BLM Seeks Input on Centennial Valley Land Exchange Proposal

The Bureau of Land Management, Dillon Field Office is seeking public input on a proposed land exchange in the Centennial Valley. Cabins now owned by Ms. Peggy Dulany were built circa 1913 on BLM lands.  The cabins are not government property and there is no public access to the cabin sites. To resolve the situation, Ms. Dulaney has offered to exchange 41.68 acres of private land for 40 acres of BLM property where the cabins are located, at her cost.  

The potential acquisition parcel has public access via a two-track road off Brundage Lane and is bordered to the north by public land. The parcel proposed to be acquired contains a portion of the Red Rock River and an old oxbow of the river with wetland riparian and waterfowl habitat.

To explain the proposal in more detail and gather public comments, BLM will host a public meeting on June 12 in Lima from 6-8 p.m. at the Community Center adjacent to the fire station. To submit comments via email, send to MT_Dillon_FO@blm.gov and put Dulany land exchange in the subject line. For a map or additional information, call the Dillon Field Office at 406-683-8000.
