SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following described public lands have been examined and found suitable for direct sale under the authority of Sections 203 and 209 of FLPMA, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719). Sixth Principal Meridian, Colorado sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES T. 3 S., R. 73 W., sec. 12, lots 20, 21, 23, and 24. The areas described aggregate 6.72 acres. On April 6, 2012, the Cadastral Supplemental Plat for the subject lands were approved and accepted. The above-described lands are segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws. The BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the identified public lands, except applications for the amendment of previously filed right-ofway applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The segregated effect will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or May 6, 2016, unless extended by the BLM Colorado State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d) prior to the termination date. These public lands were identified as suitable for disposal in the 1986 Northeast Resource Management Plan and are not needed for any other Federal purpose. The purpose of the sale is to dispose of public lands that are difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands and are not suitable for management by another Federal department or agency. The lands are considered difficult and uneconomic to manage because they consist of irregularly shaped, isolated and very small remnants left over after the issuance of intermingled mining claim patents. A direct sale is appropriate in this case as the lands are proposed for sale to a local government to meet its needs for future water storage infrastructure. Black Hawk is in the process of completing the purchase of surrounding private parcels involved in the water project. Black Hawk has initiated an environmental assessment to support a Section 404 permit application to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for water VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:34 May 05, 2014 Jkt 232001 diversion, storage structures and infrastructure to meet forecasted needs. Analysis of the disposal of these lands for possible inclusion in the proposed Quartz Valley Reservoir will be included within this environmental assessment. Conveyance of the identified public lands will be subject to valid existing rights and encumbrances of record, including, but not limited to, rights-ofway for roads and public utilities. Conveyance of any mineral interests pursuant to Section 209 of the FLPMA will be analyzed during processing of the proposed sale. In addition to this Notice of Realty Action (NORA), notice of this sale will also be published once a week for 3 weeks in the Mountain Ear and the Weekly Register-Call. The public lands will not be offered for sale until after July 7, 2014. The patent, if issued, will be subject to all valid existing rights documented on the official public land records at the time of patent issuance. The availability of the appraisal report, mineral report and other documents pertinent to the proposed sale will be announced in a second NORA and made available to the public by the BLM at the Royal Gorge Field Office at above address prior to the sale. For a period until June 20, 2014 interested parties and the public may submit written comments to the BLM Royal Gorge Field Manager (see ADDRESSES section). Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Royal Gorge Field Office during regular business hours. In order to ensure consideration in the environmental analysis of the proposed sale, comments must be in writing and postmarked or delivered within 45 days of the initial date of publication of this Notice. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire Comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The Colorado State Director, who may sustain, vacate, or modify this realty action and issue a final determination, will review any comments. In the absence of any objections, this realty action will become the final determination of the Department of the Interior. PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Authority: 43 CFR 2711.1–2.

L. 91–190, as amended) and the regulations promulgated by the Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR 1505.2), the Department of the Interior, National Park Service (NPS), has prepared and approved a Record of Decision for the Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS) for the Merced River Comprehensive Management Plan. Approval of the Merced River Comprehensive Management Plan culminates an extensive conservation planning and environmental impact analysis effort which began over 15 years ago.

Under the selected alternative, peak visitation could reach levels experienced in recent years— approximately 20,100 people per day in East Yosemite Valley. West Yosemite Valley will retain its overall natural character, with limited facilities and visitor services provided. Improvements to river access in the Valley, coupled with meadow enhancements and extensive riverbank restoration (189 acres of meadow and riparian habitat will be restored), will result in substantially improved visitor experiences. Visitors to Wawona will continue to enjoy the historic hotel and facilities; recreational options in this area will include tennis and golf, hiking, picnicking, horseback riding, and boating on the South Fork of the Merced River. The El Portal Administrative Site will continue to serve as a hub for park operations, and remote parking to reduce summer traffic congestion will be provided. Selected key components of the approved plan are as follows: (1) Provide for 72 campsites at Upper and Lower River Campgrounds and 482 lodging units at Curry Village; (2) increase parking at El Portal Remote Parking Area to 300 spaces and reduce parking at Yosemite Village Day-use Parking Area to 750 spaces; (3) provide for raft and bicycle rentals at locations outside the river corridor; (4) retain Sugar Pine Bridge and remove Residence One (the Superintendent’s House) through relocation or demolition; (5) adverse effects to cultural resources will be ameliorated according to a Programmatic Agreement executed with the State Historic Preservation Officer; and (6) undertake a rigorous adaptive management program of ecological restoration and monitoring actions in order to improve hydrologic flows, water infiltration, and reduce erosion. Five other alternatives were evaluated, the full range of foreseeable environmental consequences was assessed, and appropriate mitigation measures were identified.
