The following described federally-owned land has been determined to be suitable for disposal by exchange. The authority for this exchange is section 1302(h) of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) of December 2, 1980, 16 U.S.C. 3192(h). The federal land which is proposed for disposal is within the boundary of the Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. It is located approximately 2 miles southwesterly of the mouth of Silver Salmon Creek and contains approximately 4.55 acres. The land has been surveyed for cultural resources and endangered and threatened species. These reports are available upon request from the Superintendent, Lake Clark National Park and Preserve at the address set forth above. Title to the above land will be conveyed in fee simple with covenants and restrictions that prohibit for-profit selling of services, industrial uses and commercial development. The covenants also limit development and occupancy of the parcel and require that future development be visually compatible with surrounding park and preserve lands. Conveyance of the land by the United States will be done by patent.
In exchange for the land identified above the United States of America will acquire U.S. Survey 8481, Alaska, a 79.98-acre parcel on the southern shore of Lake Clark at Sucker Bay, approximately 16.5 miles southwesterly of the village of Port Alsworth, and approximately 7.5 miles northwesterly of Nondalton in fee simple with no reservations. The value of the properties exchanged shall be determined by a current fair market value appraisal. If the appraised value of the Sucker Bay parcel is greater than the appraised value of the Silver Salmon Creek parcel, the parties will complete the exchange, subject to approval of title to the Sucker Bay parcel by the Department of the Interior, Regional Solicitor. An environmental assessment of the proposed action was completed in January 2007 and a Finding of No Significant Impact approved on March 26, 2007.
