For general information on the BLM’s public land sale procedures, refer to the following Web address: http://www.blm.gov/nhp/ what/lands/realtysales.htm. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Parcel N– 66141 is located approximately 6 miles west of the city of Winnemucca, Nevada, west of Airport Road, south of and adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, and is described as follows: Mount Diablo Meridian T. 35 N., R. 37 E. Sec. 16, lots 3, 8, 10, 11, 15, 16, and 17. The area described contains 177.31 acres, more or less, in Humboldt County. This parcel of public land is proposed for sale to the City of Winnemucca, Nevada, at no less than the appraised fair market value (FMV) of $210,000.00, as determined by the authorized officer. An appraisal report has been prepared by a State-certified appraiser for the purposes of establishing the FMV. Consistent with Section 203 of FLPMA, a tract of the public land may E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1 pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 134 / Friday, July 13, 2007 / Notices be sold where, as a result of approved land use planning, the sale of the tract meets the disposal criteria of that section. The lands described above are identified as suitable for disposal in the BLM Sonoma-Gerlach Management Framework Plan (MFP) signed July 9, 1982, and in the BLM Paradise-Denio and Sonoma-Gerlach Management Framework Plan Lands Amendment (Amendment), signed January 1999. The proposed disposal action is consistent with the objectives, goals, and decisions of the MFP and Amendment. MFP objective and decision L2.2 provides that the Winnemucca Field Office should dispose of this property to local governmental entities as identified by a local government, consistent with community plans. This sale also meets the criteria found in 43 CFR 2710.0–3(a)(2), which states: ‘‘Disposal of such tract shall serve important public objectives, including but not limited to, expansion of communities and economic development, which cannot be achieved prudently or feasibly on lands other than public lands and which outweigh other public objectives and values, including, but not limited to, recreation and scenic values, which would be served by maintaining such tract in Federal ownership.’’ The City of Winnemucca needs these lands to provide rail transportation to the Citydeveloped industrial park and for proposed airport expansion. The disposal (sale) of Parcel N–66141 also meets the criteria found under 43 CFR 2710.0–3(a)(3), which authorizes disposal where ‘‘such tract, because of its location or other characteristics is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands’’. The lands are isolated, surrounded by private lands, or intermingled with private lands as to make them difficult to manage for any Federal purpose. Parcel N–66141 is bordered on the north by the Union Pacific Railroad, on the east and south by city-owned property, and on the west by private property. There is no existing legal access to the subject lands. Regulation 43 CFR 2711.3–3(a), provides 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: (1) A tract identified for transfer to State or local government.’’ As noted above, these lands were identified in the MFP as to be disposed of to only a local governmental entity. The BLM prepared a preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) and VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:05 Jul 12, 2007 Jkt 211001 provided a 30-day comment period. All comments received have been considered and incorporated into the EA and Decision Record. The EA Number NV–020–06–EA–08, Decision Record, Environmental Site Assessment, map, and approved appraisal report covering the proposed sale are available for review at the BLM, Winnemucca Field Office, in Winnemucca, Nevada, at the address listed above. Termination of Exchange Segregation Lands described in this Notice were previously segregated under Exchange file N–80983, but a decision has been made not to proceed with this exchange. This Notice officially terminates that Exchange Segregation of the described lands. Pursuant to 43 CFR 2201.1–2(c) (2), this Notice will also serve as an opening order to restore the above described lands to operation of the sale provisions of sections 203 and 209 of the FLPMA, 43 U.S.C. 1713, 1719, and not the general mining laws, as of 7:30 a.m. on July 13, 2007. Sales Segregation Publication of this Notice in the Federal Register segregates the subject land from all forms of appropriations under the public land laws, including the general mining laws, except sale under the Sections 203 and 209 of FLPMA. The segregation will terminate upon issuance of the patent, upon publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, on July 13, 2009, whichever occurs first.

ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to applicable provisions of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (REA), 16 U.S.C. 6801, et seq., the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)’s Coeur d’Alene Field Office is proposing to begin collecting fees in 2008 at the Mineral Ridge Public Boat Launch site on Lake Coeur d’Alene, Kootenai County, Idaho. The site is located within section 1 of Township 49 North, Range 3 West. DATES: The public comment period will expire on August 13, 2007. The public is encouraged to participate in the public comment period. Effective six months after the publication of this notice, the BLM Coeur d’Alene Field Office will initiate fee collection at the Mineral Ridge Public Boat Launch site. The Coeur d’Alene District Resource Advisory Council (RAC) was presented this proposal on December 6, 2006 and supports initiation of fees at this site. Fees will be established by separate supplemental rules pursuant to 43 CFR 8365.1–6. Future adjustments in the fee amount will be modified in accordance with the Coeur d’Alene Field Office Recreation Fee Business Plan, consultation with the Coeur d’Alene District RAC and other public notice prior to a fee increase.

