BLM SEEKS PUBLIC COMMENT TO LEASE LAND TO CLARK COUNTY FOR A PARK
LAS VEGAS – (RealEstateRama) — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Las Vegas Field Office today announced it is seeking public comment on a proposal to lease approximately 10 acres of public land to Clark County, Nevada for a public park (N-93733) and related facilities. The proposed park is located at the northwest corner of West Pyle Avenue and Polaris Avenue in the southwest area of the Las Vegas Valley, and would include covered picnic structures, restrooms, parking, a children’s play area, open turf areas, a walking path, landscaping, signage, and other ancillary amenities.
“The BLM strives to be a good neighbor in the communities we serve, and we look forward to receiving input from the public on this proposal,” said Tim Smith, BLM Southern Nevada District Manager.
The Notice of Realty Action for a Recreation and Public Purposes Act (R&PP) Classification was published in today’s 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.
It is estimated that the project will generate 5 to 50 direct jobs at peak construction, with a permanent staff of up to five operating the facility after construction.
The 45-day public comment period will begin today and end November 15, 2018. Written comments about the proposed sale should be mailed to: BLM, Las Vegas Field Office, Acting Assistant Field Manager, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130 or faxed to: 702-515-5023.
Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personally identifiable information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personally identifiable information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask the BLM in your comment to withhold your personally identifiable information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
