Recreation and Public Purposes, Classification and Termination; UT

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

[[Page 48888]]

SUMMARY: On October 4, 2000, 80 acres of public land were classified and segregated for Recreation and Public Purposes (R&PP) purposes (UTU- 78576). Subsequently it was determined that a fifty acre portion of this classification contained resource values which should remain in public ownership. Therefore, the classification on these fifty acres of public land in Garfield County is being terminated. In place of this 50 acre parcel, an additional thirty acres which have been determined to not contain these values are hereby classified for disposal under the Recreation and Public Purposes Amendment Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100-648).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Frank Olsen, 318 North 100 East, Kanab, UT 84741.

The description of the land on which the classification is terminated is: Salt Lake Meridian, Utah, T. 35 South, R. 5 West, Section 5, SW\1/4\SE\1/4\SW\1/ 4\; Section 9, N\1/2\NE\1/4\NW\1/4\; N\1/2\NW\1/4\NW\1/4\, containing 50 acres more or less.

Effective September 24, 2001 the Recreation and Public Purposes classification for the parcel of land described above, is hereby terminated. At 8 a.m. September 24, 2001, the land described above will be opened to the operation of the public land laws generally, including location and entry under the United States mining laws, subject to valid existing rights, other segregations of record, and the requirements of applicable law.

L. 100-648): Salt Lake Meridian, Utah, T. 35 South, R. 5 West, Section 8, N\1/2\NW\1/4\NE\1/4\, NE\1/4\NE\1/4\NW\1/4\, containing 30 acres. Garfield County intends to use the land in conjunction with the adjacent land previously classified under this Act for a public shooting range. The land is not needed for a Federal purpose.
