ACTION: Notice of realty action. PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11677 SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to sell directly to Hollis and Dorothy Vaughn a parcel of public land in Hidalgo County, New Mexico, pursuant to sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), at not less than the appraised market value. DATES: Comments must be received by not later than April 24, 2006. ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent to the District Manager, BLM, Las Cruces District Office, 1800 Marquess, Las Cruces, NM 88005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lori Allen, Realty Specialist, at (505) 525– 4454 or by e-mail at Lori_Allen@nm.blm.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The public land proposed for sale is described as follows: New Mexico Principal Meridian T. 18 S., R. 20 W., Sec. 12, N1⁄2NW1⁄4NE1⁄4SW1⁄4. The area described contains 5 acres, more or less. The appraised market value for this parcel is $3,000. The Mimbres Resource Management Plan dated December 1993 makes allowance for a direct sale when the public interest would be served. In this case, the BLM authorized officer finds that the public interest would be best served by a direct sale to Hollis and Dorothy Vaughn to resolve an unintentional, unauthorized occupancy of public land managed by the BLM. In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0– 6(c)(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3–3(a), direct sale procedures are appropriate to resolve an inadvertent unauthorized occupancy of the land and to protect existing equities in the land. The unauthorized occupancy involves the encroachment of a large metal barn, corrals, and ranch equipment currently used by Hollis and Dorothy Vaughn. The Vaughns own the private property adjacent to the subject BLM parcel. The initial occupancy began when a previous private landowner built the improvements on the public land assuming it was part of their adjacent private ownership. Access to the subject BLM parcel is through private property owned by the Vaughns. The sale would assemble the public land to the Vaughn property, protect the improvements placed on the land by the previous private landowner, and resolve an inadvertent trespass. The parcel is the minimum size possible to ensure that all of the improvements are included. The proponent, Hollis and Dorothy Vaughn, will be allowed 30 days from receipt of a written offer to submit a deposit of at E:\FR\FM\08MRN1.SGM 08MRN1
