Notice and request for comments.
The National Park Service (NPS) in conjunction with the U.S. Navy and the University of Vermont, is proposing in 2001 to conduct a survey of military and civilian employees of the U.S. Navy Base located in the Schoodic Peninsula section of Acadia National Park. In the survey, employees will be asked about their recreational use of Acadia National Park and their feelings about how Navy Base property should be used if and when it is transferred to the National Park Service.Start Printed Page 60208

Under provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and 5 CFR Part 1320, Reporting and Record Keeping Requirements, the National Park Service is soliciting comments on the need for gathering the information in the proposed surveys. The NPS also is asking for comments on the practical utility of the information being gathered; the accuracy of the burden hour estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden to respondents, including use of automated information collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
The NPS goal in conducting this survey is to determine the amount and type of recreational use of Acadia National Park by U.S. Navy Base employees, and how these employees feel about potential future uses of Navy Base property if and when this property is transferred to the National Park Service
Public comments will be accepted on or before December 11, 2000.
