Download as PDF 60116 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 188 / Wednesday, September 28, 2011 / Notices The proposed action evaluated in the Environmental Assessment (EA) includes construction of a multi-use trail facility following the Metro red line from Fort Totten to Takoma and the Metro green line from Fort Totten to the District border. This EA analyzed the potential impacts resulting from constructing and operating the MBT on sections of land owned by the NPS within the area north of Fort Totten (Reservation 451 West), the area east of Fort Totten (Reservation 451 East), the Community Gardens (Reservation 497), and Tacoma Park (Reservation 531). Following the public comment period, DDOT identified Alternatives A1, B1, C1 and/or C2 as the Preferred Alternatives. The FHWA has determined that the Preferred Alternative and options will not have a significant impact on the natural, human or built environment as defined by CEQ. This Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is based on the findings of the proposed project’s Final EA, and comments submitted during preparation of the EA. The Final EA has been evaluated by the FHWA, using CEQ regulations and FHWA and NPS guidelines, and determined to adequately discuss the need, environmental issues, and impacts of the proposed project and appropriate mitigation measures. It provides sufficient evidence and analysis for determining that an environmental impact statement is not required.

Title: MARAD Maritime Operator Survey Concerning Mariner Availability. OMB Control Number: 2133–0537. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Vessel operating companies representing different sectors of the U.S. maritime industry. Form(s): MA–1048. Abstract: Part of the stated statutory policy of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936, is to foster the development and maintenance of an adequate U.S.-flag merchant marine manned with trained and efficient citizen personnel. In order to successfully meet this mandate, MARAD must determine whether a current or projected shortage of mariners exists and if there is an operational or business impact on the merchant marine. MARAD believes that a brief preliminary survey is necessary at this time because it has received an abundance of anecdotal information indicating that there is a serious existing and projected mariner shortage in different market sectors. If the preliminary survey indicates that there is a projected shortage that appears to be more than short-term, MARAD will follow-up with a more detailed survey to analyze the shortage and ascertain the best means to address it. Annual Estimated Burden Hours: 33.

A comment to OMB is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication. By Order of the Maritime Administrator. Dated: September 22, 2011. Julie P.
