We published a notice of proposed collection for this information collection on October 28, 2014 (79 FR 64219), and received no comments. We have thus submitted the described information collection to OMB for approval. In response to this notice, comments and suggestions should address one or more of the following points: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for NARA’s proper performance of its functions; (b) the accuracy of NARA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Jan 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of information technology; and (e) whether small businesses are affected by this collection. In this notice, NARA solicits comments concerning the following information collection: Title: Request Pertaining to Military Records. OMB number: 3095–0029. Agency form number: SF 180. Type of review: Regular. Affected public: Veterans, their authorized representatives, state and local governments, and businesses. Estimated number of respondents: 1,028,769.

In accordance with rules issued by the Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS, U.S. Coast Guard), NARA’s National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) administers veterans’ military service records after discharge, retirement, or death. When veterans and other authorized individuals request information from, or copies of, documents in military service records, they must provide certain information about the veteran and the nature of the request. Federal agencies, military departments, veterans, veterans’ organizations, and the general public use Standard Form (SF) 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records, to request information from military service records stored at NPRC. Veterans and next-of-kin of deceased veterans can also use eVetRecs (http:// www.archives.gov/research_room/ vetrecs/) to order copies. Dated: January 15, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for collection of information they conduct or sponsor. Collection of information is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60 day notice in the SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\23JAN1.SGM 23JAN1 3659 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 15 / Friday, January 23, 2015 / Notices Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, NCPC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, NCPC invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of NCPC’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of NCPC’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. Below is a summary of the collection activities the NCPC will submit for clearance by OMB as required under the PRA. NCPC is the federal government’s central planning agency for the National Capital Region. Pursuant to the National Capital Planning Act (40 U.S.C., §§ 8701 et seq.) NCPC prepares a comprehensive plan for the National Capital Region; reviews federal and some District of Columbia proposed developments, projects and plans; reviews District zoning amendments; prepares an annual Federal Capital Improvements Program and reviews the District Capital Improvements Program. To fulfill the mission established in the National Capital Planning Act, NCPC needs to conduct additional planning studies to inform the activities noted above. Over the next three years, NCPC anticipates it will complete an update to elements of the ‘‘Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital,’’ including a new urban design element; update the parks and open space element and conduct a study of parks in Washington, DC; advance an initiative for Pennsylvania Avenue; conduct regional climate adaptation and infrastructure studies; prepare one or more viewshed studies; study trail proposals; prepare commemoration studies and plans; and develop area-specific plans for federal precincts in the Monumental Core, including the SW. Ecodistrict and NW. Rectangle. Other new initiatives may be proposed during the next three years. While NCPC establishes a multi-year strategic plan and a yearly work program anticipating major initiatives, the agency’s work is often shaped by external factors, including new Administration directives and the planning and development decisions of other federal agencies and local governments in the region. To fulfill the agency mission and consistent with best planning practices, NCPC’s planning initiatives are predicated on receiving public input at all development stages. Public input is voluntary. The affected public may include individuals, agencies, and organizations within the National Capital Region, as well as national and even international audiences. Agency staff may receive requests from the Commission to solicit public input on specific topic areas identified as a planning process unfolds. NCPC’s plans affect federal and non-federal properties, regional residents and workers, federal and local government agencies, visitors, development interests, businesses, and civic and interest-based organizations. Based on prior experience and current practice, each initiative collects qualitative, voluntary public feedback to inform NCPC in their planning initiatives. While the specific information requested from the public cannot be determined at this time, the general nature of the collection and collection tools used are described below. NCPC will provide more refined individual estimates of burden in subsequent notices to OMB. To offer the public the broadest possible opportunity to comment, NCPC may ask the same questions in different formats: On line, in writing, and verbally at public meetings and focus groups. The purpose of collecting public input is to inform and shape NCPC’s planning work at the earliest opportunity. Early in a planning study, public feedback is used to shape the direction and scope of the study, including possible vision and goals, study alternatives, and anticipated issues. At later stages, NCPC has often completed technical studies, and identified and developed options and alternatives for policies, physical development plans, or programs. Public input helps the agency evaluate the accuracy and usefulness of studies, and conveys preferences and responses to alternatives. Towards the end of a planning study, NCPC has typically developed early drafts of plans and policies and is seeking more detailed public comments, often on a preferred plan idea or approach. Public input is often organized around major plan/ policy topics and key decisions. Public input helps the agency evaluate the full range of possible impacts and understand the preferences of the public prior to acting on a proposed policy or plan. Information collected will be used by agency staff as they develop policy and development plans. For some initiatives, steering committees comprised of representatives from federal agencies provide advisory guidance on agency policy and development plans. These committees review and consider public input prior to providing guidance. The Commission reviews informal public input, sometimes provided in summary form, as well as formally-submitted public comments as part of their deliberations and actions on draft and final agency plans. NCPC estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED THREE YEAR REPORTING BURDEN [Footnote] tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Number of events Focus Groups ..................................................................

