Notice of availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement AGENCY: ACTION: PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37707 on Brooks River Visitor Access for Katmai National Park and Preserve. The National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on Brooks River Visitor Access for Katmai National Park and Preserve. The document evaluates the environmental impacts of four action alternatives that include bridge and boardwalk systems to replace the existing Brooks River floating bridge and sites to relocate the existing Naknek Lake barge landing area at the mouth of the Brooks River. A no-action alternative is also evaluated. If implemented, this EIS would amend the access provisions of the 1996 Brooks River Area Final Development Concept Plan and Environmental Impact Statement. This notice announces the public comment period, the locations of public meetings, and solicits comments on the DEIS. DATES: Comments on the DEIS must be received no later than August 21, 2012. ADDRESSES: Written comments on the DEIS should be submitted to Glen Yankus, National Park Service, 240 West 5th Avenue, Anchorage, Alaska 99501. Submit comments electronically through the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment system (PEPC) at http://parkplanning.nps.gov. The DEIS may be viewed and retrieved at this Web site as well. Hard copies of the DEIS are available by request from the aforementioned address. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for the locations of public meetings. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Glen Yankus, National Park Service, Telephone: (907) 644–3535. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Five alternatives for access at the Brooks River area of Katmai National Park are presented in the EIS. Alternative 1 (the no-action alternative) presents a continuation of current management direction and is included as a baseline for comparing the consequences of implementing each alternative. Alternatives 2–5 present different ways of providing access to and within the Brooks River area. Alternative 1 (No Action): This alternative represents a continuation of the existing situation. The no-action alternative would maintain seasonal use of the floating bridge, which is 8 feet wide and about 320 feet long. The bridge would be used by both pedestrians and light utility vehicles. NPS would continue to install and remove the bridge each spring and fall. SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\22JNN1.SGM 22JNN1

I. Abstract

    The NPS authorizes private businesses known as concessioners to 
provide necessary and appropriate visitor facilities and services in 
areas of the National Park System. Concession authorizations may be 
assigned, sold, transferred, or encumbered by the concessioner subject 
to prior written approval of the NPS. The NPS requires that certain 
information be submitted for review prior to the consummation of any 
sale, transfer, assignment, or encumbrance. The information requested 
is used to determine whether or not the proposed transaction will 
result in an adverse impact on the protection, conservation, or 
preservation of the resources of the unit of the National Park System; 
decreased services to the public; the lack of a reasonable opportunity 
for profit over the remaining term of the authorization; or rates in 
excess of approved rates to the public. In addition, pursuant to the 
regulations at 36 CFR part 51, the value of rights for intangible 
assets such as the concession contract, right of preference in renewal, 
user days, or low fees, belongs to the Government. If any portion of 
the purchase price is attributable either directly or indirectly to 
such assets, the transaction may not be approved. The amount and type 
of information to be submitted varies with the type and complexity of 
the proposed transaction. Without such information, the NPS would be 
unable to determine whether approval of the proposed transaction would 
be adequate.