An annual pass would be available for $30.00 that would additionally be accepted at the BLM’s Blackwell Island Public Boat Launch which is also located on Lake Coeur d’Alene. Development of this site is consistent with the Emerald Empire Management Framework Plan (1981) and was analyzed in the Coeur d’Alene Lake Recreation Area Management Plan Environmental Assessment of May, 1993. The BLM is committed to providing, and receiving fair value for the use of, developed recreation facilities and services in a manner that meets public use demands, provides quality experiences and protects important resources. The BLM’s policy is to collect fees at all specialized recreation sites, or where the BLM provides facilities, equipment or services, at federal expense, in connection with outdoor use. In an effort to meet increasing demands for services and maintenance of developed facilities, the BLM would implement a fee program for the Mineral Ridge Public Boat Launch. The BLM’s mission for the site is to ensure that funding is available to maintain existing facilities and recreational opportunities, to provide for law enforcement presence, to develop additional services, and to protect resources. This mission entails communication with those who will be most directly affected by this project, including recreationists, other recreation providers, partners, neighbors, elected officials, other agencies and others who have a stake in addressing concerns that may arise from the BLM management of the site. Under section 3(g) of the REA, the Mineral Ridge Public Boat Launch on Lake Coeur d’Alene qualifies as a site wherein visitors can be charged an ‘‘Expanded Amenity Recreation Fee.’’ Visitors wishing to use the amenities at the site could purchase a recreation use permit (RUP) as described in 43 CFR Part 2930. Pursuant to the REA and implementing regulations at 43 CFR Subpart 2933, fees may be charged for day-use facilities such as the Mineral Ridge Public Boat Launch. Specific visitor fees and payment instructions will be clearly posted on site. Persons holding the America the Beautiful—The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands—Senior Pass (i.e. Interagency Senior Pass), a Golden Age Passport, or the America the Beautiful—The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands—Access Pass (i.e. Interagency Access Pass) or a Golden Access Passport will be entitled to a 50 percent E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1

    The area described contains 177.31 acres, more or less, in 
Humboldt County.

    This parcel of public land is proposed for sale to the City of 
Winnemucca, Nevada, at no less than the appraised fair market value 
(FMV) of $210,000.00, as determined by the authorized officer. An

    Consistent with Section 203 of FLPMA, a tract of the public land 
may

[[Page 38613]]

be sold where, as a result of approved land use planning, the sale of 
the tract meets the disposal criteria of that section. The lands 
described above are identified as suitable for disposal in the BLM 
Sonoma-Gerlach Management Framework Plan (MFP) signed July 9, 1982, and 
in the BLM Paradise-Denio and Sonoma-Gerlach Management Framework Plan 
Lands Amendment (Amendment), signed January 1999. The proposed disposal 
action is consistent with the objectives, goals, and decisions of the 
MFP and Amendment. MFP objective and decision L2.2 provides that the 
Winnemucca Field Office should dispose of this property to local 
governmental entities as identified by a local government, consistent 
with community plans.
    This sale also meets the criteria found in 43 CFR 2710.0-3(a)(2), 
which states: ``Disposal of such tract shall serve important public 
objectives, including but not limited to, expansion of communities and 
economic development, which cannot be achieved prudently or feasibly on 
lands other than public lands and which outweigh other public 
objectives and values, including, but not limited to, recreation and 
scenic values, which would be served by maintaining such tract in 
Federal ownership.'' The City of Winnemucca needs these lands to 
provide rail transportation to the City-developed industrial park and 
for proposed airport expansion.
    The disposal (sale) of Parcel N-66141 also meets the criteria found 
under 43 CFR 2710.0-3(a)(3), which authorizes disposal where ``such 
tract, because of its location or other characteristics is difficult 
and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands''. The lands are 
isolated, surrounded by private lands, or intermingled with private 
lands as to make them difficult to manage for any Federal purpose. 
Parcel N-66141 is bordered on the north by the Union Pacific Railroad, 
on the east and south by city-owned property, and on the west by 
private property. There is no existing legal access to the subject 
lands.
    Regulation 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a), provides 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: (1) A tract identified for transfer to 
State or local government.'' As noted above, these lands were 
identified in the MFP as to be disposed of to only a local governmental 
entity.
    The BLM prepared a preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) and 
provided a 30-day comment period. All comments received have been 
considered and incorporated into the EA and Decision Record. The EA 
Number NV-020-06-EA-08, Decision Record, Environmental Site Assessment, 
map, and approved appraisal report covering the proposed sale are 
available for review at the BLM, Winnemucca Field Office, in 
Winnemucca, Nevada, at the address listed above.

of a petroleum product, or waste(s), as defined by Federal and State 
environmental laws, are generated, released, stored, used, or otherwise 
disposed of on the patented real property, and any cleanup response, 
remedial action, or other actions related in any manner to said solid 
or hazardous substance(s) or waste(s), pollutant(s) or contaminant(s),

to the title, physical condition, or potential uses of the parcel of 
land proposed for sale, and the conveyance of any such parcel will not 
be on a contingency basis. It is the buyer's responsibility to be aware 
of all applicable Federal, State, and local government policies and 
regulations that would affect the subject lands. It is also the buyer's 
responsibility to be aware of existing or prospective uses of nearby 
properties. Any land lacking access from a public road or highway will 
be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will be the 
responsibility of the buyer.
    In the event of a sale, the unreserved mineral interests will be 
conveyed simultaneously with the sale of the land. These unreserved 
mineral interests have been determined to have no known mineral value 
pursuant to 43 CFR 2720.0-6 and 2720.2(a). Acceptance of the sale offer 
will constitute an application for conveyance of those unreserved 
mineral interests. The purchaser will be required to pay a $50.00 non-
refundable filing fee for conveyance of mineral interests, and for 
payment of publication costs. The purchaser must remit the remainder of 
the purchase price within 180 days from the date the sale offer is 
received. Payments must be by certified check, postal money order, bank 
draft, or cashiers check payable to the U.S. Department of the 
Interior--BLM. Failure to meet conditions established for this sale 
will void the sale and any monies received will be forfeited.
