Denali National Park and Preserve Aircraft Overflights Advisory Council; Meeting, 12878 [2012-5099]

Download as PDF 12878 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 42 / Friday, March 2, 2012 / Notices and substantive public comments. No changes were made to the alternatives or to the impact analysis presented in the Draft GMP/EIS. Therefore, Action Alternative 5 remained as the NPS Preferred Alternative and the environmentally preferred alternative. Why NPS Selected Alternative 5 We selected Alternative 5 because it best fulfills the purposes of the park and conveys the greatest number of beneficial results in comparison with the other alternatives. The selected alternative: • Results in major beneficial impacts to natural and scenic resources, primarily as a result of managing large areas of the park as unfragmented backcountry forest. • Addresses the long-term preservation needs of the park’s cultural resources and, through the park’s leasing program, provides an income stream for their long-term maintenance. • Emphasizes primitive recreational experiences throughout the park and along the new through-park connector by linking portions of scenic roads and trails along the length of the park. In the long term, we will develop additional segments of trail limited to hiking/ biking only to create a through park trail. New facilities will expand visitor opportunities in the vicinity of river gateway communities and in focal areas. • Addresses the majority of visitor use issues and provides the greatest direct and indirect economic impact in terms of jobs, earnings, NPS spending, and visitor spending. More aggressive partnering with gateway communities will better enhance relevance of the park to local visitors and better enable us to respond to concerns of local residents about how the park is managed. The Abbreviated Final GMP/EIS and the Draft GMP/EIS constitute the principal documentation upon which this Record of Decision is based. Dated: February 10, 2012. Dennis R.
