This land is being offered by direct sale to Owyhee County pursuant to 43 CFR 2711.3–3 to construct, operate and maintain a municipal solid waste facility (landfill) to serve the residents of Owyhee County and accommodate community growth and expansion. To provide for future landfill space needs, Owyhee County contracted a study to locate a suitable site in the northwest part of the County. A site on public land south of Marsing, Idaho, was recommended. Owyhee County has purchased space in the regional depository and landfill site at the Pickle’s Butte landfill in Canyon County, Idaho, but that site is filling up much more quickly than previously projected, resulting in a future landfill space issue for Owyhee County. 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 2720.2(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 the available mineral interests. The purchaser will have 30 days from the date of receiving the sale offer to accept the offer and to submit a deposit of 10 percent of the purchase price and the $50.00 filing fee for conveyance of mineral interests. 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.

E7–16345 Filed 8–17–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–22–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Bureau of Land Management [WY–070–07–1610–DU] Notice of Intent (NOI) To Amend the Resource Management Plan for the Buffalo Field Office, Wyoming Bureau of Land Management, Interior. ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office, Wyoming, proposes to amend its 1985 Resource Management Plan (RMP) because of changes in circumstances and proposed actions that may result in changes in the scope of resource uses and/or changes in decisions of the approved plan. The BLM will evaluate the following: (1) Management guidance for the Fortification Creek area, (2) Designation of an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) in the Fortification Creek area, and (3) a potential land exchange with the State of Wyoming to consolidate ownership and facilitate management of the Fortification Creek area. The BLM may consider further land use planning decisions for the area surrounding the proposed ACEC. DATES: Scoping for the proposed plan amendment will commence on the date that this notice is published in the Federal Register. The BLM will host several public, open house meetings to provide additional information about the proposed amendment, and identify any additional resource information or concerns. The BLM will announce the dates and locations of public meetings at least 15 days in advance through local PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46511 news media, Web site announcements, or mailings. Written comments will be accepted for 30 calendar days after the last public meeting. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be submitted to the BLM through any of the following methods: • Web site: http://www.blm.gov/wy/ st/en/info/NEPA/bfodocs/ fortification_creek.html; • E-mail: Fort_Crk_WYMail@blm.gov; • Fax: (307) 684–1122; • Mail: Fortification Creek RMP Amendment, BLM Buffalo Field Office, 1425 Fort Street, Buffalo, WY 82834; or • By personal delivery to the Buffalo Field Office or at a BLM-hosted public meeting. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas Bills, Project Manager, BLM Buffalo Field Office, 1425 Fort Street, Buffalo, Wyoming 82834, or by telephone at (307) 684–1133. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Buffalo RMP and associated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) were prepared in 1985; the RMP was amended in 2003. The 1985 RMP identified an area of approximately 12,415 acres as having wilderness characteristics and established it as the Fortification Creek (Fort Creek) Wilderness Study Area (WSA). The 1985 RMP also evaluated an area adjacent to the Fort Creek WSA to determine whether it met ACEC relevance and importance criteria, but it did not designate the area as an ACEC in its Record of Decision (ROD). In addition, the 1985 RMP stated that the area surrounding the WSA would require special management. However, it did not specify what resource values were in need of special management, nor did it clearly describe limitations or use restrictions that might be needed to manage those resource values. This RMP amendment process will evaluate resources and issues related to the planning criteria, including the designation of an area surrounding the Fort Creek WSA as an ACEC and the appropriate management actions and use restrictions for the ACEC, if designated. The Fort Creek area is located in Campbell, Johnson, and Sheridan Counties, Wyoming. The purpose of the scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis and alternatives. Scoping comments will also guide the planning process. The BLM will prepare an associated NEPA document, either an Environmental Assessment (EA) or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), based on scoping comments and issues. E:\FR\FM\20AUN1.SGM 20AUN1
