The following described land in Clark County, Nevada, has been examined and found suitable for lease and subsequent conveyance under the provisions of the R&PP Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 869 et seq.).

Sec. 19, portion of lot 19.

This description will be replaced by another lot designation on final approval of the official plat of survey. The area described contains 5.09 acres, more or less, in Clark County.

The City filed an R&PP application to develop the above described land as an offices and yard site. The proposed facilities consist of offices, a yard area, and related appurtenances for various City departments, such as police, parks and recreation, public works, and utilities. It will provide a critical hub for the City to provide essential maintenance, operations, and safety services to the public.

Additional detailed information pertaining to this application, plan of development, and site plan is located in case file N-85687 at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Las Vegas Field Office at the address above.

The City is a political subdivision of the State of Nevada and is therefore a qualified applicant under the R&PP Act. The lease and subsequent conveyance is consistent with the BLM Las Vegas Resource Management Plan, dated October 5, 1998, and would be in the public interest.

Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the land described above will be segregated from all other forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for lease or conveyance under the R&PP Act, leasing under the mineral leasing laws, and disposals under the mineral material disposal laws.

Interested parties may submit written comments regarding the specific use proposed in the application and plan of development, whether BLM followed proper administrative procedures in Start Printed Page 58313reaching the decision to lease and subsequently convey under the R&PP Act, or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the land for R&PP use.
