Download as PDF 2732 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 8 / Wednesday, January 13, 2021 / Notices the entity in question, the entity’s exact contours would need to be determined. Ideally, this entity would manage the Savannah in such a way as to be financially self-sufficient. The second type of public-private partnership would involve a contractual partnership with an outside group. MARAD might attempt to enter into agreements with outside groups, where the recipient group would operate and maintain the vessel and MARAD would provide assistance. Finally, besides maintaining the Savannah intact, MARAD might transfer the vessel for use in a man-made reefing project or dismantle it. First, MARAD has the authority to transfer the Savannah to a requesting state or a foreign country for that state or foreign country to sink and use it as an artificial reef. Should MARAD grant the state or foreign country’s application, the Savannah would be sunk and its remnants would be used for the conservation of marine life. The other permanent disposal method that MARAD could consider is to dismantle the ship. MARAD would enter into a contract with an approved ship recycler to dismantle the ship If the contract resulted in a sale of the vessel, any proceeds would revert to statutory programs supporting the National Defense Reserve Fleet, maritime education, and maritime historic preservation and educational programs. The options of artificial-reef use or dismantlement are the least favored because the National Historic Preservation Act strongly favors the preservation of National Historic Landmarks like the Savannah whenever possible. This notice seeks comments to inform MARAD’s choice over which of these uses or dispositions to pursue as well as provide an opportunity for the suggestion of any other options that have not been mentioned. As part of our review, MARAD is issuing this notice to engage the public and the broad spectrum of stakeholders that may be affected by a given disposition of the Savannah. Information received will be used to evaluate the future of the Savannah and help to determine which option to pursue. Scope of Comments MARAD is interested in learning the public’s opinion regarding the future of the Savannah and which option presented, if any, is preferred. MARAD is also interested in hearing any unmentioned option. Commenters who seek to suggest new alternatives should note that at the highest level, MARAD’s fundamental choice is to either dismantle the Savannah or leave it VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jan 12, 2021 Jkt 253001 intact; however, leaving the ship intact would, by statute, require the vessel to be put to some other use. Accordingly, commentators may want to focus on the following: (1) Additional uses for the Savannah that MARAD has not mentioned if the ship were to be maintained; (2) potential owners or operators of the Savannah to carry out these additional uses; and (3) any additional uses for the remnants of the ship if the ship were to be dismantle. information you claim to be confidential business information, to the Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration, Office of Legislation and Regulations, MAR–225, W24–220, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590.

Content of Comments We are interested in information on the public’s view of the presented disposal options for the Savannah and any other feasible alternatives.
