Any other terms or conditions that the Authorized Officer determines appropriate to ensure public access and proper management of the Federal land and interests therein. Detailed information concerning this proposed project, including, but not limited to documentation relating to compliance with applicable environmental and cultural resource laws, is available for review at the BLM-Utah Salt Lake Field Office at the address above.

Publication of this notice serves to open the lands to disposition under the R&PP Act only. Classification Comments: Interested parties may submit comments involving the suitability of the land for the proposed use. Comments on the classification are restricted to whether the land is physically suited for the proposal, whether the use will maximize the future use (or uses) of the land, whether the use is consistent with local planning and zoning, or whether the use is consistent with State and Federal programs. Application Comments: Interested parties may submit comments regarding the specific use proposed in the application and management plan, and whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision to convey under the R&PP Act.
