ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Tongass National Forest is working to complete an amendment to the Tongass Land and Resource Management Plan (forest plan) by August 2016. The scope of the plan amendment is narrowly focused to accomplish a transition to young growth management as provided in the Secretary’s Memorandum (1044–009), and to make renewable energy development more permissive on the Tongass. Changes to the forest plan are being developed under the new National Forest System land management planning rule (36 CFR part 219) (2012 planning rule), and embody the provisions of the National Forest Management Act. The Tongass is the tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Jan 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 first national forest to amend a plan completed under the 1982 planning rule using the 2012 planning rule. Based on public scoping comments received on the Notice of Intent (NOI) that was published in the Federal Register (FR) on May 27, 2014 (79 FR 30074), as well as comments received on the five-year review of the forest plan, four issues were identified that focus on: (1) Young-growth transition; (2) renewable energy; (3) roadless areas; and (4) wildlife habitat and the old growth conservation strategy. Three public open houses have been planned in Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan, Alaska to share information with the public about the progress being made on the Proposed Forest Plan Amendment and Draft EIS, and to provide opportunity for the public to comment on the Draft Plan Monitoring Program. DATES: The public open house dates and times are: 1. January 26, 2015, 5:00 p.m. to 8 p.m., Juneau, AK. 2. January 28, 2015, 5:00 p.m. to 8 p.m., Sitka, AK. 3. February 2, 2015, 5:00 p.m. to 8 p.m., Ketchikan, AK. Comments concerning the Tongass National Forest Draft Plan Monitoring Program will be accepted for 30 days following publication of this Notice. ADDRESSES: The public open house locations are: 1. Juneau—USDA Forest Service (Juneau Ranger District/Admiralty National Monument Conference Room), 8510 Mendenhall Loop Road, Juneau, AK 99801. 2. Sitka—Harrigan Centennial Hall (Rousseau Room), 330 Harbor Drive, Sitka, AK 99835. 3. Ketchikan—Southeast Alaska Discovery Center, 50 Main Street, Ketchikan, AK 99901.

In addition to this Notice, display ads will be placed in the Juneau Empire, Sitka Sentinel and Ketchikan Daily News (newspaper of record).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 2012 planning rule requires that an existing plan’s monitoring program must be made to conform to the monitoring requirements of the rule within 4 years of the rule’s May 9, 2012 effective date (May 9, 2016), or as soon as practicable. The Tongass National Forest has a robust plan monitoring program that already addresses many of the eight requirements listed in the 2012 Planning Rule. The Draft Plan Monitoring Program will transition the monitoring plan out of the forest plan, thus providing the opportunity to more easily adapt to changing conditions on the forest.

Burden Hours: 389. Needs and Uses: This request is for a new information collection. Superstorm Sandy caused significant damage to the New York and New Jersey coast. There are numerous ongoing and planned projects to repair the damage caused by the storm. The Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2012 provided NOAA with funding to assess the ecosystem service values associated with restoration options being considered in the wake of Sandy. Two geographic areas that were particularly impacted by the Storm were the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey and Jamaica Bay in New York. Under this collection effort, the NOAA Office for Coastal Management will implement a contingent valuation survey to assess the value of the ecosystem services that will be generated by restoration projects being implemented in both areas. Data will be collected from individuals who reside in the New York and New Jersey areas. NOAA will implement two separate surveys: One for each geographic area. There are a number of restoration projects that are ongoing in the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and in Jamaica Bay. After reviewing the scope and focus of many of those restoration projects, NOAA has decided to focus on two specific projects. For the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, NOAA will focus on the work being done under a $15 million project being conducted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The Forsythe project will focus on restoring and enhancing the salt marsh at the Refuge to act as a natural protection from storms and to act as a habitat for wildlife. In assessing ecosystem service benefits for the Forsythe restoration work, NOAA will focus on the value of the salt marsh for storm protection, habitat, and recreation, as well as other possible ecosystem services. The Jamaica Bay area has a number of planned and ongoing projects. NOAA has decided to focus on work being conducted at Spring Creek Park on the northern point of Jamaica Bay. The restoration work at the park will involve improving habitat and storm and flood protection. NOAA will focus on the associated ecosystem services from habitat improvements and the added storm and flood protection. NOAA is currently contacting and working with partners and stakeholders at each site to ensure the relevancy of this work. Affected Public: Individuals or households.
