BLM Accepting Sealed Bids for Public Lands near Alamo for Housing Development

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting sealed bids from the public for 159 acres of BLM-managed public land near Alamo, Nev., for residential development.  Sealed bids will be accepted until close of business, Wednesday, Nov. 21.  Sealed bids below appraised fair market value (FMV) will not be accepted.  FMV has been established at $398,000.  Sealed bids should be mailed to the BLM Las Vegas Field Office, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130.

An oral competitive sale is scheduled at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 27, at the Rapport Executive Retreat, at 1 JFDI Way, in Alamo.  Oral bidding will begin at the FMV or highest sealed bid.

The sale complies with the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act (FLTFA).  A portion of the proceeds will be paid to the state and the remainder will be deposited in the Federal Land Disposal Account for acquisition of in-holdings or other such lands in Nevada.

The BLM on Nov. 5 offered to Lincoln County 228.25 acres of adjacent public land for use as an industrial park.  The county-proposed park will contain light industry and manufacturing, and will generate job opportunities and enhance Alamo’s economic growth.  The direct sale complied with FLTFA.

Under the county proposal, the BLM will offer through competitive sales two additional parcels of adjacent public lands for residential and commercial development.  The 194 and 285-acre parcels will be offered for sale under authority of the Lincoln County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act (LCCRDA) upon completion of the Ely Resource Management Plan.

For more information, contact Manuela Johnson, BLM Las Vegas Field Office realty specialist, at (702) 515-5224.
