BLM transfers land to Custer County communities

In keeping with legislation approved in 2015, the Bureau of Land Management’s Challis Field Office has completed the necessary paperwork to convey eight parcels of land in Custer County.

The land will be used for a variety of public purposes in Challis, Clayton and Custer County. It will be used for a solid waste disposal site, cemetery, fire hall, parks, and campground.

The patents were outlined as part of H.R. 1138 by Congressman Mike Simpson, the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, and Jerry Peak Wilderness Additions Act of August 7, 2015. The law instructed BLM to convey several parcels of public land without monetary consideration to the community projects.

“The BLM has worked hard with our local city and county officials to fulfill this responsibility,” said Todd Kuck, Challis Field Manager. “We are pleased to complete this process and provide land for important public purposes as the legislation required.”

The Idaho BLM State Office signed the paperwork in mid-December. The Challis Field Office hand-delivered it to the communities later that month.
