Conveyance of the Boundary Cone Road location would be consistent with the Kingman Resource Management Plan if the plan amendment is approved. Conveyance of public land for a shooting range would be in the public interest. The conveyance, if issued, would be subject to the provisions of the R&PP Act and applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior and would contain the following reservations to the United States: 1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945). 2.

Classification Comments: Interested parties may submit comments involving the suitability of the Willow Road location for a shooting range site. Comments on the classification are restricted to whether the land is physically suited for the proposal, whether the use will maximize the future use or uses of the land, whether the use is consistent with local planning and zoning, or if the use is consistent with State and Federal programs.

Resource Management Plan Amendment/Environmental Assessment

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 202 of the Federal Land Policy and 
Management Act (FLPMA) of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1712) as amended, the Bureau 
of Land Management (BLM) has prepared an Environmental Assessment/
Resource Management Plan (RMP) Amendment for a proposed shooting range. 
This document, available online at http://www.blm.gov/az/env_docs/

on public lands and of amending the RMP to allow for disposal of land 
necessary for the shooting range and special management designation of 
land necessary for the buffer, for the Boundary Cone road alternative 
as described in Supplementary Information below. Pursuant to section 
212 of FLPMA, the BLM has examined and found suitable for conveyance 
under the provisions of the Recreation and Public Purposes (R&PP) Act 
(43 U.S.C. 869 et seq.), as amended, two parcels of public land, as 
described in Supplementary Information below, in Mohave Valley near 
Bullhead City, Mohave County, Arizona. This notice invites comments on 
BLM's classification of that land as suitable for conveyance under the 
R&PP Act.

DATES: Protests regarding the proposed land use plan amendment must be 
postmarked by July 21, 2006. Comments regarding R&PP classification of 
public land must be postmarked by August 7, 2006.

ADDRESSES: Protests regarding the plan amendment on the Boundary Cone 
Road location should be sent to the Director, Bureau of Land 
Management, Attention: Brenda Williams (WO-210), for mail: P. O. Box

approved in March 1995, identified land for R&PP uses, i.e. churches, 
schools, parks, fire departments, etc. with a caveat that non-
conforming uses may be considered on a case-by-case basis. A shooting 
range is considered to be a non-conforming use. A Notice was previously 
published, 68 FR 14687, March 26, 2003, regarding the intent to amend 
the Kingman Resource Management Plan and classify lands for Recreation 
and Public Purpose for a proposed shooting range as reiterated below:

    Containing 470 acres, more or less.

    This location is known as the Boundary Cone Road location and is 
the proponent's proposed action. It has been examined and found 
suitable for conveyance under the provisions of the R&PP Act, as 
amended (43 U.S.C. 869 et seq.) and the public lands described are 
proposed for classification under section 7 of the Taylor Grazing Act, 
43 U.S.C. 315f and Executive Order No. 6910 and the R&PP Act.
    Due to Native American concerns, BLM initiated an Alternative 
Dispute Resolution process with affected stakeholders, including the 
Fort Mojave and Hualapai tribes, which resulted in the addition of 
another alternative for analysis. This alternative, known as the Willow 
Road location, has been examined and found suitable for conveyance 
under the provisions of the R&PP Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 869 et 
seq.) and the public lands described below are proposed for 
classification under section 7 of the Taylor Grazing Act, 43 U.S.C. 
315f and Executive Order No. 6910 and the R&PP Act. This location is on 
public land described as follows:

Gila and Salt River Meridian, Arizona

T. 18 N., R. 21 W.,
    Sec. 28, NE\1/4\, NE\1/4\NE\1/4\NW\1/4\, S\1/2\N\1/2\NW\1/4\, 
S\1/2\NW\1/4\, S\1/2\;
    The area described contains approximately 610 acres in Mohave 
County.

    The public lands described above were identified for disposal in 
the Kingman Resource Management Plan as land not needed for Federal 
(BLM) purposes and available to support community expansion. Conveyance 
of the Boundary Cone Road location would be consistent with the Kingman 
Resource Management Plan if the plan amendment is approved. Conveyance 
of public land for a shooting range would be in the public interest. 
The conveyance, if issued, would be subject to the provisions of the 
R&PP Act and applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior 
and would contain the following reservations to the United States:
    1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches and canals constructed by the 
authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).
    2. All Federal minerals shall be reserved to the United States, 
together with the right to prospect for, mine and remove such deposits 
from the same under applicable law and such regulations as the 
Secretary of the Interior may prescribe.
    And the conveyance would be subject to:
    1. Valid existing rights.
    In addition, if the Boundary Cone Road location is selected, the 
conveyance would be subject to:
    1. Those rights for highway purposes as have been granted to Mohave 
County, its successors or assigns, by right-of-way No. AZA-20911 
pursuant to Title V of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of
