ACTION: Notice of realty action. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has examined and determined that 50 acres of public land (2 parcels) located in Grand County, Utah are suitable for disposal by direct (non-competitive) sale to the Palladium Foundation LLC, the adjacent landowner, at no less than the appraised fair market value, pursuant to Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended. The parcels are isolated from other public lands by adjacent private land and topography and are difficult to manage as part of the public lands. It has been determined that resource values will not be affected by the disposal of the two parcels as mitigated in the patent. The non-competitive sale is justified by lack of physical access to the lands by anyone other than the adjacent landowner. Disposal of the parcels will resolve historic use of the lands for livestock grazing and hay production which have been authorized by BLM under land use permit UTU– 64085 since 1989. The permit will be terminated at the time of sale. DATES: Interested parties may submit comments to the BLM Moab Field Office Manager, at the address below. Comments must be received no later than June 4, 2007. Only written comments will be accepted. ADDRESSES: Address all written comments concerning this notice to the BLM Moab Field Manager, 82 East Dogwood Avenue, Moab, Utah 84532.

PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19957 The following described lands in Grand County, Utah have been determined to be suitable for sale. The lands will be sold at no less than the fair market value established by appraisal at $50,000 by a certified appraiser. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Salt Lake Meridian, Utah T. 21 S., R. 24 E., Sec. 27, E1⁄2NW1⁄4SE1⁄4, and NE1⁄4SW1⁄4SE1⁄4; Sec. 34, NE1⁄4NE1⁄4NE1⁄4NE1⁄4; sec. 35, NE1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4, N1⁄2NW1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4, and SE1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4NW1⁄4. The areas described contain 50 acres, more or less, in Grand County. The sale meets the disposal criteria in Section 203 (a)(1) of FLPMA and 43 CFR 2710.0–3 (a)(3) because the location and topography of the parcels make them difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands and they are not suitable for management by another Federal department or agency. The sale meets the criteria for direct sale under 43 CFR 2711.3–3 (a)(3, 4, and 5) based on the fact that the public lands have been an integral part of agricultural use on the adjoining private land since the 1980s, they are isolated from other public lands by surrounding private ownership and topography, and the sale to the adjacent private owner would resolve a long-term occupancy of the public lands. The parcels were identified for disposal in the March 10, 1995, amendment to the BLM Grand Resource Area Resource Management Plan approved in July 1985, and therefore meet the disposal qualification of the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000 (FLTFA) (43 U.S.C. 2304). Proceeds from the sale will be deposited in the Federal Land Disposal Account for Utah pursuant to FLTFA. The land will not be offered for sale until at least 60 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. This land is being offered as a direct non-competitive sale to the adjacent landowner. The parcels are not required for any Federal purpose or program. Sale of the parcels is consistent with current BLM land use planning and would be in the public interest. The terms and conditions applicable to the sale are: 1. All valid existing rights of record, including those documented on the official public land records at the time of sale. 2. A reservation to the United States for rights-of-way for ditches or canals under the Act of August 20, 1890 (26 Stat. 391; 43 U.S.C. 945). E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1
