The following described public land in Lincoln County, Idaho, is being considered for sale under the authority of Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (90 Stat. 2750 43 U.S.C. 1713):
T. 6 S., R. 22 E.,
Sec. 29, SWSW.
The area described contains 40 acres in Lincoln County.
The 1985 BLM Monument Resource Management Plan identified this parcel of public land as suitable for disposal. The Amendments to Shoshone Field Office Land Use Plans for Land Tenure Adjustment and Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (2003) identified this parcel of land to be within the adjustment area of Zone 4. Public lands in Zone 4 are potentially suitable for disposal primarily by exchange; however, if land exchanges are not feasible, then land tenure adjustment via sale or R&PP patent will be considered. This parcel qualifies for disposal under the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act (FLTFA). Conveyance of the identified public land will be subject to valid existing rights and encumbrances of record, including, but not limited to, rights-of-way for roads and public utilities. Conveyance of any mineral interests pursuant to section 209 of the FLPMA will be analyzed during processing of the proposed direct sale. On August 25, 2008 the above-described land will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. Until completion of the sale, the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the identified public land, except applications for the amendment of previously filed right-of-way applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The segregative effect will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or August 25, 2010 unless extended by the BLM State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date.
Public Comments: For a period until October 9, 2008, interested parties and the general public may submit in writing any comments concerning the land being considered for sale, including notification of any encumbrances or other claims relating to the identified land, to Field Manager, BLM Shoshone Field Office, at the above address. In order to ensure consideration in the environmental analysis of the proposed sale, comments must be in writing and postmarked or delivered within 45 days of the initial date of publication of this Notice. Comments transmitted via e-mail will not be accepted. Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Shoshone Field Office during regular business hours, except holidays. Individual respondents may request confidentiality. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. If you wish to have your name or address withheld from public disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. Any determination by the BLM to release or withhold the names and/or addresses of those who comment will be made on a case-by-case basis. Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by law. The BLM will make available for public review, in their entirety, all comments submitted by businesses or organizations, including comments by individuals in their capacity as an official or representative of a business or organization.Start Signature
