Churches are a common applicant under the ‘‘public purposes’’ provision of the R&PP Act. The Calvary Chapel Green Valley Church is an Internal Revenue Service registered non-profit organization and is, therefore, a qualified applicant under the R&PP Act. The land is not needed for any Federal purpose. The lease/conveyance is consistent with the Las Vegas Resource Management Plan dated October 5, 1998, and would be in the public interest. The lease/patent, when issued, will be subject to the provisions of the R&PP Act and applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior, and will contain the following reservations to the United States: 1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches or canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945); and 2.

All valid existing rights documented on the official public land records at the time of lease/patent issuance. On October 4, 2007, the land described above will be segregated from all other forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for lease/ conveyance under the R&PP Act, leasing under the mineral leasing laws, and disposals under the mineral material disposal laws. Interested parties may submit comments involving the suitability of the land for a church, school, day care center and related facilities. Comments on the classification are restricted to whether the land is physically suited for VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:20 Oct 03, 2007 Jkt 214001 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. Interested parties may submit comments regarding the specific use proposed in the application and plan of development, whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision to lease/convey under the R&PP Act, or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the land for R&PP use. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.
