This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Summary: Pursuant to section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (Pub. L. 91-190, as amended) and the regulations promulgated by the Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR 1505.2), the Department of the Interior, National Park Service has prepared and approved a Record of Decision for the Final Environmental Impact Statement and General Management Plan, Crater Lake National Park. The new GMP replaces the 1977 Master Plan, and will serve as a blueprint for guiding operations, resource protection, and visitor services in the park for the next 10-15 years. The requisite no-action “wait period” was initiated June 10, 2005, with the Environmental Protection Agency's Federal Register notification of the filing of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS).
Decision: As soon as practical the National Park Service will begin to implement the actions and programs identified and analyzed as the Preferred Alternative (Alternative 2) contained in the FEIS. This alternative was deemed to be the “environmentally preferred” alternative. This course of action and three alternatives (including no-action) were identified and analyzed in the Final and Draft Environmental Impact Statements (the opportunity for public review of the latter was announced in the Federal Register on August 3, 2004). The full range of foreseeable environmental consequences was assessed, and appropriate mitigation measures have been identified.
Copies: Interested parties desiring to review the Record of Decision may obtain a copy by contacting the Superintendent, Crater Lake National Park, P.O. Box 7, Crater Lake, Oregon 97604; or via telephone request at (541) 594-2211.Start Signature
