Existing communication facilities at the Hill 71 communication site include Hinsdale County-owned buildings and a BLM-owned tower. The existing facilities are at capacity and unable to accommodate additional uses. A second facility (building, tower, back-up generator, etc.) would provide for unmet current and future demand at the site. The BLM received three applications and one expression of interest for developing a communications-use facility at the Hill 71 communication site. The BLM has not formally accepted any of the three applications, thereby making this site suitable for competitive leasing. The BLM has determined that competition exists for constructing a second communications facility at Hill 71, in accordance with 43 CFR 2804.23. The Hill 71 site is located in an area with sensitive visual resources and the BLM has determined that only one additional facility is appropriate. The Hill 71 communication site is located approximately 7 miles southeast of Lake City, Colorado, and legally described as: New Mexico Principal Meridian, Colorado T. 43 N., R. 4 W., sec. 35, lots 6 and 7. Granting a communications-use lease at the Hill 71 communication site conforms with the BLM Gunnison Resource Area Approved Resource Management Plan, approved in February 1993. In conformance with the National Environmental Policy Act, an environmental analysis will be conducted once a successful bidder has been identified.
