Notice of Filing of Plats of Survey; Montana, 48722-48723 [2010-19801]

Download as PDF sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES 48722 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 154 / Wednesday, August 11, 2010 / Notices ORVs was determined to be traditionally employed for subsistence activities in the 1986 General Management Plan. Beginning in 1983, the park issued permits for recreational ORV use of these established trails, initially in accordance with 36 CFR 13.14(c), which was replaced by 43 CFR 36.11(g)(2) in 1986. The park issues 200 recreational ORV permits per year on average. The trails also provide for subsistence ORV use and access to inholdings. On June 29, 2006, the National Parks Conservation Association, Alaska Center for the Environment, and The Wilderness Society (Plantiffs) filed a lawsuit against NPS in the United States District Court for the District of Alaska regarding recreational ORV use on the nine trails that are the subject of this EIS. The plaintiffs challenged the NPS issuance of recreational ORV permits asserting that NPS failed to make the required finding that recreational ORV use is compatible with the purposes and values of the Park and Preserve. They also claimed that the NPS failed to prepare an environmental analysis of recreational ORV use as required by NEPA. In the May 15, 2007, settlement agreement, NPS agreed to endeavor to complete an EIS, Record of Decision (ROD) and compatibility determination by December 31, 2010, during which time recreational use of ORVs on the Suslota Lake Trail, Tanada Lake Trail, and a portion of the Copper Lake Trail will be permitted only when the ground is frozen. The NPS may continue to issue permits for recreational ORV use of the remaining six trails through the year 2010. The DEIS considers a reasonable range of alternatives based on project purpose and need, and considering park resources and values, and public input. For recreational ORV use in national preserves, Section 4.10(b) of the NPS regulations in Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) implements Executive Orders 11644 and 11989 and provides that routes and areas designated for off-road vehicle use be promulgated as special regulations. Alternatives that consider recreational ORV use on park land or closure of areas to subsistence use of ORVs (confined to trails) would also require a park-specific regulation. Alternative 1 evaluates the impacts of the no-action and describes conditions under the lawsuit settlement. Recreational ORV use would be permitted on all trails except Suslota, Tanada Lake, or Copper Lake trails, until the ground is frozen. There would VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:52 Aug 10, 2010 Jkt 220001 be no change to subsistence ORV use and no trail improvements. Alternative 2 would permit recreational ORV use on all nine trails. There would be no change to subsistence ORV use and no trail improvements. Alternative 3 would prohibit recreational ORV use. Subsistence ORV use would continue, and some trail improvements would be made. Trail conditions would be monitored, and adaptive management steps would be taken to prevent further resource degradation. Alternative 4 would permit recreational ORV use on designated trails in the preserve (Caribou Creek, Lost Creek, Trail Creek, Soda Lake, Reeve Field) once improvements are made, but not in the park (Tanada Lake, Copper Lake, Boomerang). All trails (except Suslota) would be improved to at least a maintainable condition through trail hardening, tread improvement, or constructed re-routes. Subsistence ORV use would continue subject to monitoring and management activities in the same manners as alternative 3. Alternative 5 would permit recreational ORV use on all nine trails. All trails (except Suslota) would be improved to at least a maintainable condition as under alternative 4. Until improved, recreational ORV use would not be permitted on trails with the most resource degradation (Tanada Lake, Suslota, and Copper Lake) and subsistence ORV use would continue to be subject to monitoring and adaptive management steps in the same manner as alternative 3, and would be confined to trails in park wilderness. Alternative 5 is the NPS Preferred Alternative. Public meetings will be held in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Tok, Slana, and Glennallen, Alaska.
