SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC has received, by letter dated May 
20, 2005, an application filed by R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant, LLC 
(Ginna LLC) requesting the release of a part of the site for 
unrestricted use at its Ginna Plant. Before approving the proposed 
partial site release, the NRC will need to determine that the licensee 
has met the criteria set forth in Section 50.83 of 10 CFR Part 50. The 
tract of land proposed for release consists of two adjacent parcels, 
comprising a total of approximately 15 acres located along the western 
edge of the Ginna Plant site boundary, and is entirely outside of the 
Exclusion Area.
    The NRC had previously provided notice in the Federal Register on 
July 11, 2005 (70 FR 39802) to individuals in the vicinity of the 
facility that the NRC was in receipt of a proposed request release of 
the part of the site and would accept written comments concerning this 
proposal by August 10, 2005. Furthermore, the NRC stated that, before 
acting upon this request, it would also conduct a public meeting in the 
vicinity of the Ginna Plant for the purpose of obtaining public 
comments. The NRC will consider and, if appropriate, respond to these 
written and verbal comments, but such comments will not otherwise 
constitute part of the decisional record. Comments received after the 
public meeting will be considered if practicable to do so, but only 
those comments received on or before the public meeting can be assured 
    Documents related to this action, including the application for 
approval and supporting documentation, are available for public 
inspection at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One 
White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first 
floor), Rockville, Maryland. Publicly available records will also be 
accessible electronically as text and image files from the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System's (ADAMS) Public Electronic 
Reading Room on the Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. Persons who do not have access to ADAMS or who 
encounter problems in accessing the documents located in ADAMS, should
