ACTION:

Notice of realty action.

SUMMARY:

The following public land in Washoe County, Nevada, has been examined and found suitable for classification for lease/conveyance to the Washoe County Parks Department, under the provisions of the Recreation and Public Purposes (R&PP) Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 869 et seq.):

T. 20 N., R. 19 E., MDM,

Section 4, S1/2SW1/4.

Comprising 80.00 acres, more or less.

The Washoe County Parks Department proposes to use the land for a park. The land is not needed for federal purposes. Lease/conveyance is consistent with current Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land use planning and would be in the public interest. Issuance of a 5-year lease with a purchase option is proposed. The lease/patent, when issued, will be subject to the provisions of the R&PP Act and to all applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior, and will contain the following reservations to the United States:

1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (26 Stat. 391; 43 U.S.C. 945).

2. All mineral deposits in the land so patented, and to it, or persons authorized by it, the right to prospect, mine and remove such deposits from the same under applicable law and regulations to be established by the Secretary of the Interior.

The lease/patent, when issued, will also be subject to:

Those rights for overhead telephone line purposes granted to Nevada Bell, its successors or assigns, by right-of-way Nev-051849 pursuant to the Act of March 4, 1911 (36 Stat. 1253; 43 U.S.C. 961).

Those rights for underground telephone cable purposes granted to Nevada Bell, its successors or assigns, by right-of-way N-21232 pursuant to the Act of October 21, 1976 (90 Stat. 2776; 43 U.S.C. 1761).

Those rights for electric power line purposes granted to Sierra Pacific Power Company, its successors or assigns by right-of-way N-73803 pursuant to the Act of October 21 1976 (90 Stat. 2776; 43 U.S.C. 1761).

Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the land will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for lease or conveyance under the R&PP Act, and leasing under the mineral leasing laws. For a period of 45 days after publication of this notice, interested parties may submit comments regarding the proposed lease/conveyance or classification to the Assistant Manager, Non-Renewable Resources, Bureau of Land Management, Carson City Field Office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, Carson City, NV 89701.

Classification Comments: Interested parties may submit comments involving the suitability of the land for a park. 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 if 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 plan 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 land for a park.

Any adverse comments will be reviewed by the State Director. In the absence of any adverse comments, the classification will become effective 60 days from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. The land will not be offered for lease/conveyance until after the classification becomes final.
