SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document provides notice that the BLM Las Cruces District Office intends to prepare an EA and possible land use plan amendment for the Mimbres Planning Area, announces the beginning of the scoping process, and seeks public input on issues and planning criteria. The BLM is currently considering expanding the boundary of the Gila Lower Box Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), which would allow the BLM to provide special management to an area with significant scenic, cultural, and biological resources. The public land proposed for management as an ACEC is currently not part of the ACEC and is managed in accordance with the 1993 Mimbres RMP. Therefore, the RMP may need to be amended to identify the public land as suitable for ACEC designation. The public land is a portion of and within the following areas: emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: New Mexico Principal Meridian T. 19 S, R. 19 W. T. 19 S, R. 20 W. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the process for developing the EA. At present, the BLM VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:06 Jun 10, 2011 Jkt 223001 has identified the following preliminary issues: 1. How should the BLM design management to enhance the watershed? 2. What management is needed to address the significant cultural resources that occur in the watershed? 3. How should the BLM address land tenure in the area considering the RMP directs the Las Cruces District Office to acquire all State trust and private land in-holdings through exchange or purchase from willing sellers? 4. How should the BLM address increased interest in renewable energy development in the area? 5. How should the BLM address the eligibility of the Gila Lower Box as a Wild and Scenic River? 6. Which lands would be appropriate for ACEC designation and what management prescriptions should apply? 7. What potential impacts would this proposed action have on neighboring private landowners? 8. What effects would this proposed action have on recreation and tourism in the area? 9. What effects would this proposed action have on agricultural activities in the area? 10. Which species will benefit from an expanded ACEC? Authorization of this proposal requires amendment of the 1993 Mimbres RMP. By this notice, the BLM is complying with requirements in 43 CFR 1610.2(c) to notify the public of potential amendments to land use plans, predicated on the findings of the EA. If a land use plan amendment is necessary, the BLM will integrate the land use planning process with the NEPA process for this project. The BLM will utilize and coordinate the NEPA commenting process to satisfy the public involvement process for Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, 16 U.S.C. 470f, as provided for in 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). Native American tribal consultations will be conducted in accordance with policy, and tribal concerns will be given due consideration, including impacts on Indian trust assets. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with other stakeholders that may be interested or affected by the BLM’s decision on this project are invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be requested by the BLM to participate as a cooperating agency.
