    General Location: Southern part of the Las Vegas Valley 
southeast of the intersection of Decatur Boulevard and Starr Hills 
Avenue.
    The areas described contain 230.26 acres, more or less.

    Clark County has filed R&PP applications to develop the above 
described land as six public parks. Additional detailed information 
pertaining to this application, plan of development, and site plan are 
in the case files, which are located in the Bureau of Land Management 
(BLM) Las Vegas Field Office.
    Clark County is a political subdivision of the State of Nevada and 
is therefore a qualified applicant under the R&PP Act. The land is not 
required for any Federal purpose. The lease/conveyance is consistent 
with the BLM Las Vegas Resource Management Plan, dated October 5, 1998, 
and would be in the public interest. The plans of development have been 
reviewed and it is determined the proposed action conforms with land 
use plan decision, LD-1, established in accordance with section 202 of 
the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 
1712). The lease/conveyance, 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).
    2. All minerals shall be reserved to the United States, together

same under applicable law and such regulations as the Secretary of the 
Interior may prescribe.
