LAS VEGAS (KSNV – The Bureau of Land Management plans to sell 40 parcels of public land in Clark County totaling 516.8 acres, the agency announced Monday.

A notice published in Monday’s Federal Register began a 45-day comment period that closes Sept. 26. During the comment period the BLM’s Las Vegas field office will accept public statements on the proposal.

The sale by sealed bid and oral public auction will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2, at the City of North Las Vegas Council Chambers.

Bids for the parcels must be sealed and include at least 20 percent of the bid amount and a bid guarantee deposit of $10,000, in the form of a cashier’s check, certified check or postal money order made payable, in U.S. dollars, to "Department of the Interior - Bureau of Land Management."

The funds from the sale of the land will be used throughout Nevada for projects including the development of parks, trails and natural areas, capital improvements on federal lands, acquisition of environmentally sensitive land and landscape restoration projects.

In addition to those projects, 5 percent of revenue will go to the state of Nevada general education fund and 10 percent to the Southern Nevada Water Authority.

According to the BLM, the sale parcels chosen for the clearance were analyzed in the Las Vegas Disposal Boundary Environmental Impact Statement of December 2004 and lie within approved disposal boundaries established in the Las Vegas Resource Management Plan and the Record of Decision on October 5, 1998.

Written comments about the proposed sale should be mailed to: BLM, Las Vegas Field Office, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130. Before disclosing personal information be aware that the comments submitted could become public record at any time.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
