ACTION: Notice of Intent to Initiate Review of Management Plan/ Regulations; Intent to Prepare Environmental Impact Statement; Scoping Meetings. SUMMARY: In accordance with section 304(e) of the National Marine Sanctuaries Act, as amended, (NMSA) (16 U.S.C. 1431 et seq.), the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has initiated a review of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (HIHWNMS or sanctuary) management plan, to evaluate substantive progress toward implementing the goals for the sanctuary, and to make revisions to its management plan and regulations as necessary to fulfill the purposes and policies of the NMSA and the Hawaiian Islands National Marine Sanctuary Act (HINMSA; Title II, Subtitle C, Pub. L. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:43 Jul 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 102–587). The present management plan was written as part of the sanctuary’s management plan review process in 2002 and did not contain any regulatory or boundary changes from the implementing regulations that became effective December 29, 1999 (64 FR 63262). NOAA anticipates completion of the revised management plan and concomitant documents will require approximately thirty-six months from the date of publication of this Notice of Intent. The management plan review process occurs concurrently with a public process under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). This notice also confirms that NOAA will coordinate its responsibilities under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA, 16 U.S.C. 470) with its ongoing NEPA process, pursuant to 36 CFR 800.8(a)—coordination with NEPA— including the use of NEPA documents and public and stakeholder meetings to also meet the section 106 requirements. DATES: All comments on issues related to the continued management of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary will be considered if received on or before October 16, 2010. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below for the dates, times, and locations of the public scoping meetings. ADDRESSES: All written inquiries and comments may be sent to: Management Plan Review Coordinator, Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, 6600 Kalaniana’ole Highway, Suite 301, Honolulu, Hawai’i 96825 or faxed to (808) 397–2650.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Malia Chow, Policy Advisor, Telephone: (808) 397–2651. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Information The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (sanctuary) was designated by Congress in 1992 as the 12th national marine sanctuary in the U.S. Its primary PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 40759 mission is to protect humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) and their habitat in Hawai’i. The sanctuary enables citizens and government to work collectively on safeguarding humpback whale breeding and calving range in waters around the main Hawaiian Islands, an area that supports over half the North Pacific humpback whale population and constitutes one of the world’s most important humpback whale habitats. Encompassing 3,548 square kilometers (1,370 square miles) of federal and state waters surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands, the sanctuary extends from the shoreline to the 100-fathom isobath (183-meter or 600 foot depth) and is composed of five separate marine protected areas (MPAs) accessible from six of the eight main Hawaiian Islands. The sanctuary’s configuration presents unique challenges and opportunities for protecting sanctuary resources, developing programs, and increasing public awareness of humpback whales throughout the state. In accordance with Section 304(e) of the National Marine Sanctuaries Act, as amended (NMSA), 16 U.S.C. 1431 et seq., the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is initiating a review of the current management plan to evaluate the substantive progress made toward implementing the goals for the sanctuary, and to make revisions to the plan and regulations as necessary to fulfill the purposes and policies of the NMSA. The proposed revised management plan may involve changes to existing policies and regulations of the sanctuary, as well as address current and emerging topics, challenges, and opportunities to better protect and manage the sanctuary’s resources and qualities. The review process is composed of four primary stages: (1) Information collection and characterization, including public scoping meetings; (2) Preparation and release of a revised draft management plan/ environmental evaluation that includes any proposed new regulations or amendments to current regulations; (3) Public review and comment on the draft plan; and (4) Preparation and release of a final management plan/environmental evaluation that could also include new regulations to fully implement the revised management plan. NOAA anticipates that the completion of the revised management plan and concomitant documents will require approximately twenty-four to thirty-six months.

Solicit public comments and identify issues on the continued management of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary; and 2. Help determine the scope of issues to be addressed in the preparation of a management plan and an environmental impact statement (EIS) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), if warranted; and 3. Conduct a series of statewide scoping meetings across the State of Hawai’i to collect public comment. The intent of the scoping meetings is to gather information and other comments from individuals, organizations, and government agencies on the scope, types, and significance of issues related to the sanctuary’s management plan and regulations. These scoping meetings will also help determine the scope of issues to be addressed in the preparation of an EIS pursuant to the NEPA, 43 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., if warranted. The public scoping meeting schedule is presented below. This notice confirms that NOAA will coordinate its responsibilities under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA, 16 U.S.C. 470) with its ongoing NEPA process, pursuant to 36 CFR 800.8(a)— coordination with NEPA—including the use of NEPA documents and public and stakeholder meetings to also meet the section 106 requirements. The NHPA specifically applies to any agency undertaking that has an adverse effect on historic properties. Pursuant to 36 CFR 800.16(1)(1), historic properties includes: ‘‘any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure or object included in, or eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places maintained by the Secretary of the Interior. The term includes artifacts, records, and remains that are related to and located within such properties. The term includes properties of traditional religious and cultural importance to an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization and that meet the National Register criteria.’’ In coordinating its responsibilities under the NHPA and NEPA, NOAA intends to identify consulting parties; identify historic properties and assess the effects of the undertaking on such properties; initiate formal consultation with the Hawaii State Historic Preservation Officer, the Advisory Council of Historic Preservation, and other consulting parties; involve the public in accordance with NOAA’s NEPA procedures, and develop in consultation with identified consulting VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:43 Jul 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 parties alternatives and proposed measures that might avoid, minimize or mitigate any adverse effects on historic properties and describe them in any Environmental Assessment or Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background Information

