ACTION: Notice of temporary closure. SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has closed approximately 210 acres of public land described as the Airport Mesa/Carrizo Creek shooting area located in eastern San Diego County, California. The closure order prohibits recreational shooting and target practice. The use of firearms will continue to be allowed for hunting consistent with California Department of Fish and Game regulations and seasons. This closure order is necessary in order to protect U.S. Border Patrol agents as they perform their duties along the top of Airport Mesa. DATES: The closure order is effective as of September 23, 2009 until September 22, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Daniel Steward, BLM El Centro Field Office, 1661 S. 4th St., El Centro, CA 92243, telephone (760) 337–4400. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM recognizes that recreational target shooting is a valid use of public lands and seeks to balance this with the need to provide for public safety. The BLM El Centro Field Office prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for this temporary closure (EA670–2010–1). This two-year temporary closure will allow the BLM to prepare a land use plan amendment and utilize public input to consider a permanent closure of the area and options for alternative recreational shooting areas. The purpose of this closure order is to protect persons, property, and public land and resources, including the protection of U.S. Border Patrol agents as they perform their duties along the top of Airport Mesa.

SUMMARY: Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C) of the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 and National Park Service (NPS) policy in Director's 
Order Number 2 (Park Planning) and Director's Order Number 12 
(Conservation Planning, Environmental Impact Analysis, and Decision-
making) the NPS announces the availability of a FEIS/GMP for the 
Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site, Tuskegee, Alabama. The document 
provides a framework for management, use, and development options for 
the historic site by the NPS for the next 15 to 20 years. It describes 
and analyzes five management alternatives for consideration, including 
a No-Action Alternative.
    Alternative A is the No-Action Alternative, which would continue 
current management practices and trends, with no major changes in 
direction.
    Alternative B emphasizes the natural environment by keeping the 
site largely undeveloped and natural in character outside of the core 
historic areas. Potential areas for visitor interpretive programs are 
the most limited in this alternative.
    Alternative C emphasizes the restoration of the most areas of the 
park to the 1941-1945 historic period of significance, while providing 
an emphasis on the natural environment outside of the core historic and 
visitor areas.
    Alternative D is the NPS's preferred and the environmentally 
preferred alternative. In addition to preserving the core historic 
area, Alternative D offers a high potential for interpretive and 
educational opportunities, and aims to provide the most diversity of 
visitor interpretive programs and recreational opportunities.
    Alternative E would emphasize the restoration of a large portion of 
the park to the 1941-1945 historic period of significance, while 
offering the most recreational opportunities of all the alternatives.
    The FEIS/GMP evaluates potential environmental consequences of 
implementing the five alternatives. It describes and analyzes potential 
impacts of the affected cultural and natural resources, socioeconomic 
environments, visitor use and experience, and NPS operations within and 
near the park. Eleven resource topics are also addressed, including 
archeological resources; cultural landscapes, including historic 
buildings, structures, and districts; water resources; water quality; 
floodplains; soils; vegetation and wetlands; wildlife; special status 
species; ecologically critical areas; and natural soundscapes.

Notice of Availability in the Federal Register.
