Notice of Proposed Withdrawal and Public Meeting, Thompson Divide Area, Colorado


ACTION:
Notice of proposed withdrawal.

SUMMARY:
On behalf of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Forest Service, the Secretary of the Interior proposes to withdraw approximately 224,793.73 acres, including approximately 200,518.28 acres of National Forest System lands, approximately 15,464.99 acres of BLM-managed public lands, and approximately 8,810.46 acres of reserved Federal mineral interest, from all forms of entry, appropriation, and disposal under the public land laws; location, entry, and patent under the mining laws; and operation of the mineral leasing, mineral materials, and geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights. The boundary of the proposed withdrawal area also includes approximately 35,472.94 acres of non-Federal lands with no Federal interest, which would not be subject to the proposed withdrawal unless they are subsequently acquired by the Federal Government. The withdrawal is proposed for a period of 20 years to protect agricultural, ranching, wildlife, air quality, recreational, ecological, and scenic values in the Thompson Divide Area of Colorado. This notice segregates the land for 2 years from all forms of entry, appropriation, and disposal under the public land laws; location, entry, and patent under the mining laws; and operation of the mineral leasing, mineral materials, and geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights, and initiates a 90-day public comment period on the proposed withdrawal.

DATES:
Comments must be received by the BLM January 16, 2023. A public meeting is scheduled for December 14, 2022.

ADDRESSES:
Comments should be sent to State Director, Bureau of Land Management, Colorado State Office, 2850 Youngfield Street, Lakewood, Colorado 80215, or email them to: BLM_CO_Thompson_Divide@blm.gov.

The areas described, including both Federal and non-Federal lands, aggregate approximately 260,266.67 acres.

The Secretary of the Interior has approved the petition to file the withdrawal application. The Secretary's approval constitutes her proposal to withdraw the subject lands. The USDA Forest Service has consented to proposing the withdrawal of lands under its administrative jurisdiction. (43 CFR 2310.1-3(e)).

The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative agreement, or surface management under 43 CFR part 3800, subpart 3809 regulations would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses and would not provide adequate protection of cultural, recreational, and biological resources, nor the financial investments in public campgrounds and other improvements on these lands.

There are no suitable alternative sites, as the described lands contain the resource values that need protection.

Water rights will not be needed to fulfill the purpose of the proposed withdrawal.

For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their views in writing to the BLM Colorado State Director at the address listed above (see ADDRESSES ).

Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Colorado State Office during regular business hours, 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. Before including your address, phone number, email 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. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives of officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public inspection in their entirety.

Notice of a public meeting will be announced in at least one newspaper of general circulation in the area of the proposed withdrawal at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the meeting. A public meeting is scheduled for December 14, 2022.

For a period until October 17, 2024, subject to valid existing rights, the lands and mineral interests in this notice will be segregated from all forms of entry, appropriation, and disposal under the public land laws; location and entry under the mining laws; and operation of the mineral leasing, mineral materials, and geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights, unless the proposal is canceled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date..

Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land use authorizations of a temporary nature may be allowed with the approval of the authorized officers of the USDA Forest Service or the BLM during the segregation period.

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

(Authority: 43 CFR 2310.3-1(a))

BLM Colorado State Director.
