Over The RiverTM was informally proposed by the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude in 1996. Based on OTR Corp.’s verbal proposal, the BLM started conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) and held public meetings between 1997 and 2000. The BLM initiated an informal scoping period through eight public meetings held in communities within the proposed project area from April 1997 to October 2000. OTR Corp. reapproached the BLM about the proposed project in August 2005. Additional EA-level scoping occurred in January and February 2006. The BLM also hosted interagency meetings with CDOT, DNR, Fremont County, Chaffee County, and CSP on May 24, 2006, to discuss and understand the public comments and questions. The scoping comments led to a Notice Of Intent (NOI) published in the Federal Register on June 19, 2006 (71 FR 35289), announcing the intent to prepare an EIS based on several factors, including a specific request from the applicants; the increasing complexity of the project; the level of controversy related to the project; and the level of involvement during the scoping process. The NOI was also advertised in local newspapers. The OTR Corp. and the BLM developed and signed a Memorandum of Understanding for EIS preparation in May 2007. OTR Corp. delivered a Design and Planning Report in 2007 that included a preliminary set of alternatives. However, the 2007 report did not include some of the details previously requested by the BLM and cooperating agencies that were necessary to move forward with the EIS. In April 2008, the BLM received a Detailed Design Proposal including additional project information with the level of detail necessary to move forward with the EIS. This led to the process of filing an upper-level-agency review of a Notice of Realty Action, published in the Federal Register on October 31, 2008 (73 FR 64982). This Draft EIS analyzes seven separate alternatives, including the No Action Alternative. The action alternatives were developed to consider and compare configurations of public lands that could be made available for artistic panel placement as well as construction, logistics, traffic planning, and visitor management. The process of developing a range of alternatives began with a review of the artists’ proposal and public and agency scoping comments, as well as a series of cooperating agency meetings. The following four project components, each of which could be VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:00 Jul 15, 2010 Jkt 220001 altered in various ways to respond to known issues and concerns, formed the basis of the alternatives development process: panel placement, transportation, visitor management, and temporal considerations. The primary issues that were identified as key general concerns of the public, project team staff, and cooperators that are further analyzed in this Draft EIS include: emergency response; project engineering; natural and cultural resources (including soils, geology, noxious weeds, and wildland fire); pollution and sanitation; public safety; recreation; socioeconomics; transportation; and wildlife.
