Population centers adjacent to the planning area include metropolitan Phoenix, and the communities of Ajo, Goodyear, Buckeye, Gila Bend, Mobile, and Maricopa. The planning area encompasses Federal- and Stateadministered lands as well as private lands. The BLM manages 486,400 surface acres of public lands in the planning area, as well as 461,000 acres of (sub-surface) mineral estate. The State of Arizona manages 3,900 surface acres in the planning area, with the remaining 6,100 surface acres being privately owned land. The BLM has prepared the Proposed RMP Amendment/Final EIS to address management of recreational target shooting in the SDNM and to address rulings by the U.S. District Court— District of Arizona. The Proposed RMP Amendment/Final EIS was required to analyze recreational target shooting in the SDNM due to a ruling by the U.S. District Court—District of Arizona that vacated portions of the 2012 Record of Decision, approved RMP, and Final EIS related to recreational target shooting throughout the SDNM, and remanded the decision to the BLM for reconsideration. The Court ordered the BLM to issue the decision for this amendment by September 30, 2017. The formal public scoping process for the RMP Amendment began on January 21, 2016, with the publication of a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register (81 FR 3463), and ended on March 21, 2016. The BLM held three public scoping meetings in February 2016. The BLM used public scoping comments to help identify planning issues that directed the formulation of alternatives and framed the scope of analysis in the Draft RMP Amendment/Draft EIS. The formal 90-day public comment period for the Draft RMP Amendment/Draft EIS began on December 16, 2016, with the publication of a NOA by the Environmental Protection Agency in the E:\FR\FM\20OCN1.SGM 20OCN1
