SHERIDAN — The Bureau of Land Management Buffalo Field Office is requesting input on an environmental assessment of proposed non-competitive sale of public lands in Sheridan and Campbell counties.
The BLM posted the environmental assessment and an unsigned finding of no significant impact on its website April 24 which opens a 30-day public comment period.
The BLM is considering a direct sale of eight parcels of public land totaling 208.12 acres in Sheridan County, at no less than the appraised fair market value to Farmland Reserve, Inc. Farmland Reserve, Inc. submitted a proposal to the BLM in October 2011 expressing interest in purchasing 208.12 acres of public land in Sheridan County. The BLM is also considering a direct sale of one parcel of public land totaling 4.15 acres in Campbell County at no less than the appraised fair market value to Means Revocable Trust.
Due to the ownership pattern, these parcels are difficult for BLM to manage and there is no legal public access.
