Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION:

Notice of Proposed Withdrawal Extension

SUMMARY:

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposing to extend the Fort Carson-Piñon Canyon Military Lands Withdrawal created by Subtitle A of Public Law 104-201 of September 23, 1996 (110 Stat 2807), for an additional 15 years. A withdrawal extension would continue to protect the following lands and minerals and reserve them for use by the Secretary of the Army Fort Carson Military Reservation which includes 3,133 acres of public lands and 11,415 acres of federally owned minerals; and Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site which includes 2,517 acres of public lands and approximately 130,139 acres of federally owned minerals. The withdrawal extension would protect the surface and mineral estates from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws including mining and mineral laws, geothermal leasing laws and mineral materials disposal laws. The withdrawal created by Public Law 104-201 will expire on September 22, 2011, unless extended. This notice gives the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed action to extend the withdrawal and gives notice of the opportunity for a public meeting.

Sec. 25, metes and bounds parcel contiguous to U. S. Highway No 350 in the SE1/4NE1/4;

Sec. 25, N1/2N1/2 and E1/2SE1/4.

The areas described, including both surface and mineral estates, aggregate approximately 147,204 acres in El Paso, Pueblo, Fremont and Las Animas Counties.

The proposed withdrawal extension would continue to protect the Fort Carson Military Reservation at Colorado Springs, and the associated Piñon Canyon Maneuver Area for military maneuvering, training and weapons firing and other defense-related purposes. The use of a right-of-way or a cooperative agreement would not provide adequate protection for the Federal investment in the areas and is not authorized for those purposes. There are no suitable alternative sites as the described lands and mineral interests contain the military values in need of protection. The Army would not need to acquire water rights to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension.

The Army held public meetings in conjunction with the proposed withdrawal extension: November 1, 2006, at Mesa Right High School, 6070 Mesa Ridge Parkway, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80911; November 2, 2006, at Trinidad State Jr. College, Sullivan Student Center, 600 Prospect St., Trinidad, Colorado; and November 3, 2006, at Otero Jr. College, Student Center Banquet Room, 2001 San Juan Ave., La Junta, Colorado.

Notice is hereby given that one or more public meetings will be held in connection with the proposed withdrawal extension. A notice of the time and place of any public meetings will be published in the Federal Register and at least one local newspaper at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the meeting. Further documentation, map information, as well as public comments including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for

public review at the BLM Colorado State Office at the address above during regular business hours, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

This application will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth at 43 CFR part 2300.
