So it would appear in 2013 this announcement was made:
http://www.solarreviews.com/news/moapa-develop-gws-clean-energy-081413/

A google search also finds a court case from December 2014 with the plaintiff being Moapa Band of Paiute Indians and Herbst Moapa Development LLC as the defendent.

You figure out whats going on here!

The December 2014 entry from Federal Court shows the parties reached a settlement regarding the project. They might be back on track and working once again. Who knows?

It is hereby stipulated and agreed by Plaintiff, Moapa Band of Paiute Indians, by and through their attorneys, RICHARD M. BERLEY, ESQ. of ZIONTZ CHESTNUT, DON SPRINGMEYER, ESQ. of WOLF, RIFKIN, SHAPIRO, SCHULMAN & RABKIN, LLP and Defendant, Herbst Moapa Development, LLC, by and through their attorney of record, JEFFERY A. BENDAVID, ESQ. of the MORAN LAW FIRM, LLC, that the parties have settled the above entitled case. Therefore, this case should be dismissed with prejudice, with each party to bear its own attorneys' fees and costs.

When we last raced there with SNORE for the Mint at Moapa, the course was partly on BLM land and if I remember correctly the BLM issued some tough penalties to SNORE after the race. Maybe the Moapa Band figured they could make more money leasing land for solar projects over a racing partnership where they might have to deal with the BLM in some form?

The last time Snore ran the old Mint track in 2011 , the BLM and the BIA did not get along . The BLM said they would not do the race again with the BIA. The BLM issue was from 2010 mint and has since been restored. The BLM is proposing an ACEC in the new RMP that will forever stop racing on the old mint track.

"The BLM is proposing an ACEC in the new RMP that will forever stop racing on the old mint track."

A truly B U L L S H I T way of stopping anything. ACECs are suppose to have been done after the Wilderness Bill was presented in the 1970s. All ACECs were proposed then for study to be included in the Wilderness Bill. Those that were not approved within 5 years were suppose to return to their previous land designation. There were no provisions for new ACECs in that bill. This is just a way for the Gov't, run by the econazis, to control your lives through crappy management actions.

Great post Bro! All the wilderness study areas (WSA) on Forest land were supposed to Sunset if not designated and they have illegally hung on to them and treat them like wildernessfor years and years!

I know it's long but here is the thread http://www.race-dezert.com/forum/threads/blm-las-vegas-new-rules.119784/page-12 . The 2011 mint track is set on top of the proposed California wash ACEC

Where is the land in question in regards to the Bundy Ranch Cattle lands on that map?

What is up the BLM and this land? Reid and his lynch men are clinging to this area like a strung out hooker to a dead beat pimp. I am so waiting for yet another scandal to reveal itself. Hopefully a movie is made about it all where Clint Eastwood kicks down a door on Reid in precarious stunt, Reid pulls a gun on Eastwood, so he throws a knife in the throat and than punches Liam Neeson in the face. YEAAH!
