VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:27 May 27, 2011 Jkt 223001 ACTION: Notice. Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4332(C)), and the Wilderness Act of 1964 (16 U.S.C. 1131 et seq.), the National Park Service (NPS) is preparing an environmental impact statement for a general management plan amendment, including a wilderness study, for Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, Alaska. The environmental impact statement will be approved by the Regional Director, Alaska Region. The general management plan amendment will establish the overall direction for both the park and preserve (referred to hereafter as the park), setting broad management goals for managing the area during the next 15 to 20 years. The plan will prescribe desired resource conditions and visitor experiences that are to be achieved and maintained throughout the park based on such factors as the park’s purpose, significance, special mandates, the body of laws and policies directing park management, resource analysis, and the range of public expectations and concerns. The plan also will outline the kinds of resource management activities, visitor activities, and developments that would be appropriate in the park in the future. In addition, the plan will generally address visitor-use related issues and provide management direction for the three designated wild rivers within the park. The wilderness study will evaluate portions of Lake Clark National Park and Preserve for possible designation as wilderness. The wilderness study will be included as part of the general management plan. A range of reasonable alternatives for managing the park will be developed through this planning process and will include, at a minimum, a no-action and an NPS-preferred alternative. Major issues the plan will address include: Visitor access and use of the park; the adequacy and sustainability of existing visitor facilities and park operations; and the management of wilderness, natural and cultural resources, commercial services, and cabins. The environmental impact statement will evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the alternative management approaches and the possible designation of wilderness within the park. All interested persons, organizations, and agencies are encouraged to submit comments and suggestions on issues and concerns that should be addressed in the general management plan amendment/wilderness study/ environmental impact statement, and the range of appropriate alternatives that should be examined. Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Public scoping will begin in Spring 2011 via a newsletter to state and federal agencies; associated American Indian tribes; associated Native corporations; neighboring communities; borough commissioners; local organizations, researchers and institutions; the congressional delegation; and other interested members of the public. Public scoping meetings regarding the general management plan amendment will be held in Spring 2011 in Anchorage, Soldotna, and Homer and in the resident zone communities of Port Alsworth, Nondalton, Pedro Bay, and Newhalen. Specific dates, times, and locations will be announced in the local media, on the Internet at http:// www.nps.gov/lacl, and will also be available by contacting the park/ preserve headquarters. In addition to attending the scoping meetings, people wishing to provide input may mail or email comments to the park/preserve at the address below. Written comments concerning the scope of the general management plan amendment/wilderness study/ environmental impact statement will be accepted for 60 days from the publication of this notice. DATES: SUMMARY: PO 00000 31359 Sfmt 4703 Comments on issues and opportunities associated with the plan may be submitted by several methods. You may comment via the Internet to http://parkplanning.nps.gov/lacl.

    Abstract: This set of information collection requirements has an 
impact on State, tribal, and local governments that wish to participate 
formally in the National Historic Preservation Partnership (NHPP) 
Program, and State and tribal governments that wish to apply for 
Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grants. The National Historic 
Preservation Act (16 U.S.C. 470 et seq.), as amended, established these 
programs. Implementing regulations at 36 CFR part 61 detail the 
processes for approval of State and tribal programs, the certification 
of local governments, and the monitoring and evaluation of State and 
certified local government programs. We developed the information 
collections associated with 36 CFR part 61 in consultation with

[[Page 31359]]

State, tribal, and local government partners.
    The NPS uses the information to ensure compliance with the National 
Historic Preservation Act, as amended (16 USC 470 et seq.), as well as 
governmentwide grant requirements and Department of the Interior 
regulations at 43 CFR part 12. This information collection also 
produces performance data that we use to assess program effectiveness.
    Comments: On March 25, 2011, we published in the Federal Register 
(76 FR 16813) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval 
for this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments 
for 60 days, ending on May 24, 2011. We did not receive any comments.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail 
address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you 
should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal 
identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. 
While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it 
will be done.
