Shooting Closure on Certain Lands Managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Las Vegas Field Office
Document Number: E7-19698
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-10-05
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Land Management Bureau
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Las Vegas Field Office announces a target shooting closure on about 11,874 acres of selected public lands in Nye County near the southwest portion of the Town of Pahrump. The permanent closure is being made for the safety of persons and property adjacent to the selected public lands at the request and concurrence of the Nye County Commissioners, the Nye County Sheriff's Office and the Pahrump Town Board. The rapid increase in population and growth in Pahrump, Nevada has created conflicts between new residential areas and public land areas traditionally used for target shooting. This closure does not apply to hunting under the laws and regulations of the State of Nevada or other recreational activities. The BLM is establishing this shooting closure under the authority of 43 CFR 8364.1 which allows closures for the protection of persons, property, and public lands and resources. This provision allows the BLM to issue closures of less than national effect without codifying the rules in the Code of Federal Regulations.
