Notice of Intent To Prepare a Draft Environmental Impact 
Statement for a Special Use Permit to Dare County for Activities 
Related to the Protection of North Carolina Highway 12 in Cape Hatteras 
National Seashore, North Carolina

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of Intent.

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

SUMMARY: The National Park Service (NPS) is preparing a draft 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in response to a request from Dare 
County, North Carolina, for a Special Use Permit for activities related 
to the protection of North Carolina Highway 12 (Highway 12) in the 
Buxton area. The EIS will assist the NPS in determining whether, where, 
and under what conditions the NPS would issue a Special Use Permit to 
Dare County for actions related to the protection of Highway 12 in the 
Buxton Village area. The NPS is considering this proposal to address 
erosion issues and prevent future emergency closure of these areas of 
Highway 12 due to storm impacts to the road in this narrow area of 
Hatteras Island. This notice initiates the public scoping process for 
this EIS.

DATES: The date, time, and location of public meetings will be 
announced through the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment 
(PEPC) Web site http://parkplanning.nps.gov/caha, the Cape Hatteras 
National Seashore Web site, and in local media outlets. The NPS will 
conduct public meetings in the local area to receive input from 
interested parties on issues, concerns, and suggestions regarding the 
potential to issue a Special Use Permit to Dare County for activities 
related to the protection of Highway 12 in the Buxton area. The comment 
period will be announced at the meetings and will be published on the 
Cape Hatteras National Seashore Web site for this project at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/caha.

ADDRESSES: Interested individuals, organizations, and agencies are 
encouraged to provide written comments or suggestions to assist the NPS 
in determining the scope of issues related to the issuance of a Special 
Use Permit to Dare County for activities related to the protection of 
Highway 12 near Buxton. Written comments may be sent to: 
Superintendent, 1401 National

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Superintendent, 1401 National Park 
Road, Manteo, North Carolina 27954 at the address shown above, by phone 
at (252) 475-9000, or via email at CAHA_Superintendent@nps.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to Section 102(2)(c) of the 
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, a draft EIS will be prepared 
and presented to the public for review and comment, followed by 
preparation and availability of the final EIS. Alternatives to be 
developed and considered in the EIS will likely focus on strategies for 
the protection of Highway 12, particularly in and around the areas of 
Buxton village that are regularly impacted or threatened by storms. The 
EIS will look to identify practical solutions, such as the 
consideration of beach nourishment, to address these threats and 
ongoing impacts. Before including your address, phone number, email 
address, or other personal identifying information in any 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.
    The responsible official for this EIS is the Regional Director, NPS 
Southeast Region, 100 Alabama Street SW., 1924 Building, Atlanta, 
Georgia 30303.

    Dated: December 19, 2014.