[[Page 3659]]

Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information 
before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with 
this requirement, NCPC is publishing notice of the proposed collection 
of information set forth in this document.
    With respect to the following collection of information, NCPC 
invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection 
of information is necessary for the proper performance of NCPC's 
functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of NCPC's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques, when 
appropriate, and other forms of information technology.
    Below is a summary of the collection activities the NCPC will 
submit for clearance by OMB as required under the PRA.
    NCPC is the federal government's central planning agency for the 
National Capital Region. Pursuant to the National Capital Planning Act 
(40 U.S.C., Sec. Sec.  8701 et seq.) NCPC prepares a comprehensive plan 
for the National Capital Region; reviews federal and some District of 
Columbia proposed developments, projects and plans; reviews District 
zoning amendments; prepares an annual Federal Capital Improvements 
Program and reviews the District Capital Improvements Program. To 
fulfill the mission established in the National Capital Planning Act, 
NCPC needs to conduct additional planning studies to inform the 
activities noted above.
    Over the next three years, NCPC anticipates it will complete an 
update to elements of the ``Comprehensive Plan for the National 
Capital,'' including a new urban design element; update the parks and 
open space element and conduct a study of parks in Washington, DC; 
advance an initiative for Pennsylvania Avenue; conduct regional climate 
adaptation and infrastructure studies; prepare one or more viewshed 
studies; study trail proposals; prepare commemoration studies and 
plans; and develop area-specific plans for federal precincts in the 
Monumental Core, including the SW. Ecodistrict and NW. Rectangle.
    Other new initiatives may be proposed during the next three years. 
While NCPC establishes a multi-year strategic plan and a yearly work 
program anticipating major initiatives, the agency's work is often 
shaped by external factors, including new Administration directives and 
the planning and development decisions of other federal agencies and 
local governments in the region.
    To fulfill the agency mission and consistent with best planning 
practices, NCPC's planning initiatives are predicated on receiving 
public input at all development stages. Public input is voluntary. The 
affected public may include individuals, agencies, and organizations 
within the National Capital Region, as well as national and even 
international audiences. Agency staff may receive requests from the 
Commission to solicit public input on specific topic areas identified 
as a planning process unfolds. NCPC's plans affect federal and non-
federal properties, regional residents and workers, federal and local 
government agencies, visitors, development interests, businesses, and 
civic and interest-based organizations.
    Based on prior experience and current practice, each initiative 
collects qualitative, voluntary public feedback to inform NCPC in their 
planning initiatives. While the specific information requested from the 
public cannot be determined at this time, the general nature of the 
collection and collection tools used are described below. NCPC will 
provide more refined individual estimates of burden in subsequent 
notices to OMB.
    To offer the public the broadest possible opportunity to comment, 
NCPC may ask the same questions in different formats: On line, in 
writing, and verbally at public meetings and focus groups. The purpose 
of collecting public input is to inform and shape NCPC's planning work 
at the earliest opportunity. Early in a planning study, public feedback 
is used to shape the direction and scope of the study, including 
possible vision and goals, study alternatives, and anticipated issues. 
At later stages, NCPC has often completed technical studies, and 
identified and developed options and alternatives for policies, 
physical development plans, or programs. Public input helps the agency 
evaluate the accuracy and usefulness of studies, and conveys 
preferences and responses to alternatives. Towards the end of a 
planning study, NCPC has typically developed early drafts of plans and 
policies and is seeking more detailed public comments, often on a 
preferred plan idea or approach. Public input is often organized around 
major plan/policy topics and key decisions. Public input helps the 
agency evaluate the full range of possible impacts and understand the 
preferences of the public prior to acting on a proposed policy or plan.
    Information collected will be used by agency staff as they develop 
policy and development plans. For some initiatives, steering committees 
comprised of representatives from federal agencies provide advisory 
guidance on agency policy and development plans. These committees 
review and consider public input prior to providing guidance. The 
Commission reviews informal public input, sometimes provided in summary 
form, as well as formally-submitted public comments as part of their 
deliberations and actions on draft and final agency plans.
