The area described contains 160 acres, more or less, in Clark County.
In accordance with the R&PP Act, the City of Henderson filed an application for the above-described 160 acres of public land to be developed for recreational, civic, and municipal facilities. Recreational facilities will include a community park, programmable sports fields, an aquatics center, tennis courts, interpretive areas, and biking, running and hiking trails. The trail systems to be developed will connect to the city-wide trail system and ultimately, to the Clark County trail system. The plan also includes a multi-purpose senior center and municipal facilities. Additional detailed information pertaining to this application, plan of development, and site plans is in case file N-82826 located at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada.
The land is not needed for any Federal purpose. The lease/conveyance is consistent with the Las Vegas Resource Management Plan dated October 5, 1998, and would be in the public interest. The lease/conveyance, when issued, will be subject to the provisions of the R&PP Act and applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior, and will contain the following reservations to the United States:
1. A right-of-way for ditches or canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945); and
2. All minerals together with the right to prospect for, mine and remove such deposits from the same under applicable law and such regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe.
The lease/conveyance will be subject to all valid existing rights documented on the official public land records at the time of lease/patent issuance.
On August 24, 2007, the land described will be segregated from all other forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for lease/conveyance under the R&PP Act, leasing under the mineral leasing laws, and disposal under the mineral material disposal laws.
