SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., NPS announces the termination of the EIS for the Paseo del Morro National Recreational Trail Extension, San Juan National Historic Site, San Juan, Puerto Rico. A Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS was published in the Federal Register on November 15, 2012 (77 FR 68146, Column 3). The NPS then engaged in a scoping process which included public meetings and consultation with federal agencies, and the initial development of a range of management alternatives with preliminary environmental impact assessment. Due to the results of the preliminary analysis of the alternatives and removal of a proposed project element, the NPS has determined that there is no potential for significant impacts to park resources and values. In addition, no concerns or issues were expressed during the public scoping process that would indicate the potential for highly controversial impacts. For these reasons, the NPS determined the proposal would not constitute a major federal action requiring an EIS. The responsible official is the Regional Director, NPS Southeast Region, 100 Alabama Street SW., 1924 Building, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. Dated: February 2, 2016. Shawn T.
