AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement 
for the Southern Terminus of the Natchez Trace Parkway and notice of 
public meetings.

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

SUMMARY: 

1. Background and Description of the Proposed Action

    In accordance with section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969, Public Law 91-190, the National Park Service (NPS) 
is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to determine the 
final alignment and the impacts of constructing this final portion of 
the Natchez Trace Parkway in Adams County, Mississippi. This portion 
will include the southern terminus of the parkway and extend from U.S. 
84/98 through the city of Natchez to the vicinity of the Mississippi 
River, a distance of approximately 7 miles. The EIS will evaluate 
potential impacts from a range of alternatives which address cultural 
and natural resources protection, transportation and socioeconomic 
concerns, visitor use, visual characteristics, and interpretation.
    The Natchez Trace Parkway, established in 1938, is a 445-mile long 
scenic road that follows the historic route of the Natchez Trace. The 
parkway links the cities of Natchez, Mississippi and Nashville, 
Tennessee. About 400 miles of the parkway have been completed. The 
purpose of the parkway is to provide and maintain a scenic and 
recreational roadway commemorating the historic Old Natchez Trace and 
to provide access to significant natural and cultural resources along 
the route.

2. Scoping Process/Public Involvement

    Scoping meetings will be held for the general public as well as 
particular interest and community groups during the winter of 1994. The 
purpose of scoping is to determine the scope of issues to be addressed 
and to identify the significant issues related to the project. Meetings 
will be conducted in the cities of Natchez and Jackson. Meeting dates, 
locations, and times will be announced through local media.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
To obtain information or provide comments other than at the meetings, 
please contact Dan Brown, Superintendent, Natchez Trace Parkway, Rural 
Route 1, NT-143, Tupelo, Mississippi 38801, telephone (601 680-4003. 
The responsible official for this EIS is James W. Coleman, Jr., 
Regional Director, Southeast Region, 75 Spring Street, SW., Atlanta, 
Georgia 30303.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Representatives from the EIS team will be 
present to receive comments and answer questions at the public 
meetings. The public is encouraged to attend and submit verbal and/or 
written comments regarding the proposed action and EIS.
    The draft and final EIS will be distributed to all known interested 
parties and appropriate agencies. Full public participation by Federal, 
State, and local agencies as well as other concerned organizations and 
private citizens is invited during this scoping process and throughout 
preparation of the document.
