Any or all of the above-described lands may be exchanged if the values are equal. If the values are unequal, either party may equalize the values by making a payment in cash, not to exceed 25% of the value of the lands transferred out of Federal ownership.
As currently assembled, the estimated values of the Federal and non-Federal lands are unequal and are not within 25% of the value of the Federal lands. Also, the two leased area parcels described above are administrative sites located outside the boundaries of the Inyo NF, and inclusion of such parcels in this exchange is not authorized under the General Exchange Act. Legislation is proposed in Congress to allow this land exchange to proceed with a cash payment by the non-Federal party that exceeds 25% of the Federal land value, and to include the two non-Federal parcels located outside the Inyo NF boundary.
The FS proposes to acquire land with floodplains associated with: Clavey R. and Rock Cr., Little Reynolds Cr., Looney Cr., and an unnamed stream tributary to Bourland Cr. (Stanislaus NF); an unnamed stream tributary to Hungry Cr. (Plumas NF); Gable Cr., Pine Cr., Chidago Canyon Cr. and unnamed tributaries to it, an unnamed stream tributary to Mono Lake, and unnamed streams associated with Watterson Meadow (Inyo NF); Martin Cr. (Eldorado NF). There are no floodplains associated with the Federal lands.
The Federal lands have been segregated from appropriation under the public land laws and mineral laws for a period not to exceed 5 years from the date of the publication of this notice
The FS is analyzing the environmental and other effects of this land exchange under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). A decision to complete the exchange will be based on overall public benefits. A Proposed Action describing the exchange, along with other project maps and documents are available at http://www.fs.fed.us/nepa/nepa_test/fs-usda-pop.html?project=30428. These documents are also available for viewing at the Supervisor's Offices of the four affected Forests: Eldorado NF, 100 Forni Road, Placerville, CA 95667; Inyo NF, 351 Pacu Lane, Bishop, CA 93514; Stanislaus NF, 19777 Greenley Road, Sonora, CA 95370; Plumas NF, 159 Lawrence Street, Quincy, CA 95971. CDs containing maps and documents can be requested via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The public can also learn more about the proposed exchange by attending a public meeting in Mammoth Lakes, CA, on Sept. 29, 2011 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in Suite Z, Town of Mammoth Hall, 475 Old Mammoth Rd, Mammoth Lakes, CA.
