The land is described as: Indian Meridian, Oklahoma asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES T. 11 N., R. 4 W., Sec. 12, lot 8. The area described contains 2.78 acres. The parcel is a single triangularshaped tract and is fully surrounded by private and city-owned land. The property has improvements such as a city street and a parking lot and landscaping to support the adjacent Dell Campus. Upon publication of this Notice in the Federal Register, the described land will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except for the sale provisions of FLPMA. Upon publication of this Notice and until completion of the sale, the BLM will no longer accept land use applications affecting the identified public lands, except applications for the amendment of previously filed right-of-way applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The land would not be sold until at least November 24, 2014. The segregation will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or September 26, 2016, unless it is extended by the BLM State Director, in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d) prior to the termination date.

In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0–6(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3–3(5), the BLM authorized officer finds that a direct sale would be appropriate here because it would best serve the public interest by resolving the inadvertent unauthorized use of those lands by the City of Oklahoma City.

The RMP provides for disposal to resolve longstanding instances of VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:41 Sep 23, 2014 Jkt 232001 unauthorized use or occupancy through land sale if the disposal criteria are met. The parcel of land is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands and meets the criteria for disposal from Federal ownership. The City of Oklahoma City occupied the proposed land and constructed a road and a landfill. According to soil-boring tests, the landfill did accept some trash at the site. The landfill activities took place between 1950 and the late 1970s. The site has since been remediated and redeveloped for other purposes by the City. Federal law requires purchasers to be citizens of the United States; 18 years of age or older; and, in the case of corporations, to be subject to the laws of any State or of the United States; a State, State instrumentality or political subdivision authorized to hold property or an entity legally capable of conveying and holding lands or interest therein under the laws of the State of Oklahoma. The purchaser will be given 30 days from receipt of a written offer to submit a deposit of 30 percent of the FMV appraisal of the parcel and 180 days thereafter to submit the remainder of the full purchase price. Payment must be in the form of a certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable in U.S. dollars to the order of the U.S. Department of the Interior—BLM. The BLM will not accept any personal or business checks. Failure to meet conditions of this direct sale will void the sale and any funds received will be forfeited. If the balance of the purchase price is not received within the 180 days, the deposit shall be forfeited to the United States and the parcel withdrawn from sale. The parcel is subject to limitations prescribed by law and regulation, and certain encumbrances in favor of third parties. Prior to patent issuance, a holder of any right-of-way within the sale parcels will be given the opportunity to amend the right-of-way for conversion to a new term, including perpetuity, if applicable, or conversion to an easement. The BLM will notify valid existing right-of-way holders of record of their ability to convert their compliant rights-of-way to perpetual rights-of-way or easement. In accordance with Federal regulations at 43 CFR 2807.15, once notified, each valid holder may apply for the conversion of their current authorization. The patent, if issued, would be subject to the following terms and conditions, and reservations: 1. A reservation of a right-of-way for ditches and canals constructed by PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 authority of the United States under of the Act of August 30, 1890, (43 U.S.C. 945); 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM will conduct a direct sale for the 
following parcel of public land located at 3501 SW 15th Street, 
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The land is described as:

Indian Meridian, Oklahoma

T. 11 N., R. 4 W.,
    Sec. 12, lot 8.

    The area described contains 2.78 acres.

    The parcel is a single triangular-shaped tract and is fully 
surrounded by private and city-owned land. The property has 
improvements such as a city street and a parking lot and landscaping to 
support the adjacent Dell Campus.
    Upon publication of this Notice in the Federal Register, the 
described land will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under 
the public land laws, including the mining laws, except for the sale 
provisions of FLPMA. Upon publication of this Notice and until 
completion of the sale, the BLM will no longer accept land use 
applications affecting the identified public lands, except applications 
for the amendment of previously filed right-of-way applications or 
existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in 
accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The land would not be sold 
until at least November 24, 2014. The segregation will terminate upon 
issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a 
termination of the segregation, or September 26, 2016, unless it is 
extended by the BLM State Director, in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-
2(d) prior to the termination date.
    The authority for the sale of public lands is found in Section 203 
of FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1713) and regulation 43 CFR 2710. In accordance 
with 43 CFR 2710.0-6(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3-3(5), the BLM authorized 
officer finds that a direct sale would be appropriate here because it 
would best serve the public interest by resolving the inadvertent 
unauthorized use of those lands by the City of Oklahoma City. A direct 
sale would also be consistent with the adjoining ownership pattern.
    The parcel is not needed for any other Federal purpose, and it has 
been determined that the proposed action conforms to the 1994 BLM 
Oklahoma Resource Management Plan (RMP), goals, objectives, and 
management actions. The RMP provides for disposal to resolve 
longstanding instances of unauthorized use or occupancy through land 
sale if the disposal criteria are met. The parcel of land is difficult 
and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands and meets the 
criteria for disposal from Federal ownership. The City of Oklahoma City 
occupied the proposed land and constructed a road and a landfill. 
According to soil-boring tests, the landfill did accept some trash at 
the site. The landfill activities took place between 1950 and the late 
1970s. The site has since been remediated and redeveloped for other 
purposes by the City.
    Federal law requires purchasers to be citizens of the United 
States; 18 years of age or older; and, in the case of corporations, to 
be subject to the laws of any State or of the United States; a State, 
State instrumentality or political subdivision authorized to hold 
property or an entity legally capable of conveying and holding lands or 
interest therein under the laws of the State of Oklahoma. The purchaser 
will be given 30 days from receipt of a written offer to submit a 
deposit of 30 percent of the FMV appraisal of the parcel and 180 days 
thereafter to submit the remainder of the full purchase price. Payment 
must be in the form of a certified check, postal money order, bank 
draft, or cashier's check made payable in U.S. dollars to the order of 
the U.S. Department of the Interior--BLM. The BLM will not accept any 
personal or business checks. Failure to meet conditions of this direct 
sale will void the sale and any funds received will be forfeited. If 
the balance of the purchase price is not received within the 180 days, 
the deposit shall be forfeited to the United States and the parcel 
withdrawn from sale.
    The parcel is subject to limitations prescribed by law and 
regulation, and certain encumbrances in favor of third parties. Prior 
to patent issuance, a holder of any right-of-way within the sale 
parcels will be given the opportunity to amend the right-of-way for 
conversion to a new term, including perpetuity, if applicable, or 
conversion to an easement. The BLM will notify valid existing right-of-
way holders of record of their ability to convert their compliant 
rights-of-way to perpetual rights-of-way or easement. In accordance 
with Federal regulations at 43 CFR 2807.15, once notified, each valid 
holder may apply for the conversion of their current authorization.
    The patent, if issued, would be subject to the following terms and 
conditions, and reservations:
    1. A reservation of a right-of-way for ditches and canals 
constructed by authority of the United States under of the Act of 
August 30, 1890, (43 U.S.C. 945);
    2. A reservation of all minerals 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 are 
reserved to the United States, together with all necessary access and 
exit rights;
    3. The parcels are subject to valid existing rights; and
    4. An appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United 
States from claims arising out of the lessees/patentee's use, 
occupancy, or occupation on the leased/patented lands.
    Information concerning the sale, encumbrances of record, 
appraisals, reservations, procedures and conditions, and other 
environmental documents that may appear in the BLM public files for the 
proposed sale parcels are available for review during business hours, 
Monday through Friday, at the BLM Oklahoma Field Office, except during 
Federal holidays.
    Comments received in electronic form, such as email or facsimile, 
will not be considered. Submit comments to the address in the ADDRESSES 
section. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be
