The MCPRD proposes to use the above described lands for a variety of recreation facilities to be associated with the Vulture Mountains Cooperative Recreation Management Area. This is a cooperatively managed area between the BLM and MCPRD for public lands located south of Wickenburg, Arizona. Related improvements for the proposed lease include picnic and camping facilities, restrooms, trailheads, developed day use facilities, and parking. Issuance of a lease is in conformance with the Bradshaw Harquahala Resource Management Plan, approved April 2010, through land use authorization decision LR–24, and is in the public’s interest. The lands are not needed for any other Federal purpose and the lease will be analyzed in a site-specific environmental analysis. Upon publication in the Federal Register, the lands described above will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for lease under the R&PP Act and leasing under the mineral leasing laws. Detailed information concerning this action is available for public review during normal business hours at the address above. The lease, when issued, will be subject to the provisions of the R&PP Act and will contain the following terms, conditions, and reservations: 1. Provisions of the R&PP Act and all applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior. 2. All minerals shall be reserved to the United States, together with the right to prospect for, mine and remove such deposits from the same under VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:27 Nov 07, 2016 Jkt 241001 applicable law and such regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe. 3. All valid existing rights. 4. An appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United States from claims arising out of the lessee’s use, occupancy, or operation of the property. It will also contain any other terms and conditions deemed necessary and appropriate by the Authorized Officer. 5. The lessee shall comply with and shall not violate any of the terms or provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (78 Stat. 241), and requirements of the regulations, as modified or amended, of the Secretary of the Interior issued pursuant thereto (43 CFR part 17) for the period that the lands leased herein are used for the purpose for which the grant was made pursuant to the act cited above, or for another purpose involving the provision of similar services or benefits. Classification Comments: Interested parties may submit comments on the suitability of the lands for a developed recreation area. Comments on the classification are restricted to whether the lands are physically suited for the proposal, whether the use will maximize the future use or uses of the lands, whether the use is consistent with local planning and zoning, or if the use is consistent with Federal and State programs. Application Comments: Interested parties may submit comments regarding the specific uses proposed in the application and plans of development, whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision, or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the lands for recreation purposes. Any adverse comments will be reviewed by the BLM State Director. In the absence of any adverse comments, the classification will become effective on January 9, 2017. The lands will not be offered for lease until after the classification becomes effective. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment (including your personal identifying information) may be made available to the public at any time. While you can ask in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

The visitor services include the provision of wireless Internet access within remote but developed areas of Lake Mead NRA. DATES: The term of the sole-source concession contract will commence (if awarded) no earlier than sixty (60) days from the publication of this notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Director of the National Park Service (NPS) may award a concession contract non-competitively upon a determination that extraordinary circumstances exist under which compelling and equitable considerations require the award of the concession contract to a particular qualified person in the public interest (36 CFR 51.25). Contracts that are awarded non-competitively pursuant to 36 CFR 51.25 are commonly referred to as ‘‘sole-source’’ contracts. The NPS has determined that BladeBeam, Inc. is a ‘‘qualified person’’ as defined by 36 CFR 51.3, and has determined that compelling and equitable considerations exist because of the difficulty of providing wireless Internet in the remote but developed areas of Lake Mead NRA, and because BladeBeam, Inc. is willing to make a significant investment with no guaranteed return.
