DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

Forest Service


Cibola National Forest Invasive Plant Management Project

AGENCY: Forest Service, USDA.

ACTION: Cancellation of notice of intent to prepare an environmental 
impact statement.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On April 29, 2002, Forest Supervisor Liz Agpaoa signed a 
Notice of Intent (NOT) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement 
(EIS) for the Cibola National Forest Invasive Plant Management Project. 
On May 3, 2002, the Federal Register published the Notice of Intent 
(NOT) (Volume 67, Number 86, pages 22389-22390). The Department of 
Agriculture, Forest Service is issuing this notice to advise the public 
that we are cancelling the notice of intent to prepare an environmental 
impact statement for this proposed action. The initial proposal 
provided for the inclusion of all the administrative units on the 
Cibola National Forest including the Kiowa, Rita Blanca, Black Kettle, 
and McClellan Creek National Grasslands. The areas included in the 
proposal vary widely in geographical and ecological settings and 
conditions, from woodlands and forests to short-grass and tall-grass 
prairies. The wide range of biological and physical settings 
complicates the analysis and disclosure of effects. The Forest Service 
plans to reassess the proposal and determine the appropriate scope of 
the proposal and form of environmental documentation. The NEPA process 
will be re-initiated for any new proposed actions.

National Forest, 2113 Osuna Road NE., Albuquerque, NM 87113, Phone 
(505) 346-3820, Fax (505) 346-3901.

    Dated: March 18, 2008.
Nancy Rose,
Forest Supervisor.
