DATES: Comments regarding the proposed sale must be received by the BLM January 6, 2011. ADDRESSES: Written comments concerning the proposed sale should be sent to Ruth A.

SUMMARY: The following described public land is being proposed for direct sale to the Animal Shelter in accordance with Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended, (43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719), at no less than the appraised fair market value: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Boise Meridian T. 2 N., R. 18 E., Sec. 17, lots 5, 6, and 7. The area described contains 17 acres in Blaine County. TEXAS Pierce County Bureau of Land Management, Interior. ACTION: Notice of realty action. AGENCY: The appraised fair market value is $18,700. The public land is identified as suitable for disposal in the 1982 BLM Sun Valley Management Framework Plan, as amended, and is not needed for any other Federal purposes. The Animal Shelter is a non-profit corporation that provides public benefits to Blaine County (County) residents in the form of an adoption center, an impound facility for the County and local cities, administration of the county dog licensing program, and an informational and educational center. The Animal Shelter owns approximately 5 acres of private land abutting the east boundary of the proposed sale parcel. The Animal Shelter was issued a right-of-way for a road and a fence that cross the 17-acre subject parcel in August 1986 for a period of 30 years. Within the last 20 PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71143 years or so, the Animal Shelter has inadvertently encroached upon a portion of the 17-acre subject parcel with infrastructure and associated uses. The disposal of the 17 acres to the Animal Shelter would allow the BLM to support the local non-profit’s and local government’s interest in acquiring public lands; to extend community services; to dispose of an isolated parcel of public land; and would formally resolve an inadvertent trespass by the Animal Shelter. Regulations contained in 43 CFR 2711.3–3 permit direct sales when a competitive sale is inappropriate and when the public interest would best be served by a direct sale, including the need to resolve inadvertent unauthorized use or occupancy of the lands, or when a tract is identified for transfer to State or local government or non-profit organizations. In accordance with 43 CFR part 2710, the BLM authorized officer finds that the public interest would best be served by authorizing the direct sale to the Animal Shelter, which would allow the identified lands to be consolidated with their adjacent private property to be used for purposes of an animal shelter and would allow the existing infrastructure and improvements on the 17-acre subject parcel to remain. The subject parcel contains no known mineral values; therefore, the BLM proposes that the conveyance of the Federal mineral interests occur simultaneously with the sale of the land. The Animal Shelter will be required to pay a $50 nonrefundable filing fee for the conveyance of the mineral interests. On January 16, 2009, the above described land was segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws. The segregation terminates (1) Upon issuance of a patent, (2) publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or (3) 2 years from the date of segregation, whichever occurs first. The land will not be sold before January 21, 2011. Any patent issued will contain the following terms, conditions, and reservations: 1. A reservation to the United States for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States under the Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945); 2. A condition that the conveyance be subject to all valid existing rights of record; 3.

Additional terms and conditions that the authorized officer deems appropriate. Detailed information concerning the proposed land sale including the appraisal, planning and environmental documents, and a mineral report are available for review at the BLM Shoshone Field Office at the location identified in the ADDRESSES section above.

ADDRESSES: Copies of the ROD are available upon request from the BLM Southern Nevada District Office, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89130 or via the internet at the following Web site: http://www.blm.gov/ nv/st/en/fo/lvfo.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The applicant, Solar Millennium, LLC, is authorized to construct the Amargosa Farm Road Solar Energy Project on approximately 6,320 acres of public land in 2 separate phases with a total generating capacity of approximately 500 megawatts (MW) of power. The Amargosa Farm Road Solar Energy Project is a solar facility utilizing parabolic trough solar thermal technology. Phase 1 of the project will generate 250–MW and Phase 2 will generate 250–MW, with an average net output of approximately 232–MW for each phase. Each phase will consist of power blocks, a solar field, a heat transfer fluid and steam generation system, a nitrate salt thermal storage system, conventional water treatment, electrical switchgear, administration, warehouse, and maintenance facilities. The project facility will disturb approximately 4,350 acres of the 6,320 SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 acre project area and will include solar fields, power blocks, office buildings, maintenance building, parking area, lay down area, storm water detention basin, evaporation ponds, switch yard, and a realignment of Amargosa Farm Road. The Notice of Availability (NOA) for the Draft EIS analyzing impacts of the proposed project was published in the Federal Register on March 19, 2010 (75 FR 13301) for public review and comment. A total of 37 comment letters were received on the Draft EIS. The comments were incorporated, where appropriate, to clarify the analysis presented in the Final EIS. The NOA for the Final EIS was published in the Federal Register on October 15, 2010 (75 FR 63503). The Final EIS analyzes 3 alternatives; a No Action Alternative, the Proposed Action, and a Wet-Cooled Alternative. These alternatives were shaped in part by comments received from the public and internal BLM review. Alternative 1: No Action. The No Action Alternative assumes the right-ofway application for the Amargosa Farm Road Solar Energy Project would be denied and the proposed project would not be built. Alternative 2: Proposed Action (DryCooled). This is the Environmentally Preferable Alternative that analyzes the construction, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of 2 dry-cooled solar power plants, each with a nameplate capacity of 250–MW and a net output of approximately 232–MW. Alternative 3: Wet-Cooled Alternative. Under the wet-cooled alternative, the proponent would construct and operate 2 wet-cooled solar power plants, each with a nameplate capacity of 250–MW and a net output of approximately 242– MW. Each solar plant would be equipped with thermal storage capability and associated linear facilities. Construction and operation of a wet-cooled project would be similar to a dry-cooled plant, however, the net power output from a wet-cooled solar power plant facility is greater than the net power output from a dry-cooled solar power plant facility. Plant components and layout are similar under both the wet- and dry-cooled alternatives; the primary differences are the amount of water used for plant operations, the need for cooling towers for heat rejection from the steam cycle for the wet-cooled alternative, and the area needed for evaporation ponds. Because this decision is approved by the Secretary of the Interior, it is not subject to administrative appeal (43 CFR 4.410(a)(3)). E:\FR\FM\22NON1.SGM 22NON1

