Notice of Lodging of Proposed Third Modification to Consent Decree Under the Clean Air Act, 15739-15740 [2013-05601]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 48 / Tuesday, March 12, 2013 / Notices significance of the (pre-European contact) American Indian moundbuilding story and its relationship to the heritage of the region. The landscape and visitor facilities would support a contemplative atmosphere with opportunities for the public to spend time reflecting on the lives and legacy of the moundbuilders and the sacred nature of the site today. The natural setting created by preserving or restoring landscapes would provide a connection between the moundbuilding cultures and the environment that shaped their lives and beliefs. New construction of facilities and trails at EFMO would be minimal under the preferred alternative. Using the direction provided in this plan, specific locations of trails in the Heritage Addition would be identified in a subsequent trail development plan. This plan envisions a small visitor contact station at the Sny Magill unit within an expanded boundary area. Once this land is acquired, subsequent site development planning would determine location and design of the station as well as of redesigned trails for Sny Magill. Dated: July 18, 2012. Michael T. Reynolds, Regional Director, Midwest Region. This document was received by the Office of the Federal Register on March 7, 2013.
