This document provides notice that the BLM Tucson Field Office, Tucson, Arizona, intends to prepare a TMP concurrent with the preparation of an RMP and associated EIS for the SPRNCA. It announces the beginning of the TMP scoping process, and seeks public input on travel and transportation issues and route designation within the SPRNCA. The SPRNCA, which encompasses 56,347 acres of public land located within Cochise County, Arizona, was designated by Congress on November 18, 1988. The Arizona-Idaho Conservation Act of 1988 (Pub.

The information about historic and cultural resources within the area potentially affected by the proposed TMP 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-togovernment 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Intent for the SPRNCA RMP and 
EIS was published on April 30, 2013 (78 FR 25299), with a 90-day 
scoping period that included scoping meetings during the summer. Due to 
public interest, the RMP scoping period was extended until September 
27, 2013, for a total of 150 days. This document provides notice that 
the BLM Tucson Field Office, Tucson, Arizona, intends to prepare a TMP 
concurrent with the preparation of an RMP and associated EIS for the 
SPRNCA. It announces the beginning of the TMP scoping process, and 
seeks public input on travel and transportation issues and route 
designation within the SPRNCA. The SPRNCA, which encompasses 56,347 
acres of public land located within Cochise County, Arizona, was 
designated by Congress on November 18, 1988. The Arizona-Idaho 
Conservation Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100-696) established that the land 
must be managed to conserve, protect and enhance the riparian area and 
the aquatic, wildlife, archaeological, paleontological, scientific, 
cultural, educational, and recreational resources of the area. It also 
requires the designation of roads for motorized vehicle use be included 
in a comprehensive long-range plan for the area. Developing the TMP in 
conjunction with the RMP and associated EIS will satisfy this 
requirement. In addition to considering the designation of roads for 
motorized use, the TMP will identify and consider primitive roads and 
trails available for non-motorized use. Decisions in the TMP will be 
limited to BLM-administered land within the planning area boundary. The 
purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues 
that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis and 
alternatives to be considered in development of the TMP. Preliminary 
issues for the TMP have been identified by BLM personnel; Federal, 
State, and local agencies; and other stakeholders. They represent the 
BLM's knowledge to date of the existing issues and concerns with 
current management. Some of these issues and concerns include:
     Impacts to other public land users and adjacent private 
landowners;
     Impacts to wildlife habitat;
     Impacts to water quality, cultural sites, vegetation, 
including riparian and wetland areas, and soils; and
     Identification of recreational opportunities.
     Possible use of hierarchical mitigation strategies that 
include avoidance, minimization, and compensation, on a local or 
regional scale, if appropriate.
    The BLM will use 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 TMP 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 
that may be interested in or affected by the proposed TMP the BLM is 
evaluating in conjunction with the SPRNCA RMP and associated EIS are 
invited to participate in the scoping process, and if eligible, may 
request or be requested by the BLM to participate in the development of 
the environmental analysis as a cooperating agency.
    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 publicly available at any time. While you can ask
