Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 76 / Friday, April 19, 2013 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Pursuant to the NHPA (16 U.S.C. 470, 470f), the Service has initiated Section 106 consultation with the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office for the project. Architectural surveys have been completed for the full 100-turbine project. Only 52 turbines have been sited to date. Thus, archaeological surveys have only been conducted for the 52-turbine Project footprint. Therefore, additional effort will be required to identify archaeological sites and historic properties that may be adversely affected within the footprint of the remaining 48 turbines and associated infrastructure. Following siting of the additional 48 turbines, additional archaeological surveys will be conducted, with plans and reports submitted to the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office for review. The draft PA between the Service, Buckeye Wind, and Ohio State Historic Preservation Office describes the process for conducting the remaining surveys, evaluating the results of the surveys, and determining if resources can be avoided or if additional surveys or mitigation are necessary before the Section 106 process is completed. The final PA will be signed prior to issuance of the EIS Record of Decision. The Section 106 process will be completed prior to Project construction beginning. Public comments are solicited on the content of the draft PA. Public Involvement Public scoping for the Draft EIS was first initiated in the form of a Notice of Intent to conduct a 30-day scoping period for a NEPA decision on the proposed HCP and permit and request for comments, published in the Federal Register on January 29, 2010 (75 FR 4840). The Service formally initiated an environmental review of the project through publication of a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement in the Federal Register on May 26, 2010 (75 FR 29575). Utilizing the public scoping comments, the Service prepared a draft EIS to analyze the effects of the alternatives on the human environment. The draft EIS was released for a 90-day public comment on June 29, 2012 (77 FR 38819). A public meeting was held on July 12, 2012, at the Champaign County Community Center Auditorium, 1512 S. U.S. Highway 68, Urbana, OH to solicit additional input from the public on the HCP and Draft EIS. The official comment period ended on September 27, 2012.
