VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:22 Jun 13, 2007 Jkt 211001 ACTION: Notice of realty action. SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to offer the Federal interest in public lands consisting of a reversionary interest, by direct sale, containing approximately 60 acres. The public lands have been designated for disposal within Clark County, Nevada, to Basic Management Incorporated (BMI) and will be offered for direct sale. The interest in land proposed for sale has been authorized and designated for disposal under the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act of 1998 (112 Stat. 2343), as amended (hereinafter ‘‘SNPLMA’’). The reversionary interest in the lands will be offered noncompetitively in accordance with the applicable provisions of Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA) (43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719), and FLPMA’s implementing regulations, in particular 43 CFR 2711.3–3. The environmental assessment, map, approved appraisal report and other supporting documentation are available for review at the BLM, Las Vegas Field Office (LVFO), Las Vegas, Nevada. DATES: Written comments regarding the proposed sale must be received by the BLM on or before July 30, 2007. ADDRESSES: Comments regarding the proposed sale should be addressed to: Field Manager, Las Vegas Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89130. More detailed information regarding the proposed sale and the land involved may be reviewed during normal business hours (7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at the BLM, Las Vegas Field Office (LVFO). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You may contact Anna Wharton, Supervisory Realty Specialist at (702) 515–5082. You may also call (702) 515– 5000 and ask to have your call directed to a member of the Sales Team. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This sale is in conformance with the BLM, Las Vegas Resource Management Plan, approved October 15, 1998. BLM has determined that the sale action conforms with the land use plan decision LD–1 under the authority of FLPMA. The land contains no other known public values. The reversionary interest for the parcel will be sold at not less than the appraised fair market value (FMV) of the parcel, which has been determined to be $18,068,000.00. Appraisal of the reversionary interest was conducted in accordance with Federal appraisal standards and PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32859 reviewed by the Department of the Interior prior to sale of public land or an interest in public land. On April 15, 1965, BMI, received a patent to approximately 60 acres of land under an Act of Congress dated August 27, 1954 (68 Stat. A223) (Act). Consistent with the Act, this patent was issued for the development, production, pumping, storage, transmission, and distribution of water. The patent contains a provision that states ‘‘provided, that, whenever the land herein granted shall cease to be used for the purposes for which it was granted, the estate of the grantee or its assigns shall terminate and revest to the United States’’. The land has been used by BMI for 39 years for the purposes allowed in the patent in providing water for the City of Henderson, Nevada’s municipal water system. Basic Environmental Company, LLC (BEC) as successor to Basic Management Incorporated, has requested a purchase of the reversionary interest, the remaining interest in the patented land held by the United States. Regulation 43 CFR part 2711–3–3(a) states that ‘‘Direct sales (without competition) may be utilized, when in the opinion of the authorized officer, a competitive sale is not appropriate and the public interest would best be served by a direct sale. Examples include, but are not limited to * * * (2) A tract identified for sale that is an integral part of a project of public importance and speculative bidding would jeopardize a timely completion and economic viability of the project; and (3) There is a need to recognize an authorized use such as an existing business which could suffer a substantial economic loss if the tract were purchased by other than the authorized user.’’ Due to the patent that authorizes the existing improvements owned and maintained by BEC, and the continuing use of the land to provide municipal water to the City of Henderson, it is impracticable for the United States to sell the land to any entity other than the current title holder. The SNPLMA directs orderly disposal of land. In the opinion of the authorized officer, a direct sale to BEC, best serves the public interest. Existing improved lands consist of 19.3 acres and the balance equals 40.7 acres, totaling 60 acres. Land Proposed for Sale Mount Diablo Meridian, Nevada T. 21 S., R. 63 E., Sec. 33, SE1⁄4SE1⁄4NE1⁄4SW1⁄4, E1⁄2NE1⁄4SE1⁄4SW1⁄4, NE1⁄4SE1⁄4SE1⁄4SW1⁄4, S1⁄2NW1⁄4SE1⁄4, N1⁄2SW1⁄4SE1⁄4, and N1⁄2S1⁄2SW1⁄4SE1⁄4.
