The public lands have been identified as suitable for disposal in the BLM’s September 2006 Ukiah Resource Management Plan, as amended, because they are isolated from large blocks of public land and are considered to be difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands. Parcels Nos. 2, 3, and 4 lack legal access, which increases the difficulty of managing them as part of the public lands. In addition, they are not needed for any Federal purpose.
