L. 91–190) and the Council on Environmental Quality’s implementing regulations (40 CFR 1502.9(c)) the National Park Service has initiated the public scoping phase for the conservation planning and environmental impact analysis process needed to identify and assess potential impacts of alternatives for resource protection and other considerations within the Honouliuli Special Resource Study area in Honolulu, Maui, Hawaii, SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\02MYN1.SGM 02MYN1 mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES6 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 84 / Monday, May 2, 2011 / Notices and Kauai Counties of Hawaii. The purpose of the scoping phase is to elicit early public comment regarding issues and concerns, preliminary alternatives, and the nature and extent of potential environmental impacts (and as appropriate, mitigation measures) which should be addressed. Background: As authorized by the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111– 88- October, 2009), the National Park Service (NPS) is conducting a special resource study of the area known as Honouliuli Gulch, and associated sites. The study evaluates the Honouliuli Gulch Internment Camp and associated sites located on Oahu and five other islands located in the State of Hawaii with respect to (1) Their significance as components of World War II; (2) significance of the sites as related to the forcible internment of Japanese Americans, European Americans, and other individuals; and (3) historic resources at the sites. In conducting the study, the NPS study team shall use criteria for potential inclusion within the National Park System as described in § 8 of Public Law 91–383 (16 U.S.C. 1a–5). The Special Resource Study will evaluate the national significance, suitability, and feasibility of including the Honouliuli Gulch and associated sites in the National Park System. Factors which the NPS study team will evaluate include: The value of the site in interpreting the themes of our nation’s heritage; the integrity of the site’s resources; whether the study area includes types or quality of resources not already adequately represented in the National Park System; whether longterm protection and public use of the area are feasible; and whether the area can be adequately protected and administered at a reasonable cost. The authorizing statute directs the NPS to consult with (1) The State of Hawaii; (2) appropriate Federal agencies; (3) Native Hawaiian and local government entities; (4) private and nonprofit organizations; (5) private landowners; and (6) other interested parties. Recommendations of the NPS study team may vary for different portions of the study area. The NPS study team will also consider alternative strategies for management, protection and use of significant resources within the overall study area, including management by other public agencies or the private sector; technical or financial assistance available from established programs or special initiatives and partnerships; and cooperative management by NPS and other entities.

The NPS study team will conduct an environmental review of the alternatives and potential consequences of resource protection considerations as part of the Honouliuli Special Resource Study. At this time, it has not been determined whether an Environmental Assessment or an Environmental Impact Statement will be prepared, however, this scoping phase will aid in the preparation of either document, and public comments will aid in making this determination. The public will have several opportunities to comment and participate throughout the study process. Additionally, the public will be afforded the opportunity to review and comment on the ensuing environmental document following its release. For initial scoping and alternatives development, the most useful comments are those that provide the NPS with assistance in identifying issues and concerns which should be addressed, or providing important information germane to this study. All responses to this Scoping Notice will also be used to establish a mailing list of interested persons, organizations, and agencies that desire to receive further information as the environmental document is developed.
