E9–30472 Filed 12–22–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–W8–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service Draft General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement, Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Sites, Hyde Park, NY AGENCY: National Park Service, Department of the Interior. ACTION: Notice of Availability of the Draft General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Sites, Hyde Park, New York. SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, the National Park Service announces the availability of the Draft General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (Draft GMP/EIS) for Roosevelt- PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Vanderbilt National Historic Sites, New York. Consistent with National Park Service laws, regulations, and policies, and the purposes of the National Historic Sites, the Draft GMP/EIS describes and analyzes three alternatives (No-Action, Action Alternative One, and Action Alternative Two) to guide the management of the National Historic Sites over the next 20 years. The Draft GMP/EIS covers the three units of the national park system that compose Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Sites: Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site; Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site; and Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site. The three national historic sites are combined into a single administrative unit, but each was established by separate legislation and each has its own purpose and significance. At present, management of the National Historic Sites is guided by three separate planning documents. Although a GMP was needed for each of the sites, a single unifying plan was deemed to be the most expeditious and critical for continued coordinated management. Primary planning issues include preservation and treatment of cultural resources, provision of visitor services, and partnership opportunities. The alternatives incorporate various management prescriptions to ensure protection, access, and enjoyment of the parks’ resources. The No Action Alternative would continue the current management direction. Action Alternative One would emphasize restoring historic appearance and encouraging visitors to explore more of the estate buildings and landscape. Action Alternative Two would seek to make the parks relevant to more audiences by encouraging greater civic participation in park activities, while significantly enhancing the historic character of park resources. Action Alternative Two is the National Park Service’s preferred alternative. The Draft GMP/EIS evaluates the potential environmental consequences of implementing the alternatives. Impact topics include the cultural, natural, and socioeconomic environments. DATES: The National Park Service will accept comments on the Draft GMP/EIS from the public for a period of 60 days following publication of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Notice of Availability in the Federal Register. The National Park Service will also hold a public forum to solicit comments on the Draft GMP/EIS during the public review period. The date, time and location will be announced in local E:\FR\FM\23DEN1.SGM 23DEN1
