SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following parcels of public lands in Chaves County, New Mexico proposed for direct sale are described as: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES New Mexico Principal Meridian T. 9 S., R. 24 E., Sec. 26, W1⁄2NW1⁄4SE1⁄4; Sec. 35, N1⁄2NE1⁄4NE1⁄4, NE1⁄4NW1⁄4NE1⁄4 and SE1⁄4NE1⁄4NE1⁄4. The area described contains 60 acres, more or less, in Chaves County. The parcels are 5 miles northeast of the City of Roswell in an area south of U.S. Highway 70 and north of the Old Clovis/Roswell Highway. Access to the parcels is off of U.S. Highway 380. This is a mostly undeveloped area and a large portion of the land in the immediate proximity of the subject property is currently owned by the New Mexico Military Institute and the Roswell Gun Club. The unauthorized, inadvertent uses on these parcels consist of a twotrack roadway, which provides access to the existing Roswell Gun Club, firing ranges, sightings-in range, small arms firing range, and various earthen berms. The authority for the sale is Section 203 of the FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1713) and regulations found at 43 CFR 2710. Regulations contained in 43 CFR 2711.3–3 make allowances for direct sales when a competitive sale is inappropriate and when the public interest would best be served by a direct sale. In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0– 6(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3–3(5), the VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:09 Jul 07, 2010 Jkt 220001 BLM authorized officer finds that the public interest would be best served by resolving the inadvertent unauthorized use and occupancy of BLM-managed lands by direct sale to a landowner whose improvements occupy portions of the parcels and to protect existing equities in the land. The parcels are not required for Federal purposes, and the 1997 BLM Roswell Resource Management Plan, as amended, provides for disposal in support of unauthorized use through sale to resolve long-standing trespass if the disposal criteria are met. Therefore, the parcels meet the qualifications for disposal from Federal ownership. The disposal (sale) of the parcels would serve the public interest for private economic development which outweighs other public objectives and values with respect to these parcels. Upon publication of this Notice, the land will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of FLPMA. The segregative effect will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of segregation, or July 9, 2012, whichever occurs first, unless the segregation period is extended by the BLM State Director, New Mexico, in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d) prior to the termination date. Upon publication of this notice and until completion of the sale, the BLM will not accept land use applications regarding these parcels. Federal law requires purchasers to be citizens of the United States, 18 years of age or older; or, in the case of corporations, to be subject to the laws of any State or of the United States; a State, State instrumentality or political subdivision authorized to hold property or an entity legally capable of conveying lands or interests therein under the laws of the State of New Mexico. The purchaser will be allowed 30 days from receipt of a written offer from the BLM to submit a deposit of 30 percent of the appraised FMV of the parcels, and 180 days thereafter to submit the balance. Payment must be in the form of a certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable in U.S. dollars to the order of the U.S. Department of the Interior BLM. Personal checks will not be accepted. Failure to meet conditions established for this sale will void the sale and any monies received will be forfeited. If the balance of the purchase price is not received within the 180 days, the deposit shall be forfeited to the United States and the parcels withdrawn from sale.

It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to be aware of those laws, regulations and policies, and to seek any required local approvals for future uses. Buyers should also make themselves aware of any Federal or State law or regulations that may impact the future use of the properties. If the parcels lack access from a public road or highway, they will be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will be the responsibility of the buyer.

    The area described contains 60 acres, more or less, in Chaves 
County.

    The parcels are 5 miles northeast of the City of Roswell in an area 
south of U.S. Highway 70 and north of the Old Clovis/Roswell Highway. 
Access to the parcels is off of U.S. Highway 380. This is a mostly 
undeveloped area and a large portion of the land in the immediate 
proximity of the subject property is currently owned by the New Mexico 
Military Institute and the Roswell Gun Club. The unauthorized, 
inadvertent uses on these parcels consist of a two-track roadway, which 
provides access to the existing Roswell Gun Club, firing ranges, 
sightings-in range, small arms firing range, and various earthen berms. 
The authority for the sale is Section 203 of the FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1713) 
and regulations found at 43 CFR 2710. Regulations contained in 43 CFR 
2711.3-3 make allowances for direct sales when a competitive sale is 
inappropriate and when the public interest would best be served by a 
direct sale. In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0-6(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 
2711.3-3(5), the BLM authorized officer finds that the public interest 
would be best served by resolving the inadvertent unauthorized use and 
occupancy of BLM-managed lands by direct sale to a landowner whose 
improvements occupy portions of the parcels and to protect existing 
equities in the land.
    The parcels are not required for Federal purposes, and the 1997 BLM 
Roswell Resource Management Plan, as amended, provides for disposal in 
support of unauthorized use through sale to resolve long-standing 
trespass if the disposal criteria are met. Therefore, the parcels meet 
the qualifications for disposal from Federal ownership. The disposal 
(sale) of the parcels would serve the public interest for private 
economic development which outweighs other public objectives and values 
with respect to these parcels. Upon publication of this Notice, the 
land will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the 
public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions 
of FLPMA. The segregative effect will terminate upon issuance of a 
patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of 
segregation, or July 9, 2012, whichever occurs first, unless the 
segregation period is extended by the BLM State Director, New Mexico, 
in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date. 
Upon publication of this notice and until completion of the sale, the 
BLM will not accept land use applications regarding these parcels.
    Federal law requires purchasers to be citizens of the United 
States, 18 years of age or older; or, in the case of corporations, to 
be subject to the laws of any State or of the United States; a State, 
State instrumentality or political subdivision authorized to hold 
property or an entity legally capable of conveying lands or interests 
therein under the laws of the State of New Mexico. The purchaser will 
be allowed 30 days from receipt of a written offer from the BLM to 
submit a deposit of 30 percent of the appraised FMV of the parcels, and 
180 days thereafter to submit the balance. Payment must be in the form 
of a certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier's 
check made payable in U.S. dollars to the order of the U.S. Department 
of the Interior BLM. Personal checks will not be accepted. Failure to 
meet conditions established for this sale will void the sale and any 
monies received will be forfeited. If the balance of the purchase price 
is not received within the 180 days, the deposit shall be forfeited to 
the United States and the parcels withdrawn from sale.
    Any patent issued will contain the following numbered reservations, 
covenants, terms and conditions:
