The purpose of the scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the planning process. Preliminary issues have been identified by BLM personnel; Federal, State, and local agencies; and other stakeholders. The issues include potential impacts related to conflicting land uses, including oil and gas development; wind turbine generator placement; and potential socioeconomic issues. The RMP amendment will consider closure of 12,425.34 acres of BLM surface and sub-surface mineral estate to oil and gas leasing due to concerns raised by communities regarding the protection of drinking water sources adjacent to the cities of Rawlins, Saratoga, and Laramie. Opportunities for on-site, regional, and compensatory mitigation strategies would be formulated through discussions with cooperators and other stakeholders. Preliminary planning criteria include: • Planning decisions will cover BLMadministered public lands; • Planning decisions will include split-estate lands where the BLM has jurisdiction over the mineral estate; • The planning process would be collaborative and multi-jurisdictional in nature; • The environmental analysis will consider a reasonable range of alternatives; • The BLM will consider current scientific information, research, new technologies, and the results of resource assessments, monitoring, and coordination; • The BLM will consider current potential future uses of the public lands, through the development of reasonably VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:14 Jul 18, 2014 Jkt 232001 foreseeable future development and activity scenarios; and • Decisions in the RMP amendment will comply as appropriate to all applicable laws, regulations, policy, and guidance. 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. To be most helpful, you should submit comments by the close of the 30-day scoping period or within 15 days after the last public meeting, whichever is later. The BLM will use the NEPA public participation requirements to assist the agency in satisfying the public involvement requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) (16 U.S.C. 470(f)) pursuant to 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). The information about historic and cultural resources within the area potentially affected by the proposed action will assist the BLM in identifying and evaluating impacts to such resources in the context of both NEPA and Section 106 of the NHPA. The BLM will consult with Indian tribes on a government-to-government basis in accordance with Executive Order 13175 and other policies. Tribal concerns, including impacts on Indian trust assets and potential impacts to cultural resources, will be given due consideration. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with tribes and other stakeholders that may be interested in or affected by the proposed action that the BLM is evaluating, are invited to participate in the development of the environmental analysis as a cooperating agency. The minutes and list of attendees for each scoping meeting will be available to the public and open for 30 days after the meeting to any participant who wishes to clarify the views he or she expressed. The BLM will evaluate identified issues to be addressed in the plan, and will place them into one of three categories: 1. Issues to be resolved in the plan amendment; 2. Issues to be resolved through policy or administrative action; or 3. Issues beyond the scope of this plan amendment. The BLM will provide an explanation in the Draft RMP amendment as to why an issue was placed in category two or three. The public is also encouraged to help identify any management questions and concerns that should be addressed in the plan. The BLM will work collaboratively with interested parties to identify the management decisions that PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42351 are best suited to local, regional, and national needs and concerns. The BLM will use an interdisciplinary approach (including, but not limited to, analysis of potential impacts related to hydrology, soils, archaeology, wildlife, minerals, and socioeconomics) to develop the RMP amendment in order to consider the variety of resource issues and concerns identified. 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.