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to sell a parcel 
of public land totaling 17 acres in Blaine County, Idaho, to the Animal 
Shelter of Wood River Valley (Animal Shelter) for the appraised fair 
market value of $18,700.

DATES: Comments regarding the proposed sale must be received by the BLM 
January 6, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following described public land is being 
proposed for direct sale to the Animal Shelter in accordance with 
Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 
1976, as amended, (43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719), at no less than the 
appraised fair market value:

Boise Meridian

T. 2 N., R. 18 E.,
    Sec. 17, lots 5, 6, and 7.
    The area described contains 17 acres in Blaine County.

    The appraised fair market value is $18,700. The public land is 
identified as suitable for disposal in the 1982 BLM Sun Valley 
Management Framework Plan, as amended, and is not needed for any other 
Federal purposes.
    The Animal Shelter is a non-profit corporation that provides public 
benefits to Blaine County (County) residents in the form of an adoption 
center, an impound facility for the County and local cities, 
administration of the county dog licensing program, and an 
informational and educational center. The Animal Shelter owns 
approximately 5 acres of private land abutting the east boundary of the 
proposed sale parcel. The Animal Shelter was issued a right-of-way for 
a road and a fence that cross the 17-acre subject parcel in August 1986 
for a period of 30 years. Within the last 20 years or so, the Animal 
Shelter has inadvertently encroached upon a portion of the 17-acre 
subject parcel with infrastructure and associated uses.
    The disposal of the 17 acres to the Animal Shelter would allow the 
BLM to support the local non-profit's and local government's interest 
in acquiring public lands; to extend community services; to dispose of 
an isolated parcel of public land; and would formally resolve an 
inadvertent trespass by the Animal Shelter.
    Regulations contained in 43 CFR 2711.3-3 permit direct sales when a 
competitive sale is inappropriate and when the public interest would 
best be served by a direct sale, including the need to resolve 
inadvertent unauthorized use or occupancy of the lands, or when a tract 
is identified for transfer to State or local government or non-profit 
organizations. In accordance with 43 CFR part 2710, the BLM authorized 
officer finds that the public interest would best be served by 
authorizing the direct sale to the Animal Shelter, which would allow 
the identified lands to be consolidated with their adjacent private 
property to be used for purposes of an animal shelter and would allow 
the existing infrastructure and improvements on the 17-acre subject 
parcel to remain.
    The subject parcel contains no known mineral values; therefore, the 
BLM proposes that the conveyance of the Federal mineral interests occur 
simultaneously with the sale of the land. The Animal Shelter will be 
required to pay a $50 nonrefundable filing fee for the conveyance of 
the mineral interests.
    On January 16, 2009, the above described land was segregated from 
appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws. 
The segregation terminates (1) Upon issuance of a patent, (2) 
publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the 
segregation, or (3) 2 years from the date of segregation, whichever 
occurs first.
    The land will not be sold before January 21, 2011. Any patent 
issued will contain the following terms, conditions, and reservations:
    1. A reservation to the United States for ditches and canals 
constructed by the authority of the United States under the Act of 
August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945);
    2. A condition that the conveyance be subject to all valid existing 
rights of record;
    3. A notice and indemnification statement under the Comprehensive 
Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. 
9620(W)),

[[Page 71144]]

indemnifying and holding the United States harmless from any release of 
hazardous materials that may have occurred;
    4. An appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United 
States from claims arising out of the lessee's/patentee's use, 
occupancy or operations on the leased/patented lands; and
    5. Additional terms and conditions that the authorized officer 
deems appropriate. Detailed information concerning the proposed land 
sale including the appraisal, planning and environmental documents, and 
a mineral report are available for review at the BLM Shoshone Field 
Office at the location identified in the ADDRESSES section above. 
Normal business hours are 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, except for Federal holidays.
    Public Comments: Public comments regarding the proposed sale may be 
submitted in writing to the BLM Shoshone Field Manager (see ADDRESSES 
section) on or before January 6, 2011. Comments received in electronic 
form, such as e-mail or facsimile, will not be considered. Any adverse 
comments regarding the proposed sale will be reviewed by the BLM Idaho 
State Director or other authorized official of the Department of the 
Interior, who may sustain, vacate, or modify this realty action in 
whole or in part. In the absence of timely filed objections, this 
realty action will become the final determination of the Department of 
the Interior.
    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. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying
