The Tribe has approximately 450 members and is governed by a Tribal Council consisting of five members, under a federally approved constitution. The Big Sandy Rancheria currently has a federally approved tribal-state gaming compact with the State of California. The Tribe is proposing to construct a gaming and entertainment facility that will include a gaming floor, restaurant and lounge facilities, an entertainment hall, a hotel and conference center, a multi-level parking garage, a water and wastewater treatment plant, a water supply system including water storage tanks, and an access driveway. The proposed buildings, not including the parking garage, would total VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:03 Jan 13, 2011 Jkt 223001 approximately 532,000 square feet of floor space. The proposed project will be located east of Friant in Fresno County, California, on undeveloped foothill property comprising approximately 48 acres of allotted Indian land currently held in trust by the United States for the beneficial interest of an individual member of the Tribe. The Tribe and the individual Indian allottee have executed and submitted for BIA approval a lease agreement granting use of the property to the Tribe for the development of a casino, resort hotel, and supporting facilities. The BIA’s proposed Federal action is the approval of the lease agreement. The BIA, serving as the lead agency for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), published a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare the EIS for the proposed action in the Federal Register on October 3, 2008 (73 FR 57646). The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) initiated the public scoping process, including a public scoping meeting on September 15, 2005, to determine the issues, concerns, and alternatives to be included in the EIS. From that scoping meeting, and from comments received following publication of the NOI, a range of project alternatives were developed and subsequently analyzed in the DEIS, including: (1) Proposed action—casino, resort hotel, multi-level parking structure, entertainment and convention facilities; (2) Reduced project with approximately 72 percent of the gaming capacity of the Proposed Action and similar reduction of the entertainment facility; (3) No hotel but otherwise the same as the Proposed Action; (4) Resort hotel with meeting facilities, a restaurant, a pool and spa and no gaming facilities; and (5) No action alternative. Environmental issues addressed in the DEIS include aesthetics and visual resources; agricultural resources; air quality; biological resources; cultural resources; geology, minerals, and paleontological resources; hazards and hazardous materials; hydrology, water quality, and water supply; land use and planning; noise; population and housing; public services; recreation; socioeconomics and environmental justice; traffic and transportation; utilities and service systems; cumulative effects; indirect effects; growth inducing effects; and mitigation measures.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM signed a Record of Decision and Plan of Operations approval on November 12, 2008, for the Cortez Gold Mines (CGM) Cortez Hills Expansion Project, which is an expansion of existing open-pit gold mining and processing operations in northeastern Nevada.

The Notice of Availability of the Final Cortez Hills Expansion Project EIS was published in the Federal Register on October 3, 2008. On December 3, 2009, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit partially reversed the U.S. District Court of Nevada’s denial of preliminary injunctive relief with respect to BLM’s environmental analysis of air quality and water resource issues. The BLM subsequently elected to prepare a Supplemental EIS to refine the analysis of potential air quality effects and the dewatering mitigation effectiveness for the Cortez Hills Expansion Project. A Notice of Intent to prepare a Supplemental EIS was published in the Federal Register on July 16, 2010. The Draft Supplemental EIS was released for public review on August 20, 2010, with a 45-day comment period. Following the release of the Draft Supplemental EIS, two public comment meetings were held, one in Crescent Valley and one in Battle Mountain in September 2010 to solicit additional comments on the document. Comments and resultant changes in the impact analyses are documented in the Final Supplemental EIS. Ron Wenker, State Director, Nevada. Authority: 40 CFR 1501.7.

ACTION: Notice of realty action. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is amending the segregative effect of two Recreation and Public Purposes (R&PP) Act classifications which are included in the Federal lands selected as part of the Muddy Mountain Land Exchange (exchange) in Natrona County, Wyoming. This action will modify the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 segregation to open the lands only to effect this exchange. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patrick J.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM is processing a proposed land exchange in Natrona County, Wyoming. The selected Federal lands include two R&PP leases to the Town of Midwest for a sewage lagoon site and a diving pond. Prior to issuance of the leases, the lands were classified for R&PP lease on November 3, 1978, and published in the Federal Register (62 FR 9446) which included segregation of the lands from the public land laws. In order for the R&PP leased land to be included in the exchange, the segregative effect of the classifications must be modified to allow for the exchange. Upon completion of the exchange, title to the lands encumbered by the R&PP leases will be transferred to the non-Federal party subject to the R&PP leases. Therefore, on January 14, 2011, the segregative effect of the classification for the Midwest sewage lagoon (WYW6327501) and the segregative effect of the classification for the Midwest diving pond (WYW13986001) is modified and the lands are opened only to transfer of title pursuant to the Muddy Mountain Land Exchange (WYW168824). Except for the Muddy Mountain exchange, the lands will continue to be segregated from the operation of the public land laws. Authority: 43 CFR 2741.5. Donald A. Simpson, State Director.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Big Sandy Rancheria is a federally 
recognized Indian tribe with a land base near Auberry, California. The 
Tribe has approximately 450 members and is governed by a Tribal Council 
consisting of five members, under a federally approved constitution. 
The Big Sandy Rancheria currently has a federally approved tribal-state 
gaming compact with the State of California.
    The Tribe is proposing to construct a gaming and entertainment 
facility that will include a gaming floor, restaurant and lounge 
facilities, an entertainment hall, a hotel and conference center, a 
multi-level parking garage, a water and wastewater treatment plant, a 
water supply system including water storage tanks, and an access 
driveway. The proposed buildings, not including the parking garage, 
would total approximately 532,000 square feet of floor space.
    The proposed project will be located east of Friant in Fresno 
County, California, on undeveloped foothill property comprising 
approximately 48 acres of allotted Indian land currently held in trust 
by the United States for the beneficial interest of an individual 
member of the Tribe. The Tribe and the individual Indian allottee have 
executed and submitted for BIA approval a lease agreement granting use 
of the property to the Tribe for the development of a casino, resort 
hotel, and supporting facilities. The BIA's proposed Federal action is 
the approval of the lease agreement.
    The BIA, serving as the lead agency for compliance with the 
National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), published a Notice of Intent 
(NOI) to prepare the EIS for the proposed action in the Federal 
Register on October 3, 2008 (73 FR 57646). The National Indian Gaming 
Commission (NIGC) initiated the public scoping process, including a 
public scoping meeting on September 15, 2005, to determine the issues, 
concerns, and alternatives to be included in the EIS. From that scoping 
meeting, and from comments received following publication of the NOI, a 
range of project alternatives were developed and subsequently analyzed 
in the DEIS, including: (1) Proposed action--casino, resort hotel, 
multi-level parking structure, entertainment and convention facilities; 
(2) Reduced project with approximately 72 percent of the gaming 
capacity of the Proposed Action and similar reduction of the 
entertainment facility; (3) No hotel but otherwise the same as the 
Proposed Action; (4) Resort hotel with meeting facilities, a 
restaurant, a pool and spa and no gaming facilities; and (5) No action 
alternative. Environmental issues addressed in the DEIS include 
aesthetics and visual resources; agricultural resources; air quality; 
biological resources; cultural resources; geology, minerals, and 
paleontological resources; hazards and hazardous materials; hydrology, 
water quality, and water supply; land use and planning; noise; 
population and housing; public services; recreation; socioeconomics and 
environmental justice; traffic and transportation; utilities and 
service systems; cumulative effects; indirect effects; growth inducing 
effects; and mitigation measures.
