The purpose of this disposal is for the sale of the 5-acre parcel to the current lessees to resolve ownership issues. The project area encompasses 5 acres of public land. The legal description for the land specifically identified for disposal is: W.M., T. 20 S., R. 29 E., section 34, E1⁄2SE1⁄4SE1⁄4SW1⁄4. The 5 acres of public land proposed for disposal are currently authorized for private use under a lifetime lease. A cabin exists on the parcel as part of a long-term unintentional trespass. This parcel is essentially cut off from public use due to private land holdings and the general topography of the area. The environmental analysis will address other resource issues as necessary. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:00 Jul 20, 2011 Jkt 223001 The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the process for developing the EA. At present, the BLM has identified the following issues: Lands and realty management and social and economic values. Native American tribal consultations will be conducted in accordance with policy, and tribal concerns will be given due consideration, including impacts on Indian trust assets. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with other stakeholders that may be interested or affected by the BLM’s decision on this project are invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be requested by the BLM to participate as a cooperating agency. The BLM will use an interdisciplinary approach to develop the plan in order to consider the variety of resource issues and concerns identified.
