The site examined and found suitable for leasing under the provisions of section 302 (b) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 and 43 CFR 2920.0-6 is within Section 30, T. 19 S., R. 6 W., Fairbanks Meridian, Alaska, and is approximately one (1) acre in area. An application to lease the site will be accepted from only Ray Atkins to resolve an unauthorized use of public lands. An existing cabin was constructed on site by Ray Atkins with the safety concerns of many local residents in mind for use during harsh winter conditions that are common for this area of Alaska. Intended to be remote emergency shelter in times of need, the cabin will also be open and available for general public use year-round, except when the applicant will utilize the cabin in support of his guiding activities in the area during a short period in the fall. Any comments and application must include a reference to this notice. Fair market value rent, as required in 43 CFR 2920.8 and as determined by Instruction Memorandum AK-2005-028, will be collected for the use of these lands, as well as reasonable administrative, processing, and monitoring costs for processing the lease as required in 43 CFR 2920.6.

This determination was made upon completion of an Environmental Assessment, recommending that a one-acre site, be leased to Ray Atkins within Sec. 30, T. 19 S., R. 6 W., Fairbanks Meridian, Alaska, to authorize the use and occupancy of public lands and thereby resolve an unauthorized use(Authority: 43 CFR 2920.4(c)).
