Proposed Plan Amendment

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, (BLM), Interior.

ACTION: Notice of intent to amend the 1988 Pocatello Resource
Management Plan.


SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Bureau of Land Management
(BLM) proposes to amend the 1988 Pocatello Resource Management Plan
(RMP) pursuant to the regulations at 43 CFR Part 1600, with respect to
management of 400 acres of Federal land in Bannock County, Idaho.
    Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the lands
will be segregated from all other forms of appropriation under the
public land laws, including the general mining laws, except for
conveyance under the Recreation and Public Purposes Act and leasing
under the mineral leasing laws. Interested parties may submit written
comments and recommendations regarding the land use plan amendment.
Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other
personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware
that your entire comment--including your personal identifying
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be
able to do so.
    Comments: Interested parties may submit comments as to whether the
land is physically suited for landfill purposes, whether the use will
maximize the future use or uses of the land, whether the land use is
consistent with local planning and zoning, or if the use is consistent
with State and Federal programs.

DATES: Comments will be accepted regarding the Plan Amendment, for a
period of 30 days, or until September 28, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Send written comments to: David Pacioretty, Pocatello Field
Manager, 4350 Cliffs Drive, Pocatello, Idaho 83201.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Candi Aguirre, Realty Specialist, 208-


Boise Meridian, Bannock County, Idaho

    Sec. 28: SW\1/4\NW\1/4\,
    Sec. 29: NE\1/4\SE\1/4\, SE\1/4\SE\1/4\,

    Sec. 33: NW\1/4\, NW\1/4\NE\1/4\.

    Containing 400 acres more or less.

    The County of Bannock has submitted an application to acquire these
public lands near the community of Pocatello, Bannock County, Idaho to
expand their existing landfill, known as the Fort Hall Mine Landfill.
This site is expected to reach capacity by the year 2010. The lands
applied for are not needed for Federal purposes and lie adjacent to the
existing landfill. The 1988 RMP did not identify these lands for
transfer out of public ownership but stated that land disposals would
be considered through plan amendments where unforeseen needs are
identified. The plan also reflected BLM policy of that time in stating
that BLM would no longer lease or patent land for landfill purposes
under R&PP Act because of the liability associated with hazardous waste
disposals. BLM policy later changed as the R&PP Act was amended by
Congress to allow public land to be conveyed for landfill purposes
without the customary reversionary clause required for R&PP patents.

    Dated: August 20, 2007.
David Pacioretty,
Pocatello Field Manager.
