Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

SUMMARY:

The Oregon Land Exchange Act of 2000 (OLEA), Pub. L. 106-257, requires the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to exchange certain described public lands within 90 days after reaching agreement with Clearwater Land Exchange on the final appraised values. In the Northeast Oregon Assembled Land Exchange (NOALE) Final Environmental Impact Statement, dated June 29, 1998, the BLM examined these public lands and found them suitable for exchange under section 206 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1716), as amended.

The first transaction of the OLEA involves the exchange of approximately 35,055 acres of Federal land for approximately 35,712 acres of private lands. There will be at least one additional exchange, and likely a third and final transaction in order to fully carry out the requirements of the OLEA.

ACTION:

1. The BLM will exchange the following described public lands under the authority of the Oregon Land Exchange Act of 2000, subject to valid existing rights

Sec 04, lot 4 (portion of).

The above described lands aggregate approximately 35,712 acres, more or less, in the counties of Grant, Morrow and Umatilla, Oregon.

Findings: In sec. 2 (3) and (4) of the OLEA, Congress found that consolidation of land ownerships through the exchange will facilitate sound and efficient management for both public and private lands, which will reduce administrative costs to the United States. Congress also found that the exchange will improve public access, aesthetic quality, and recreational opportunities within wild and scenic river corridors; and will provide protection and enhancement of habitat for threatened, endangered, or sensitive species. The NOALE Final Environmental Impact Statement supports these Congressional findings.

The appraisals show the value of the lands to be exchanged as approximately equal. Full equalization of values will be achieved by payment to the United States of funds in an amount not to exceed 25 percent of the total value of the public lands to be transferred.

Time and Place for Public Review: Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register and in newspapers in general circulation in the vicinity of the public lands included in this exchange, beginning on Monday, October 30, 2000, the general public will have a 15 day review period to examine the comprehensive summaries of the appraisals for both the public and the private lands. The BLM is making these summaries available, in addition to the complete appraisals of the public and the private lands, in the public room of the Prineville District Office, the Baker Field Office, and the Land Office of the Oregon State Office.
