In E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1 jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 56 / Friday, March 24, 2017 / Notices March 2016, the Bureau completed the Revised Final EIS for the Proposed United States Penitentiary and Federal Prison Camp, Letcher County, Kentucky, which evaluated the potential environmental impacts from the acquisition of property and construction and operation of a new United States Penitentiary, Federal Prison Camp, ancillary facilities, and access roads in Letcher County. The RFEIS analyzed two potential locations: An approximately 753-acre site in eastern Letcher County (Alternative 1—Payne Gap), and an approximately 700-acre site in western Letcher County (Alternative 2—Roxana). The RFEIS identified Alternative 2—Roxana as the preferred alternative because it best meets the project needs and, on balance, would have fewer impacts to the natural and built environment. The Bureau was originally considering acquiring approximately 700 acres at the Roxana site for this project. The Bureau removed two parcels of land at the Roxana site from acquisition consideration, resulting in a proposed site of approximately 570 acres. This reduction in site size necessitated modifying the facilities layout evaluated for Alternative 2— Roxana in the RFEIS. The environmental impacts of the Modified Alternative 2—Roxana have been analyzed in the Draft Supplemental RFEIS. The alternatives evaluated in the Draft Supplemental RFEIS include the No Action Alternative and Modified Alternative 2—Roxana. Modified Alternative 2—Roxana is the Preferred Alternative and includes proposed facilities that would house approximately 1,216 total inmates: Approximately 960 within the USP and approximately 256 within the FPC. Inmates housed in the USP would be high-security male inmates and those housed in the FPC would be minimumsecurity male inmates. In addition to the USP and FPC, several ancillary facilities necessary for the operation of the USP and FPC would be constructed. The ancillary facilities would include a central utility plant, outdoor firing range, outside warehouse, staff training building, garage/landscape building, access roads, and parking lots. A nonlethal/lethal fence and site lighting would also be installed. The non-lethal/ lethal fence would be placed around the perimeter of the USP between two parallel, chain link and razor wire fences. Operation of the USP and FPC would require approximately 300 fulltime staff. The Draft Supplemental RFEIS analyzes potential direct, indirect and cumulative environmental impacts that VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 Mar 23, 2017 Jkt 241001 may result from Modified Alternative 2—Roxana, including land use and zoning; topography, geology, and soils; air quality; noise; infrastructure and utilities; cultural resources; water resources; and biological resources. The Bureau determined there is no significant new information relevant to environmental concerns and no appreciable changes to potential impacts as a result of the modifications to the Roxana site size and facilities layout under Modified Alternative 2— Roxana to the following resource areas: Socioeconomics and environmental justice, community facilities and services, transportation and traffic, and hazardous materials and waste. Relevant and reasonable measures that could avoid or mitigate environmental impacts have been analyzed. The Bureau is consulting with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act and with the Kentucky Heritage Council under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. When complete, results of these ongoing consultations will be included in the Final Supplemental RFEIS. A notice of availability of the Draft Supplemental RFEIS and a notice of public meeting is being published in the area newspapers to identify further details about the public meeting and the specific opportunities and methods for the public to provide comments on the Draft Supplemental RFEIS. The mailing list for the Draft Supplemental RFEIS was based on the mailing list in the 2016 RFEIS. Those on this list will receive a copy of the Draft Supplemental RFEIS. This list includes local, state, and federal agencies with jurisdiction, elected officials and community leaders, businesses and organizations, and other interested parties and individuals. Anyone wishing to be added to the mailing list to receive a copy of the Draft Supplemental RFEIS may request to be added by contacting the Bureau’s Site Selection Specialist at the address below. Following completion of the 45day public comment period on the Draft Supplemental RFEIS, the Bureau will issue a Final Supplemental RFEIS that will include comments received during the public comment period on the Draft Supplemental RFEIS. The Final Supplemental RFEIS will also include the Bureau’s response to substantive comments received on the Draft Supplemental RFEIS. Following publication of the Final Supplemental RFEIS, a 30-day review period will be provided. No action will be taken to implement any of the proposed alternatives until completion of the 30- PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15071 day review period on the Final Supplemental RFEIS and issuance of a Record of Decision on behalf of the Bureau by its Director or Acting Director.

March 2016, the Bureau completed the Revised Final EIS for the Proposed 
United States Penitentiary and Federal Prison Camp, Letcher County, 
Kentucky, which evaluated the potential environmental impacts from the 
acquisition of property and construction and operation of a new United 
States Penitentiary, Federal Prison Camp, ancillary facilities, and 
access roads in Letcher County. The RFEIS analyzed two potential 
locations: An approximately 753-acre site in eastern Letcher County 
(Alternative 1--Payne Gap), and an approximately 700-acre site in 
western Letcher County (Alternative 2--Roxana). The RFEIS identified 
Alternative 2--Roxana as the preferred alternative because it best 
meets the project needs and, on balance, would have fewer impacts to 
the natural and built environment.
    The Bureau was originally considering acquiring approximately 700 
acres at the Roxana site for this project. The Bureau removed two 
parcels of land at the Roxana site from acquisition consideration, 
resulting in a proposed site of approximately 570 acres. This reduction 
in site size necessitated modifying the facilities layout evaluated for 
Alternative 2--Roxana in the RFEIS. The environmental impacts of the 
Modified Alternative 2--Roxana have been analyzed in the Draft 
Supplemental RFEIS. The alternatives evaluated in the Draft 
Supplemental RFEIS include the No Action Alternative and Modified 
Alternative 2--Roxana.
    Modified Alternative 2--Roxana is the Preferred Alternative and 
includes proposed facilities that would house approximately 1,216 total 
inmates: Approximately 960 within the USP and approximately 256 within 
the FPC. Inmates housed in the USP would be high-security male inmates 
and those housed in the FPC would be minimum-security male inmates. In

placed around the perimeter of the USP between two parallel, chain link 
and razor wire fences. Operation of the USP and FPC would require 
approximately 300 full-time staff.
    The Draft Supplemental RFEIS analyzes potential direct, indirect 
and cumulative environmental impacts that may result from Modified 
Alternative 2--Roxana, including land use and zoning; topography, 
geology, and soils; air quality; noise; infrastructure and utilities; 
cultural resources; water resources; and biological resources. The 
Bureau determined there is no significant new information relevant to 
environmental concerns and no appreciable changes to potential impacts 
as a result of the modifications to the Roxana site size and facilities 
layout under Modified Alternative 2--Roxana to the following resource 
areas: Socioeconomics and environmental justice, community facilities
