Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the provisions of AS 38.05.801 and 11 AAC 99, the Executive Director of the Alaska Mental Health Trust Land Office (TLO) has determined that it is in the best interest of the Alaska Mental Health Trust and its beneficiaries to issue a placer mineral lease for certain Trust land to Doug Baker, doing business as Landview Excavating. The basis for this determination is explained in a written best interest decision prepared by the Executive Director pursuant to 11 AAC 99.040.
The Trust land affected by the decision is an irregularly shaped parcel located on Pedro Creek near its confluence with Skoogy Creek at approximate Mile 17 of the Steese Highway, in the E1/2 Section 11 and the W1/2 Section 12, Township 2 South, Range 1 East, Fairbanks Meridian, containing approximately 65 acres (a portion of MH Parcel F70015).
Persons who believe that the written decision should be altered because it is not in the best interests of the Trust or its beneficiaries, or because the decision is inconsistent with Trust management principles set out in 11 AAC 99.020, or any other provision of 11 AAC 99, must provide written comments on or before 4:30 PM, August 1st, 2019. Comments should be submitted to the TLO at 2600 Cordova Street, Suite 100, Anchorage, AK 99503, or by fax (907) 269-8905 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Following the comment deadline, the Executive Director will consider timely comments that question the decision on the basis of the best interest of the Alaska Mental Health Trust and its beneficiaries or inconsistency with 11 AAC 99, and the best interest decision may be changed in response to such written comments or other information. Commenting parties will be provided a copy of the final best interest decision after the end of the notice period.
