FRIENDS OF YOSEMITE VALLEY, ET AL. PLAINTIFFS,
KENNETH L. SALAZAR, IN HIS OFFICIAL CAPACITY AS SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Anthony W. Ishii Chief United States District Judge
STIPULATION REGARDING PREPARATION OF DOCUMENTS UNDER SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT AND ORDER [PROPOSED]
On December 22, 2009, defendants, Secretary of the Interior Kenneth L. Salazar, et al., filed a notice (Doc. # 481) to advise the Court and the plaintiffs regarding the preparation of three documents under the Settlement Agreement (Doc. # 477), which the Court approved on September 30, 2009, and entered on October 1, 2009 (Doc. # 479). Paragraph C.1.a. of the Settlement Agreement calls for the defendants to prepare a revised Record of Decision for the Yosemite Valley Plan and revised Findings of No Significant Impact for the Yosemite Lodge and Curry Village Campgrounds Projects within 90 days of Court approval of the Settlement Agreement. Because Court approval of the Settlement Agreement was entered on October 1, 2009, the 90-day period expired on Wednesday, December 30, 2009.
As defendants informed the Court, they are drafting the three documents, which the park staff is reviewing and revising to ensure conformity with all legal requirements, but an additional time of 30 days is required to complete the three documents. Plaintiffs' counsel subsequently notified defendants that they do not object to the requested extension.
Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to the extension of 30 days, until January 29, 2010, for the defendants to complete the three documents in question.
Respectfully submitted this 5th day of January, 2010.
