BLM Seeks Public Comment to Lease Public Land for a High School in Sandy Valley

LAS VEGAS – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Las Vegas Field Office is seeking public comment on a proposal to lease and or subsequently convey approximately 30 acres of public land to the Clark County School District for a high school in Sandy Valley, Nev.

The proposed high school would be located next to existing elementary and middle schools. Public comments will be accepted for 45 days until Monday, August 19.

The Notice of Realty Action for a Recreation and Public Purposes Act (R&PP) Classification was published in the July 3 Federal Register. Interested parties may submit comments regarding the proposed decision for the R&PP application and plan of development, whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision to lease and convey under the R&PP Act, or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the land for R&PP use.
