The Washington County School District currently leases land from the Bureau of Land Management for a bus garage and elementary school site in the Bloomington Hills area of St. George City. Additional space is needed for bus maintenance and parking. The School District proposes to expand their site to give them additional space. They have also proposed to construct a driver training course. Leasing or conveying title to these public land is consistent with current BLM land use planning and would be in the public interest.

2. A right-of-way for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States.
3. All minerals shall be reserved to the United States, together with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove the minerals.

For a period of 45 days from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, interested persons may submit comments regarding the proposed classification, leasing or conveyance of the land to the Field Office Manager, St. George Field Office.
Classification Comments: Interested parties may submit comments concerning the suitability of the lands for school purposes.
