Applicants’ Proposed Project: We received applications from the applicants for incidental take permits, along with a proposed habitat conservation plan. The applicants both request 5-year permits under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act (87 Stat. 884; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). If we approve the permits, the applicants anticipate taking a total of approximately 1.75 acres (0.71 hectares (ha)) of scrub-jay breeding, feeding, and sheltering habitat srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:12 Mar 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 incidental to land preparation for the extension and paving of a road, the construction of a fellowship hall and storm water retention area, and the expansion and paving of a parking lot and supporting infrastructure (project) in Indian River County, Florida. Project construction would take place at latitude 27.7508, longitude ¥80.4451, Indian River County, Florida. The project includes Indian River County Parcels 31392800007000000001.0, 31392800007000000002.0, 31392800007000000003.0, and 31392800000500000023.0. These parcels are within scrub-jay–occupied habitat. The Service listed this species as threatened in 1987 (June 3, 1987; 52 FR 20715). The listing became effective July 6, 1987. The applicants propose to mitigate the permanent alteration of occupied scrubjay habitat by restoring, conserving, and managing a total of 3.81 acres (1.54 ha) of upland scrub in perpetuity. A separate endowment fund, in the amount of $4,572.00, will be established to ensure that the mitigation areas are properly managed in perpetuity. Our Preliminary Determination: The Service has made a preliminary determination that the applicants’ project, including the proposed minimization and mitigation measures, will individually and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, issuance of the ITPs is a ‘‘low-effect’’ action and qualifies as a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (40 CFR 1506.6), as provided by the Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2 Appendix 1 and 516 DM 6 Appendix 1), and as defined in our Habitat Conservation Planning Handbook (November 1996). We base our determination that issuance of the ITPs qualifies as a low-effect action on the following three criteria: (1) Implementation of the project would result in minor or negligible effects on Federally listed, proposed, and candidate species and their habitats; (2) Implementation of the project would result in minor or negligible effects on other environmental values or resources; and (3) Impacts of the project, considered together with the impacts of other past, present, and reasonably foreseeable similarly situated projects, would not result, over time, in cumulative effects to environmental values or resources that would be considered significant. As more fully explained in our environmental action statement and associated Low Effect Screening Form, the applicants’ proposed project qualifies as a ‘‘low- PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 effect’’ project. This preliminary determination may be revised based on our review of public comments that we receive in response to this notice. Next Steps: The Service will evaluate the HCP and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the applications meet the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act. The Service will also evaluate whether issuance of the section 10(a)(1)(B) ITPs complies with section 7 of the Act by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation. The results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, will be used in the final analysis to determine whether or not to issue the ITPs. If it is determined that the requirements of the Act are met, the ITPs will be issued for the incidental take of the Florida scrub-jay. Authority: This notice is provided pursuant to Section 10 of the Endangered Species Act and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6). Dated: February 11, 2011.

ACTION: Notice of temporary closure. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that the Big Fire (#FNW4) and Hot Tea Fire (#FTF6) closures to motorized vehicle use are in effect on public lands administered by the Four Rivers Field Office, Bureau of Land Management (BLM). DATES: The closures will be in effect on the date this notice is published in the Federal Register and will remain in effect for 2 years or until rescinded or modified by the authorized officer or designated Federal officer. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Terry Humphrey, Four Rivers Field Manager, at 3948 Development Avenue, Boise, Idaho 83705, via e-mail at terry_humphrey@blm.gov, or phone (208) 384–3430.

The FIRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to leave a message or question with the above individual. You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Big Fire closure affects public lands located in Ada County, Idaho approximately 3 miles northwest of Eagle, Idaho, which burned on July 28, 2010. The legal description of the affected public lands is: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:12 Mar 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 Boise Meridian, Idaho T. 5 N., R. 1 W., Secs. 22 through 27, inclusive. T. 5 N., R. 1 E., Sec. 19; Sec. 30. The areas described contain approximately 1,920 acres. The Big Fire closure is necessary because occupied and potential habitat for slickspot peppergrass, a species listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, is at risk from further damage by motorized vehicles. The closure area includes a designated management area for slickspot peppergrass (MA–2C). The closure will allow burned areas to re-establish a vegetative cover which protects the soil from erosion and provides for moisture retention. The closure will help to ensure the long-term viability of slickspot peppergrass plants and their associated habitat in this area. The Hot Tea closure affects public lands in Elmore County, Idaho, burned August 27–29, 2010, by the Hot Tea Fire, 12 miles northwest of Mountain Home, Idaho. Unburned public lands in the Thorn Creek Pasture (#4) of the Hammett #6 Allotment and north of the powerline in the Lower Bennett Creek Allotment will also be closed. The legal description of the affected public lands is: Boise Meridian, Idaho T. 2 S., R. 8 E., Secs. 24 through 26, inclusive; Secs. 34 through 35, inclusive. T. 2 S., R. 9 E., Secs. 30 through 31, inclusive. T. 3 S., R. 8 E., Sec. 2; Secs. 12 through 13, inclusive; Secs. 24 through 25, inclusive. T. 3 S., R. 9 E., Secs. 5 through 8, inclusive; Secs. 17 through 20, inclusive; Secs. 28 through 30, inclusive. The areas described contain approximately 6,900 acres. The Hot Tea Fire closure is necessary to protect critical winter habitat for elk and mule deer as well as important sage-grouse habitat. The closure will help to slow the spread of noxious weeds; allow planted shrub, forb, and grass species to become established; and allow existing plants to recover from the effects of the fire. The closure will help ensure the long-term viability of habitat for wildlife populations in the area. The BLM will post closure signs at main entry points to the closed areas and/or other locations on-site. This closure will also be posted in the BLM Boise District office. Maps of the affected area and other documents associated with this closure are PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12753 available at 3948 Development Avenue, Boise, Idaho 83705.
