Cultural Resources and Maritime Heritage: To identify, protect, and raise awareness of the maritime cultural, historical, and archeological resources within the sanctuary, this action plan proposes to improve the sanctuary’s collaborative partnership with members of the Chumash community, as well as inventory and monitor historic shipwreck and aircraft wreck sites. 10. Operations and Administration: This action plan addresses the necessary operational and administrative activities required for implementing an effective program, including staffing, infrastructure needs, and operational improvements. IV. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Compliance jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 As required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), NOAA has prepared a DEA to evaluate the potential impacts on the human environment of implementing NOAA’s proposed action. The proposed action is to update NOAA’s management activities conducted within CINMS that relate to research, monitoring, education, outreach, community engagement, and resource protection. The proposed management activities include revising the sanctuary management plan and implementing routine field activities and existing sanctuary regulations. No significant impacts to resources and the human environment are expected to result from this proposed action. Accordingly, under NEPA, an Environmental Assessment is the appropriate document to analyze the potential impacts of this action. Following the close of the public comment period and the satisfaction of consultation requirements under any applicable natural and cultural resource statutes, NOAA will finalize its NEPA analysis and prepare a final NEPA document and decision document. NOAA is seeking public comment on the DMP and DEA, which are available at https://channelislands.noaa.gov/ manage/plan/revision.html or may be obtained by contacting the individual listed under the heading FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
