By this notice, the BLM is announcing the beginning of the scoping process to solicit public comments and identify issues related to the EIS/Plan Amendment (PA). DATES: This notice initiates the public scoping process for the EIS/EIR/PA. Comments on issues may be submitted in writing until November 23, 2012. The date(s) and location(s) of any scoping meetings will be announced at least 15 days in advance through local media, newspapers, and the BLM Web site at: http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/ cdd.html. In order to be included in the analysis, all comments must be received prior to the close of the 30-day scoping period or 15 days after the last public meeting, whichever is later. We will provide additional opportunities for public participation as appropriate. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments on issues and planning criteria related to the Soda Mountain Solar Project by any of the following methods: • Web site: http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/ en/fo/cdd.html. • Email: Sodamtnsolar@blm.gov. • Fax: 951–697–5299. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:22 Oct 22, 2012 Jkt 229001 For further information and/or to have your name added to our mailing list, contact Jeffery Childers; telephone 951–697– 5308; address BLM California Desert District Office, 22835 Calle San Juan de Los Lagos, Moreno Valley, California 92553–9046; email jchilders@blm.gov.

The applicant, Soda Mountain Solar, LLC, has requested a right-of-way (ROW) authorization to construct, operate, maintain and decommission a maximum 350 megawatt (MW) photovoltaic facility and necessary ancillary facilities, including a project substation, access road, realignment of an existing designated route (Rasor Road), operations and maintenance buildings, and lay down areas. The project is proposed on 4,397 acres with the solar field occupying approximately 2,691 acres. This Notice informs the public that the BLM intends to prepare a Draft CDCA Plan amendment and associated EIS/EIR with San Bernardino County for the Project and announces the beginning of the scoping process to seek public input on environmental issues and planning criteria. 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 EIS/EIR. At present, the BLM has identified the following preliminary issues: Air quality and greenhouse gas emissions; biological resources, including special status species, cultural resources, geology and soils; hazards and hazardous materials; hydrology and water quality; land use; noise; recreation; traffic; visual resources; cumulative effects; and areas with high potential for renewable energy development. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 You may submit comments on issues and planning criteria in writing to the BLM at any public scoping meeting, or you may submit them to the BLM using one of the methods listed in the ADDRESSES section above. Comments must be received by the close of the 30day scoping period or within 15 days after the last public meeting, whichever is later. Pursuant to the BLM’s CDCA Plan, sites associated with power generation or transmission not identified in the Plan will be considered through the plan amendment process to determine the suitability of the site for renewable energy development. Since the proposed Project site was not previously identified as suitable, authorization of the Project would require amendment of the CDCA Plan. By this notice, the BLM is complying with requirements in 43 CFR 1610.2(c) to notify the public of potential amendments to the CDCA Plan predicated on the findings in the EIS/ EIR. If a land use plan amendment is necessary, the BLM will integrate the land use planning process with the NEPA process for the Project. A preliminary list of the potential planning criteria that will be used to help guide and define the scope of the plan amendment includes: 1. The plan amendment will be completed in compliance with FLPMA, NEPA, and all other relevant Federal laws, executive orders, and BLM policies; 2. Existing valid plan decisions will not be changed and any new plan decisions will not conflict with existing plan decisions; and 3. The plan amendment(s) will recognize valid existing rights. Pursuant to 43 CFR 2091.3–1(e) and 43 CFR 2804.25(e), the BLM is segregating the following described public lands, located in the State of California, subject to valid existing rights, from operation of the public land laws and mining laws, but not the mineral leasing or the material sale laws.
