The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public input on its Preliminary Environmental Assessment for the Washoe County School District’s plans to put a middle school in Sun Valley.

A copy of the assessment is available at the Carson City District BLM office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, or online at http://bit.ly/2tmUrDo.

Written comments will be accepted through August 15 by mail at the BLM Carson City office, by fax to 775-885-6147 or by email to [email protected] Those providing feedback are asked to direct correspondence to Garrit Buma and to put “Sun Valley School EA” in the subject line.

The environmental assessment analyzes direct, indirect, and cumulative effects from issuing a Recreation & Public Purposes Act lease and eventual patent of 80 acres of public land to the school district.

Construction on the school is scheduled to start in late 2017 and be complete by fall 2019.
