BLM seeks comments on small land sale in Shasta County

REDDING, Calif. — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comments for a proposed direct sale of approximately four acres of public lands in Shasta County, California. The land sale, valued at $45,500, gives preference to the adjoining landowner and resolves private land access issues. The public comment period ends Sept. 16.

The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 and BLM regulations authorize the sale of these public lands without competitive bidding for adjoining landowners.
