Proposed Exchange of Property

[51 Pa.B. 6257]
[Saturday, October 2, 2021]

 The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), acting through the Bureau of Forestry (Bureau), and Tracey A. Peters are proposing to negotiate an exchange of property interests in Greene Township, Clinton County and Spring Township, Centre County.

 The proposed exchange involves approximately 2-acres of State forest land, which surrounds the site of a State forest camp lease, located in Spring Township, Centre County in exchange to the Commonwealth of a 4-acre tract located in Greene Township, Clinton County (the Bull Run Tract). There is no infrastructure on the 4-acre Bull Run Tract. It is bound on the west by State Route 477 and the east by mostly existing State forest land. The property shares a joint boundary with State forest land for approximately 3/10-mile and provides improved protection of water quality in the Fishing Creek watershed and protection of habitat for species of concern. The acreage balance is strongly in favor of the Commonwealth and therefore makes this proposed transaction justified as equal or greater value for the Commonwealth. The proposed exchange will further consolidate public ownership of this forested landscape and is consistent with the Bureau's land acquisition goals.

 As is the policy of the Department, the public is hereby notified of this proposed exchange. A 30-day period for public inquiry or comment will be in effect beginning October 2, 2021, and ending October 31, 2021. Oral or written comments or questions concerning this proposed exchange may be addressed to Tom Stahl, Planning Section, Bureau of Forestry, P.O. Box 8552, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8552,, (717) 772-0268. Oral or written comments will become part of the official document used in the final decision process. Written documents are also available regarding the proposed land exchange by request.

 If, in the duration of the 30-day comment period, a significant amount of public concern develops, the Secretary of the Department may schedule a public informational meeting.
