Notice of Public Meeting, BLM Alaska Resource Advisory Council, 34152 [2010-14484]

Download as PDF 34152 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 115 / Wednesday, June 16, 2010 / Notices interpretation. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with the Administration Act. Our Draft CCP and Environmental Assessment (EA) were available for a 45day public review and comment period, which we announced via several methods, including press releases, updates to constituents, and a Federal Register notice (74 FR 28271, June 15, 2009). The Draft CCP/EA identified and evaluated four alternatives for managing the Refuge for the next 15 years. Alternative A was the no-action alternative, which described current Refuge management activities. Alternative B placed greater emphasis on biological resources than on visitor services. Alternative C (the selected alternative) provided an optimal balance of improved biological resource objectives and expanded visitor services opportunities. Alternative D placed greater emphasis on visitor services than on biological resources. We received 82 comment letters on the Draft CCP and EA during the review period. We incorporated these received comments into the CCP when possible, and we responded to the comments in an appendix to the CCP. In the FONSI, we selected Alternative C, the basis for the CCP, for implementation. The FONSI documents our decision and is based on the information and analysis contained in the EA. Under the selected alternative, the Refuges will achieve an optimal balance of biological resource objectives and visitor services opportunities. Habitat management and associated biological resource monitoring will be improved. Visitor service opportunities will focus on quality wildlife-dependent recreation distributed throughout the Refuge. Waterskiing on the Refuge-owned portion of Dorris Reservoir will be prohibited. In addition, environmental education, interpretation, wildlife observation, photography, fishing, and hunting programs will be improved and/or expanded. The selected alternative best meets the Refuge’s purposes, vision, and goals; contributes to the Refuge System mission; addresses the significant issues and relevant mandates; and is consistent with principles of sound fish and wildlife management.
