On February 15, 2013, a Notice of Internet Availability for the EA, Appendices and unsigned Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) were sent to 118 individuals, groups and agencies that had expressed an interest in the project. Also, a legal notice requesting public comment to the EA and FONSI appeared in the Baker City Herald newspaper of Baker City. The EA and FONSI were released for public comment from March 6, 2013 to April 5, 2013. As a result of this scoping, one letter was received. Some of the concerns raised in the letter were addressed with additional material in the EA. Other concerns and issues raised are addressed in an attachment with the Decision Record, as well as the BLM responses. A complete list of the response to comments received can be found in Addendum 1 to the Decision Record. As a result of the comments, some clarification and additional supporting information was added to the EA.
