SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BIA published a Notice of Availability for the Draft EIS in the Federal Register on November 21, 2018 (83 FR 58783), and on December 12, 2018, held a public hearing for the proposed project at Fruitport Middle School, 3113 East Pontaluna Road, Fruitport, Michigan 49415. On March 18, 2019, the BIA reopened the public comment period until April 17, 2019 (84 FR 9807). Background: The Proposed Project consists of the following components: (1) The Department of the Interior’s (Department) transfer of approximately 60 acres from fee to trust status pursuant to Section 5 of the Indian Reorganization Act (25 U.S.C. 5108); (2) issuance of a determination by the Secretary of the Interior pursuant to Section 20 of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act determining whether a gaming facility on the project site would be in the best interest of the Tribe and its members and not detrimental to the surrounding community (25 U.S.C. 2719(b)(1)(A)); and (3) development of the trust parcel and adjacent land VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Oct 22, 2020 Jkt 253001 owned by the Tribe, totaling approximately 86.5 acres, with a variety of uses including a casino, hotel, conference center, parking, and other supporting facilities. The following alternatives are considered in the FEIS: (1) Proposed Project; (2) Reduced Intensity Alternative; (3) Non-Gaming Alternative; (4) Custer Site Alternative; and (5) No Action/No Development. The BIA has selected Alternative 1, the Proposed Project, as the Preferred Alternative as discussed in the FEIS. Environmental issues addressed in the FEIS include geology and soils, water resources, air quality, biological resources, cultural and paleontological resources, socioeconomic conditions (including environmental justice), transportation and circulation, land use, public services, noise, hazardous materials, aesthetics, cumulative effects, and indirect and growth-inducing effects. The information and analysis contained in the FEIS, as well as its evaluation and assessment of the Preferred Alternative, will assist the Department in its review of the issues presented in the Tribe’s application. Selection of the Preferred Alternative does not indicate the Department’s final decision because the Department must complete its review process. The Department’s review process consists of (1) issuing the notice of availability of the FEIS; (2) issuing a Record of Decision no sooner than 30 days following publication of the Notice of Availability of the FEIS by the EPA in the Federal Register; (3) issuing a Secretarial Determination pursuant to Section 20 of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act that determines whether the Tribe’s gaming facility would be in the best interest of the Tribe and its members and is not detrimental to the surrounding community, 25 U.S.C. 2719(b)(1)(A); (4) requesting the Governor of Michigan’s concurrence with the Secretarial Determination; and (5) issuing a final decision on the transfer of the proposed site from fee to trust status pursuant to Section 5 of the Indian Reorganization Act, 25 U.S.C. 5108.
