CARSON CITY — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District-Stillwater Field Office, is seeking public comments on a preliminary environmental assessment (EA) for a proposed direct sale to Travis Farm in Edwards Creek Valley, about 30 miles west of Austin, in Churchill County. The public is invited to submit comments on the EA through close of business on June 8.
The proposed land sale consists of disposal through direct sale of approximately 800 acres of public land in two parcels. The lands would be sold at not less than the appraised fair market value. The appraised value has not yet been determined. The EA analyzes potential impacts from the land sale activities proposed by Travis Farm.
A notice of proposed sale published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2010, segregated the lands for two years from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws in order to facilitate an orderly processing of the proposed sale. The lands are identified as suitable for disposal in the 2001 BLM Carson City Consolidated Resource Management Plan. All mineral deposits in the parcels will be reserved to the United States.
Links to the EA and related documents are online at www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field/blm_information/nepa.html. Printed copies are available upon request from the BLM Carson City District Office.
Send written comments to Steve “Chip” Kramer, Planning & Environmental Coordinator, BLM-Stillwater Field Office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, Carson City, NV 89701. Comments also can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Public comments submitted for this project, including names and addresses of commenters, will be available for public review at the Carson City District Office from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except federal holidays.
