BLM seeks public comment to lease and subsequently convey land to Clark County for a fire station

LAS VEGAS – The Bureau of Land Management Las Vegas Field Office today announced it is seeking public comment on Clark County’s proposal to lease and subsequently convey approximately 2.5 acres of public land for a new community fire station.  The parcel is located near the intersection of Raven Avenue and Rosanna Street in the southwestern part of the Las Vegas Valley.

The fire station will consist of a new 10,482 square foot building with an Emergency Medical Service office, Battalion Chief’s office, Captain’s office, dining room, kitchen, day room, fitness room, outdoor BBQ area, alarm center, laundry area, turnout room, 12-person dorm and a 3 large-vehicle apparatus bay with a mechanical yard.  The building will be constructed of insulated concrete masonry units and steel structure with a decorative masonry veneer and steel canopy at the main entrance. There will be a paved parking lot behind the building consisting of 11 paved spaces for the public and 25 spaces for staff.  Typical desert landscaping will be included throughout the site.

“The BLM is pleased to have a role in the development of a project that benefits the public and will help the local community grow,” said Shonna Dooman, Las Vegas Field Manager.  “This action will help Clark County Real Property Management increase public safety to local and future residents in the southwest Las Vegas Valley.”

The Notice of Realty Action for a Recreation and Public Purposes Act Classification was published in the Federal Register today which initiated a 45-day public comment period ending on May 16, 2022.  Interested parties may submit comments regarding the proposed decisions for the Recreation and Public Purposes Act classification and lease/conveyance application.

Comments regarding the classification should address whether the parcel is physically suited for the proposal, and whether the use will maximize the future use of the land and is consistent with local planning and zoning, as well as with State and Federal programs. 

Comments regarding the application should address whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision to lease and convey under the Recreation and Public Purposes Act, or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the land for Recreation and Public Purposes Act classification.  Written comments about the proposed Recreation and Public Purposes Act lease (serialized N-99569) must be mailed to Las Vegas Field Office, Assistant Field Manager, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV; or faxed to 702-515-5010.
