Therefore, the petition/application constitutes a withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1–3(e)). The use of a right-of-way, interagency, or cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses that may result in disturbance of the lands embraced within the Southwestern Oregon Watershed and Salmon Protection Areas. There are no suitable alternative sites as the described lands contain the resource values to be protected. No water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the proposed withdrawal. Records relating to the application may be examined by contacting the BLM at the above address and phone number. For a period until September 28, 2015, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal application may present their views in writing to the Oregon State Director, BLM, at the above address. Information regarding the withdrawal application will be available for public review at the BLM Oregon State Office during regular business hours, 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. 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. Individuals who submit written comments may request confidentiality by asking us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review; however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Notice is hereby given that there will be several public meetings held in PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 connection with the proposed withdrawal. A notice of the times and places of the public meetings will be announced at least 30 days in advance in the Federal Register and through local media, newspapers, and the BLM and the USFS Web sites. For a period until June 29, 2017, subject to valid existing rights, the public and National Forest System lands described in this notice will be segregated from settlement, sale, location, and entry under the public land laws, location and entry under the United States mining laws, and operation of the mineral and geothermal leasing laws, unless the application is denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date. Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land use authorizations of a temporary nature that will not significantly impact the values to be protected by the withdrawal may be allowed with the approval of the authorized officer of the BLM or the USFS during the temporary segregation period. The application will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300. Fred O’Ferrall, Chief, Branch of Land, Minerals, and Energy Resources.

    The areas described aggregate 95,805.53 acres of National Forest 
System lands in Josephine and Curry Counties.

    The following described non-Federal lands are within the exterior 
boundaries of the Southwestern Oregon Watershed and Salmon Protection 
Areas. If title to these non-Federal lands is subsequently acquired by 
the United States, the application requests that such lands become 
subject to the terms and conditions of the withdrawal.

    The Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management approved 
the BLM's petition/application. Therefore, the petition/application 
constitutes a withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 
CFR 2310.1-3(e)).
    The use of a right-of-way, interagency, or cooperative agreement 
would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses that may result 
in disturbance of the lands embraced within the Southwestern Oregon 
Watershed and Salmon Protection Areas.
    There are no suitable alternative sites as the described lands 
contain the resource values to be protected.
    No water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the 
proposed withdrawal.
    Records relating to the application may be examined by contacting 
the BLM at the above address and phone number.
    For a period until September 28, 2015, all persons who wish to 
submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the 
proposed withdrawal application may present their views in writing to 
the Oregon State Director, BLM, at the above address. Information 
regarding the withdrawal application will be available for public 
review at the BLM Oregon State Office during regular business hours, 
8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. 
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. Individuals 
who submit written comments may request confidentiality by asking us in 
your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from 
public review; however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do 
so.
    Notice is hereby given that there will be several public meetings 
held in connection with the proposed withdrawal. A notice of the times 
and places of the public meetings will be announced at least 30 days in 
advance in the Federal Register and through local media, newspapers, 
and the BLM and the USFS Web sites.
    For a period until June 29, 2017, subject to valid existing rights, 
the public and National Forest System lands described in this notice 
will be segregated from settlement, sale, location, and entry under the 
public land laws, location and entry under the United States mining 
laws, and operation of the mineral and geothermal leasing laws, unless 
the application is denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved 
prior to that date.
    Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land 
use authorizations of a temporary nature that will not significantly 
impact the values to be protected by the withdrawal may be allowed with 
the approval of the authorized officer of the BLM or the USFS during 
the temporary segregation period.
    The application will be processed in accordance with the 
regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300.

Fred O'Ferrall,
Chief, Branch of Land, Minerals, and Energy Resources.
