to dispose of land which is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the National System of Public Lands. Because the parcel has no legal access via a public road, the sale will be offered first by modified competitive sale procedures in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.3–2 to allow adjacent landowners an equal opportunity to successfully bid on the property. Bidding under the modified competitive sale procedures is only open to adjacent landowners who must submit sealed bids to the BLM, Milwaukee Field Office (address stated above), no later than 4:30 p.m. CDT, on December 21, 2009. If the adjacent landowners fail to exercise the preference consideration offered by the modified competitive sale, the parcel will remain available for sale on a continuing basis in accordance with competitive sale procedures found at 43 CFR 2711.3–1 without further legal notice. If the modified competitive sale held on December 21, 2009 is not successful, then bids will continue to be accepted by the BLM under competitive sale procedures. Bids submitted to the BLM under competitive sale procedures will be opened on a monthly basis on the first Friday of each month at 10 a.m. CDT, at the BLM, Milwaukee Field Office, until a successful bid is received or the offer is cancelled. Sealed bid envelopes must be clearly marked on the front lower left-hand PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 corner with ‘‘SEALED BID BLM LAND SALE WI, WIES–055403’’. The bid envelope must contain a signed statement showing the total amount of the bid and the name, mailing address, and phone number of the entity making the bid. Bids must be for not less than the federally appraised fair market value determination of the land. The appraised fair market value will be made available 30 days prior to the sealed bid closing date at the BLM, Milwaukee Field Office, and on the Web site (address and Web site stated above). Each sealed bid must be accompanied by a certified check, money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable to the Bureau of Land Management for an amount not less than 20 percent of the total amount of the bid. Personal checks will not be accepted. Sealed bids will be opened to determine the high bid at 10 a.m. CDT, December 21, 2009, at the BLM, Milwaukee Field Office (address stated above). The highest qualifying bid will be declared the high bid and the high bidder will receive written notice. Bidders submitting matching high bid amounts for the parcel will be provided an opportunity to submit a supplemental sealed bid. Bid deposits submitted by unsuccessful bidders will be returned by U.S. mail. The successful bidder will be allowed 180 days from the date of sale to submit the remainder of the full bid price in the form of a certified check, money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable to the Bureau of Land Management. Personal checks will not be accepted. Failure to submit the remainder of the full bid price prior to but not including the 180th day following the day of the sale, will result in the forfeiture of the bid deposit to the BLM, and the parcel will be offered to the second highest qualifying bidder at their original bid. Federal law requires that bidders must be (1) United States citizens 18 years of age or older, (2) a corporation subject to the laws of any State or of the United States, (3) an entity including, but not limited to associations or partnerships capable of acquiring and owning real property, or interests therein, under the laws of the State of Wisconsin, or (4) a State, State instrumentality, or political subdivision authorized to hold real property.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The CCP Process

    The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 
U.S.C. 668dd-668ee (Administration Act), as amended by the National 
Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1977, requires us to develop 
a CCP for each national wildlife refuge. The purpose of developing a 
CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving 
refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National 
Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS), consistent with sound principles of fish 
and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our 
policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on 
conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify wildlife-
dependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including 
opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, wildlife 
photography, and environmental education and interpretation. We will 
review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with 
the Administration Act.
    The Service will prepare a CCP/NEPA document in compliance with 
NEPA of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.); NEPA regulations (40 
CFR parts 1500-1508); other applicable Federal laws and regulations; 
and our policies and procedures for compliance with those laws and 
regulations.
    Each unit of the NWRS is established for specific purposes. These 
purposes guide development and prioritization of management goals and 
objectives within the NWRS mission and determine how the public can use 
each refuge. The planning process is a way for us and the public to 
evaluate management goals and objectives for the best possible 
conservation of important wildlife habitat, while providing for 
wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities that are compatible with 
the refuges' establishing purposes and the mission of the NWRS.
    We will conduct a planning process that provides opportunities for 
the public, Federal and local government agencies, Native Hawaiian 
organizations, and others to participate in issue scoping and public 
comment. We request input for issues, concerns, ideas, and suggestions 
for the future management of Ke[amacr]lia Pond and Kakahai`a NWRs.
    We will also give the public an opportunity to provide input at 
open houses to identify issues and concerns. All information provided 
voluntarily by mail, phone, or at public meetings becomes part of our 
official public record. We will handle requests for comments received 
in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, NEPA, and Service 
and Departmental policies and procedures.

The Refuges

    Ke[amacr]lia Pond and Kakahai`a NWRs are part of the Maui National 
Wildlife Refuge Complex. Located along the southern shore of Maui, 
Ke[amacr]lia Pond NWR was established in 1992 for the purpose of 
providing habitat for endangered Hawaiian waterbirds, specifically the 
ae'o or Hawaiian stilt, and 'alae ke'oke'o or Hawaiian coot.
    Ke[amacr]lia Pond is one of the largest natural wetlands remaining 
in the Hawaiian Islands. The 691-acre Refuge is administered under a 
perpetual conservation easement from Alexander and Baldwin, Inc. 
Habitats found on the Refuge include open water, fresh to brackish 
water marsh, mudflat, grassland, upland shrub, and coastal beach 
strand.
    Ke[amacr]lia Pond NWR contains one of the largest concentrations of 
wetland birds in Hawai'i and is an important breeding, feeding, and 
resting area for the Hawaiian stilt and Hawaiian coot. In addition, 
Ke[amacr]lia Pond NWR provides a strategic landfall for migratory birds 
coming from Alaska, Siberia, and Asia, including koloa mapu or Northern 
pintail, koloa moha or Northern shoveler, lesser scaup, kolea or 
Pacific golden-plover, and 'akekeke or ruddy turnstone. A total of 110 
bird species have been documented on the Refuge. The majority of the 
Refuge is closed to general public access; however, trails, overlooks, 
and educational programs provide the public with opportunities to view 
and appreciate some of Hawai'i's endangered and migratory wildlife.
    Kakahai`a NWR is located on the southeastern coast of Moloka'i. It 
was established to protect and provide habitat for endangered species. 
Habitats found on this Refuge include open water, freshwater marsh, 
mudflat, grassland, and shrubland. An inland Hawaiian fishpond is also 
located on the Refuge. The Refuge provides important breeding, feeding, 
and resting areas for endangered waterbirds, a variety of migratory 
waterfowl, shorebirds, and other wetland birds. Some of the more common 
migrants are koloa mapu or Northern pintail, and kolea or Pacific 
golden-plover. Kakahai`a NWR is closed to the general public; however, 
volunteers occasionally conduct wetland education programs.

Scoping: Preliminary Issues, Concerns, and Opportunities

    We have identified preliminary issues, concerns, and opportunities 
to be addressed in the CCP. Additional issues may be identified through 
public scoping.
    During the CCP planning process, the Service will analyze methods 
for enhancing the wildlife and habitat resources, visitor services, 
protection of cultural and historic resources, and facilities 
maintenance of the Ke[amacr]lia Pond and Kakahai`a NWRs while providing 
quality opportunities for wildlife-dependent recreation.

Public Meetings

    Public open house meetings will be held at the following locations 
to provide information on the CCP and receive public comments. 
Opportunities for additional public input will be announced throughout 
the planning process.
