SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: After extensive environmental analysis, collaborative public processes, consideration of public comments, and application of pertinent Federal laws and policies, it is the decision of the BLM to issue a right-of-way grant to Garkane Energy, Inc. for the construction, operation, and maintenance of approximately 7.1 miles of a 138 kV transmission line and access routes for the construction of the project across public lands administered by the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Office (3.7 miles) and the Kanab Field Office (3.4 miles); and to amend the Grand Staircase-Escalante National MMP to provide for such action. The right-of-way grant will authorize the use of public lands for the project for a term of 30 years, which is subject to renewal. The Approved MMP Amendment allows for the issuance of this right-of-way grant by changing a zoning decision in the MMP from Primitive Zone to a 300-foot-wide Passage Zone to accommodate an existing transmission line and route, as well as the Applicant’s proposed power line. The MMP Amendment also changes the Visual Resource Management classification from a Class II to a Class III to allow for additional modifications to the landscape within the 300-foot-wide zone. Amendment of the MMP and granting the right-of-way will have minimal effect on the VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:00 Sep 13, 2011 Jkt 223001 landforms, cultural features, or other important values specifically enumerated in the Grand StaircaseEscalante National Monument Proclamation, as they would be minimized through implementation of mitigation described in the ROD. The U.S. Forest Service, Dixie National Forest, was the lead Federal agency for completion of the EIS, with the BLM and the National Park Service serving as cooperating agencies. The agencies sought participation from the public, tribes, and local, state, and Federal agencies throughout the EIS process. In addition to the 7.1 miles of power line located on public land, the proposal, in total, encompasses another 22.3 miles of power line that traverse U.S. Forest Service, private, and state lands. A separate ROD was issued by the U.S. Forest Service in April, 2011 for granting of the special use permit across U.S. Forest Service lands. The selected alternative avoids construction of the power line across National Park Service lands. The U.S. Forest Service and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) each published a Notice of Availability (NOA) of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)/Draft MMP Amendment for public review and comment in the Federal Register. The U.S. Forest Service published the NOA of the Draft EIS/Draft MMP Amendment on December 8, 2009 and the EPA published the NOA of the Draft EIS/ Draft MMP Amendment on December 11, 2009, which initiated a 90-day public comment period. The comment period ended on March 12, 2010. The Federal agencies received 19 submittals containing comments from government and non-governmental organizations and private citizens. The comments in each submittal were identified, analyzed, and addressed in the Final EIS. The Draft EIS analyzed four transmission line route alternatives and disclosed impacts associated with these alternatives, including: Alternative A— the Proposed Action; Alternative B—a route that paralleled the existing 69 kV route through Bryce Canyon National Park; Alternative C—the Cedar Forks Southern Route; and the No Action Alternative. The Final EIS was an abbreviated EIS that summarized the impacts of combining portions of Alternatives A and C as the Agency Preferred Alternative, and responded to public comments. The BLM’s decision authorizes issuance of a right-of-way grant to Garkane Energy, Inc. for the Agency’s Preferred Alternative on BLM administered lands, as analyzed in the Final EIS.The U.S. Forest Service and PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 EPA published an NOA of the Final EIS/ Proposed MMP Amendment for public review and comment in the Federal Register on April 8, 2011. After publication of the Final EIS/Proposed MMP Amendment, there were no protests received on the MMP Amendment during the 30-day protest period beginning April 8, 2011, and ending on May 8, 2011, pursuant to 43 CFR 1610.5–2. The Utah Governor’s Office did not identify any inconsistencies between the Final EIS/ Proposed MMP Amendment and state or local plans, policies, and programs during the 60-day Governor’s Consistency Review, in accordance with planning regulations at 43 CFR 1610.3– 2(e). As a result of the Governor’s Consistency Review, no changes were made in preparing the Approved MMP Amendment. Any party adversely affected by the decision on the right-of-way application may appeal by October 14, 2011, pursuant to 43 CFR part 4 subpart E, and 43 CFR 2801.10. If you wish to file a petition for a stay of effectiveness of the right-of-way decision during the time your appeal is being reviewed by the Interior Board of Appeals, the petition for a stay must accompany your Notice of Appeal (43 CFR 4.21 or 2801.10). The appeal and petition for a stay, if requested, must be filed with the Utah State Director at BLM, Utah State Office, P.O. Box 45155, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84145–0155, by October 14, 2011.
