Notice of Availability of the Proposed San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area Resource Management Plan and Final Environmental Impact Statement, Arizona, 17888-17889 [2019-08287]

Download as PDF 17888 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 81 / Friday, April 26, 2019 / Notices Unlike land use planning decisions, implementation decisions included in this Proposed Land Use Plan Amendment and Final Supplemental EIS are not subject to protest under the BLM planning regulations, but are subject to an administrative review process through appeals to the Office of Hearings and Appeals, Interior Board of Land Appeals pursuant to 43 CFR part 4 subpart E. Implementation decisions generally constitute the BLM’s final approval allowing on-the-ground actions to proceed. Where implementation decisions are made as part of the land use planning process, they are still subject to the appeals process or other administrative review as prescribed by specific resource program regulations once the BLM resolves the protests to land use planning decisions and issues a Record of Decision. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your protest, please be aware that your entire protest—including your personal identifying information—may be made publically available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Conservation Area was established by Public Law 100–696 on November 18, 1988. The planning area is located in Cochise County in southeastern PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Arizona, and encompasses approximately 55,990 acres of public land administered by the BLM Tucson Field Office. The Proposed RMP/Final EIS was prepared to address long-term management of the Conservation Area, accounting for the requirements of the enabling legislation. Issues identified as part of the planning process and addressed in the Proposed RMP/Final EIS include management of riparian, water, vegetation, soil resources, fire, threatened and endangered species, wildlife, cultural resources, paleontological resources, educational, scientific, livestock grazing, access, recreation, socio-economics, and lands and realty. It also considers lands with wilderness characteristics, wild and scenic rivers, and Areas of Critical Environmental Concern. The Proposed RMP/Final EIS evaluates a range of alternatives including the No Action and the proposed plan. A detailed description of these alternatives can be found in Chapter 2 of the Final EIS. The BLM’s proposed plan is Alternative C, except that it includes the livestock grazing allocation from Alternative A, which allows grazing on 7,030 acres. This grazing allocation represents current management on the Conservation Area. The BLM’s proposed plan represents a balance between resource protection and public access, authorizes livestock grazing on existing allotments, and provides for a diverse mix of recreation opportunities. The proposed plan focuses on active resource management and allows for the broadest array of management tools for ecosystem restoration to meet goals and objectives. Comments on the Draft RMP/Draft EIS received from cooperators, tribes, other agencies, the public, and internal BLM review were considered and incorporated as appropriate into the proposed plan. In response to public comments, additional information related to increased livestock grazing was analyzed in the Final EIS and showed additional impacts on wildlife habitat and cultural and water resources would occur in areas not currently grazed. As a result, the BLM chose the existing grazing allocation as part of the proposed plan. Instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM regarding the Proposed RMP and Final EIS may be found online at https://www.blm.gov/ programs/planning-and-nepa/publicparticipation/filing-a-plan-protest and at 43 CFR 1610.5–2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Conservation Area was established by 
Public Law 100-696 on November 18, 1988. The planning area is located 
in Cochise County in southeastern Arizona, and encompasses 
approximately 55,990 acres of public land administered by the BLM 
Tucson Field Office. The Proposed RMP/Final EIS was prepared to address 
long-term management of the Conservation Area, accounting for the 
requirements of the enabling legislation.
    Issues identified as part of the planning process and addressed in 
the Proposed RMP/Final EIS include management of riparian, water, 
vegetation, soil resources, fire, threatened and endangered species, 
wildlife, cultural resources, paleontological resources, educational, 
scientific, livestock grazing, access, recreation, socio-economics, and 
lands and realty. It also considers lands with wilderness 
characteristics, wild and scenic rivers, and Areas of Critical 
Environmental Concern.
    The Proposed RMP/Final EIS evaluates a range of alternatives 
including the No Action and the proposed plan. A detailed description 
of these alternatives can be found in Chapter 2 of the Final EIS. The 
BLM's proposed plan is Alternative C, except that it includes the 
livestock grazing allocation from Alternative A, which allows grazing 
on 7,030 acres. This grazing allocation represents current management 
on the Conservation Area. The BLM's proposed plan represents a balance 
between resource protection and public access, authorizes livestock 
grazing on existing allotments, and provides for a diverse mix of 
recreation opportunities. The proposed plan focuses on active resource 
management and allows for the broadest array of management tools for 
ecosystem restoration to meet goals and objectives.
    Comments on the Draft RMP/Draft EIS received from cooperators, 
tribes, other agencies, the public, and internal BLM review were 
considered and incorporated as appropriate into the proposed plan. In 
response to public comments, additional information related to 
increased livestock grazing was analyzed in the Final EIS and showed 
additional impacts on wildlife habitat and cultural and water resources 
would occur in areas not currently grazed. As a result, the BLM chose 
the existing grazing allocation as part of the proposed plan.
    Instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM 
regarding the Proposed RMP and Final EIS may be found online at https://www.blm.gov/programs/planning-and-nepa/public-participation/filing-a-plan-protest and at 43 CFR 1610.5-2. All protests must be in writing 
and mailed to the appropriate address, as set forth previously in the 
ADDRESSES section or submitted

ePlanning project website protest section will be invalid unless a
