The purpose of the sale is to dispose of public land which is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands because it is isolated from other public lands in the area. The BLM is proposing a direct sale to the County of Shasta that wants to acquire the land as a buffer area to preclude incompatible development near its existing landfill on adjacent non-Federal land.
