BLM Proposes to Offer Public Land Parcel for Sale


Las Vegas – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comment on a proposal to sell a 12.5-acre parcel of public land in the Las Vegas Valley during a competitive sealed-bid sale. The Notice of Realty Action (NORA) for a land sale under the authority of the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act was published in the Nov. 8 Federal Register. Written comments on the proposed sale will be accepted during a 45-day comment period until December 24.

The 12.5 acre parcel was nominated for sale by a request from Clark County. The parcel is located on the northeast corner of Haleh Avenue and Polaris Street in the southwestern Las Vegas Valley.
 
The parcel would be offered at no less than the fair market value of $520,000.  Sealed bids may be mailed or delivered to the BLM Las Vegas Field Office beginning December 24, and must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time, January 7, 2013, in accordance with the competitive, sealed-bid procedures. Bid opening will be conducted at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office on January 8 at 10 a.m.
 
The funds generated by a successful sale would be used in Nevada for projects such as the funding for the development of parks, trails, and natural areas, capital improvements on Federal lands, acquisition of environmentally sensitive land and Lake Tahoe restoration projects. Additionally, 5 percent of the revenue goes to the State of Nevada General Education Fund, and 10 percent to the Southern Nevada Water Authority. 

Written comments must be addressed to the Las Vegas Field Office Assistant Field Manager, Las Vegas Field Office, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV  89130. 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.
