(City) is to allow and achieve the highest and best uses of the parcel 
and to meet the needs of the City without the threat of

a reversion of the title for breach of patent conditions. The parcel 
meets the disposal standards in the 1987 BLM Spokane Resource 
Management Plan and the regulations at 43 CFR part 2710. The parcel is 
not needed for Federal purposes and the United States has no present 
interest in the property other than the reservation of the mineral 
interests to the United States, and its disposal will be in the public 
interest. The action is consistent with Federal laws, State and local 
planning and zoning ordinances. The reversionary interest in this 
property will be offered by direct sale and released to the City for 
the fair market value of $1,600,000. The reversionary interest in this 
property will not be conveyed and released until at least January 6, 
2012.
    Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the original patent, dated 
January 13, 1983, the United States retains and continues to hold a 
reversionary interest on the following land as described in the before-
mentioned patent:

Willamette Meridian

T. 9 N., R. 27 E.,
    Sec. 12, SE\1/4\SE\1/4\.

    The area described contains 40 acres in Benton County.


    The City's initial purpose for the parcel was as a sewage 
interceptor site and lagoon. This use is no longer needed. The City had 
requested to change the use and control of all or a portion of the 
parcel from municipal or recreational purposes to commercial purposes 
to accommodate community expansion and commercial development. Changing 
the use of the parcel to commercial purposes would violate the terms of 
the patent. Therefore, the City has requested to purchase the 
reversionary interest on all or a portion of the parcel. To provide 
purchase options to the City, the parcel was split into three 
government lots by means of a cadastral survey that was funded by the 
City. As a result of the survey, the description of the parcel 
determined suitable for direct sale and release to the City is now 
described as:

Willamette Meridian

T. 9 N., R. 27 E.,
    Sec. 12, lots 1, 2, and 3.

    The area described contains 38.53 acres in Benton County per the 
official, filed survey, dated April 27, 2011.

    Direct sale procedures would be conducted under the provisions 
found at 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a)(1) and (2) for direct sales. A direct sale 
to the City is appropriate in this case as the parcel was patented 
previously to the City and the sale of the Federal reversionary 
interest, if it were sanctioned to any other entity, would not protect 
existing equities of the City of West Richland, Washington. The sale 
and release of the reversionary interest of the 38.53 acres will be 
made in accordance with FLPMA and the applicable regulations of the 
Secretary of the Interior, and will be subject to the following:
    1. A right-of-way for ditches or canals constructed by the 
authority of the United States pursuant to the Act of August 30, 1890;
    2. A condition that the conveyance be subject to all valid existing 
rights of record;
    3. The terms and conditions of the United States patent 46-83-0050, 
including, but not limited to, all mineral deposits in the land so 
patented, and to it, or persons authorized by it, the right to prospect 
for, mine, and remove such deposits from the same under applicable law 
and such regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe;
    4. All parcels are subject to the requirements of Section 120(h) of 
the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability 
Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. Section 9620(h));
    5. No representation, warranty, or covenant of any kind, express or 
implied, is given or made by the United States as to access to or from 
any parcel of land, the title, whether or to what extent the land may 
be developed, its physical condition, present or potential uses, or any 
other circumstance or condition; and,
    6. Additional terms and conditions that the authorized officer 
deems appropriate. Detailed information concerning the proposed sale, 
including the appraisal, planning and environmental documents, and 
Environmental Site Assessment, are available for review at the location 
identified in ADDRESSES above.
    Public comments regarding the proposed sale of the reversionary 
interest may be submitted in writing to the attention of the BLM Border 
Field Manager (see ADDRESSES above) on or before December 22, 2011.

facsimiles and email, will not be considered. Any adverse written 
comments will be reviewed by the BLM State Director, who may sustain, 
vacate, or modify this proposed realty action and issue a final 
determination. In the absence of timely objections, this proposal shall 
become the final decision of the Department of the Interior. Before
