Comments on the Moab Field Office DRMP/DEIS received from the public and internal BLM review were considered and incorporated as appropriate into the PRMP/FEIS. Public comments resulted in the addition of clarifying text, but did not significantly change proposed land use plan decisions. Instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM regarding the PRMP/FEIS may be found in the Dear Reader Letter of the PRMP/FEIS and at 43 CFR 1610.5–2. E-mail and faxed protests will not be accepted as valid protests unless the protesting party also provides the original letter by either regular or overnight mail postmarked by the close of the protest period. Under these conditions, the BLM will consider the e-mail or faxed protest as an advance copy and it will receive full consideration. If you wish to provide the BLM with such advance notification, please direct faxed protests to the attention of the BLM protest coordinator at 202–452–5112, and emails to Brenda_HudgensWilliams@blm.gov. All protests, including the follow-up letter (if emailing or faxing) must be in writing and mailed to the appropriate address, as set forth in the ADDRESSES section above. Before including your phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your protest, you should be aware that your entire protest—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your protest to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Selma Sierra, Utah State Director.

ACTION: Notice. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to offer by non-competitive sale one parcel of land in northwest Las Vegas, Nevada totaling approximately 5.19 acres to Nevada Power Company (NPC). This land has been examined and found suitable for disposal utilizing direct sale procedures. The authority for the sale is under Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), 43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719, respectively, and BLM land sale and mineral conveyance regulations at 43 CFR 2710 and 2720. VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:39 Jul 31, 2008 Jkt 214001 Written comments regarding the proposed sale or the environmental assessment (EA) will be accepted until September 15, 2008. ADDRESSES: Mail written comments to the BLM Field Manager, Las Vegas Field Office, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Manuela Johnson at (702) 515–5224. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following described land, parcel N– 83621, is located in North Las Vegas at the northeast corner of Grand Teton Drive and Aliante Parkway. The parcel is legally described as: DATES: Mount Diablo Meridian, Nevada T. 19 S., R. 61 E., Sec. 8, portion of lot 13 (N1/2SW1/4 of lot 13). The area described contains 5.19 acres, more or less. This parcel of land is offered for sale to NPC at no less than the fair market value (FMV) of $467,000 as determined by the authorized officer. An appraisal report has been prepared by a state certified appraiser for the purposes of establishing FMV. This sale is in conformance with the Las Vegas Resource Management Plan (RMP), approved October 5, 1998. BLM has determined that the proposed action conforms to the land use plan decision, LD–1, in that RMP. The land contains no other known public values. The parcel has not been identified for transfer to the State or any other local government or non-profit organization. The EA, master title plat, map, and approved appraisal report for the proposed sale are available for review at the Las Vegas Field Office. A direct sale (without competition) may be used when, in the opinion of the authorized officer, a competitive sale is not appropriate and the public interest would best be served by direct sale. Examples include, but are not limited to: (1) 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 (2) 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. An existing NPC authorized site-type right-of-way, N–76305, known as the Grand Teton substation encumbers the entire sale parcel. This substation lies in the northwestern portion of Government Lot 13 and provides support for the community and its continued PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45053 development in North Las Vegas and Clark County. This substation contributes an essential service to the neighboring area and its surroundings. The substation consists of transformers, insulators, busses, switches, breakers, and distribution feeders. It generates power and electrical energy for use in a one-mile radius. The proponent proposes to construct a concrete wall along the perimeter of the substation. The sale parcel was analyzed in the ‘‘Las Vegas Land Disposal Boundary Environmental Impact Statement,’’ approved December 23, 2004 (EIS), which is available for public review at the Las Vegas Field Office. The parcel was analyzed in an EA for this sale, which tiers to the EIS. Certain minerals for this parcel will be reserved to the United States in accordance with BLM approved Mineral Potential Report, dated October 5, 2006. Information pertaining to the reservation of minerals specific to the parcel is located in the case file and available for review at the Las Vegas Field Office. Terms and Conditions of Sale: The patent issued would contain the following numbered reservations, covenants, terms and conditions: 1. All oil and gas and saleable minerals are reserved to the United States, its permittees, licensees and lessees, together with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove the minerals under applicable law and such regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe, along with all necessary access and exit; 2. A right-of-way is reserved for ditches and canals constructed by authority of the United States under the Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945); 3. The parcel is subject to valid existing rights; 4.
