Type: Notice
Date: 2006-04-25
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The National Park Service (NPS) is expanding the scope of the General Management Plan (GMP)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) being prepared for the Addition lands. As part of this planning effort, the NPS will include a wilderness study to determine if any portions of the Addition Lands of Big Cypress National Preserve (Preserve) should be recommended for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System as defined in the Wilderness Act of 1964. The NPS also will prepare an Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan that will address in more detail the management of off-road vehicles in the Addition Lands. These new elements will be included as part of the GMP/EIS currently in preparation. A Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS with that GMP was published in the Federal Register of June 12, 2001. That EIS now will be expanded to include an evaluation of the impacts associated with possible designation of wilderness and off-road vehicle management within the Addition Lands of the Preserve. This notice is being furnished as required by National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulation 40 CFR 1501.7. To facilitate sound planning and analysis of environmental impact, the NPS is gathering information necessary for the preparation of the GMP, the Wilderness Study, Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan and the associated EIS and is obtaining suggestions and information from other agencies and the public on the scope of issues to be addressed. Comments and participation in this scoping process are invited.

Dry Tortugas National Park-Special Regulations
Document Number: 06-3295
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-04-07
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The proposed rulemaking establishes special regulations for Dry Tortugas National Park. The proposed rule implements the act which established Dry Tortugas National Park and abolished Fort Jefferson National Monument. This proposed rule also implements provisions for visitor use and resource protection identified in the 2000 Final General Management Plan Amendment/Environmental Impact Statement for Dry Tortugas National Park, and the July 27, 2001 Record of Decision. This rulemaking complies with legislative mandates for protection of park resources in a unique and predominantly pristine ecosystem, and provides consistency with State fishing rules. This proposed rule would: (1) Remove obsolete regulations established for Fort Jefferson National Monument; (2) protect, monitor, and study the region's recognized importance to fisheries habitats by limiting the area, extent, and methods of recreational fishing within portions of the park's boundaries by implementing a Research Natural Area (RNA); (3) clarify the authority of the superintendent to regulate fishing, boating, and permitted activities, specifically in established management zones including the RNA; and establish a permit system for research and recreational users; (4) strengthen protection of nationally significant coral reef and other marine resources by regulating vessel operation, anchoring and human activity; (5) provide enhanced protection for shipwrecks consistent with state and federal law; and (6) provide for greater protection of water quality by restricting discharges into the water of the park. Definitions have also been added to clarify terminology.