    The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary 
(sanctuary) was designated by Congress in 1992 as the 12th national 
marine sanctuary in the U.S. Its primary mission is to protect humpback 
whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) and their habitat in Hawai'i. The 
sanctuary enables citizens and government to work collectively on 
safeguarding humpback whale breeding and calving range in waters around 
the main Hawaiian Islands, an area that supports over half the North 
Pacific humpback whale population and constitutes one of the world's 
most important humpback whale habitats. Encompassing 3,548 square 
kilometers (1,370 square miles) of federal and state waters surrounding 
the main Hawaiian Islands, the sanctuary extends from the shoreline to 
the 100-fathom isobath (183-meter or 600 foot depth) and is composed of 
five separate marine protected areas (MPAs) accessible from six of the 
eight main Hawaiian Islands. The sanctuary's configuration presents 
unique challenges and opportunities for protecting sanctuary resources, 
developing programs, and increasing public awareness of humpback whales 
throughout the state.
    In accordance with Section 304(e) of the National Marine 
Sanctuaries Act, as amended (NMSA), 16 U.S.C. 1431 et seq., the Office 
of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) of the National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is initiating a review of the current 
management plan to evaluate the substantive progress made toward 
implementing the goals for the sanctuary, and to make revisions to the 
plan and regulations as necessary to fulfill the purposes and policies 
of the NMSA. The proposed revised management plan may involve changes 
to existing policies and regulations of the sanctuary, as well as 
address current and emerging topics, challenges, and opportunities to 
better protect and manage the sanctuary's resources and qualities. The 
review process is composed of four primary stages:
    (1) Information collection and characterization, including public 
scoping meetings;
    (2) Preparation and release of a revised draft management plan/
environmental evaluation that includes any proposed new regulations or 
amendments to current regulations;
    (3) Public review and comment on the draft plan; and
    (4) Preparation and release of a final management plan/
environmental evaluation that could also include new regulations to 
fully implement the revised management plan.
    NOAA anticipates that the completion of the revised management plan 
and concomitant documents will require approximately twenty-four to 
thirty-six months.

[[Page 40760]]

    NOAA is opening a public comment period to:
    1. Solicit public comments and identify issues on the continued 
management of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine 
Sanctuary; and
    2. Help determine the scope of issues to be addressed in the 
preparation of a management plan and an environmental impact statement 
(EIS) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), if 
warranted; and
    3. Conduct a series of statewide scoping meetings across the State 
of Hawai'i to collect public comment. The intent of the scoping 
meetings is to gather information and other comments from individuals, 
organizations, and government agencies on the scope, types, and 
significance of issues related to the sanctuary's management plan and 
regulations. These scoping meetings will also help determine the scope 
of issues to be addressed in the preparation of an EIS pursuant to the 
NEPA, 43 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., if warranted. The public scoping meeting 
schedule is presented below.
    This notice confirms that NOAA will coordinate its responsibilities 
under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA, 16 
U.S.C. 470) with its ongoing NEPA process, pursuant to 36 CFR 
800.8(a)--coordination with NEPA--including the use of NEPA documents 
and public and stakeholder meetings to also meet the section 106 
requirements. The NHPA specifically applies to any agency undertaking 
that has an adverse effect on historic properties. Pursuant to 36 CFR 
800.16(1)(1), historic properties includes: ``any prehistoric or 
historic district, site, building, structure or object included in, or 
eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places 
maintained by the Secretary of the Interior. The term includes 
artifacts, records, and remains that are related to and located within 
such properties. The term includes properties of traditional religious 
and cultural importance to an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian 
organization and that meet the National Register criteria.''
    In coordinating its responsibilities under the NHPA and NEPA, NOAA 
intends to identify consulting parties; identify historic properties 
and assess the effects of the undertaking on such properties; initiate 
formal consultation with the Hawaii State Historic Preservation 
Officer, the Advisory Council of Historic Preservation, and other 
consulting parties; involve the public in accordance with NOAA's NEPA 
procedures, and develop in consultation with identified consulting 
parties alternatives and proposed measures that might avoid, minimize 
or mitigate any adverse effects on historic properties and describe 
them in any Environmental Assessment or Draft Environmental Impact 
Statement.
