Federal agency handling Oz land transfer accused of misrepresentations

A citizen group that has sued the federal government over its handling of
the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant transfer says the government made
"blatant misrepresentations" to the judge handling the suit.

Taxpayers Opposed To Oz, or TOTO, sued the General Services Administration
earlier this year. The group alleged that the agency had not followed the
National Historic Preservation Act when it cleared the way to transfer
Sunflower to the Oz Entertainment Co.

In a status report filed in the case last month, the agency said one
historical preservation group, the Oregon-California Trails Association,
"no longer (has) any preservation concerns" about the proposed transfer.

"That's not correct," said Craig Crease, a member of the group who is
working on Sunflower preservation issues. "We've made no report to the
(General Services Administration). I have no idea where they got that."

In looking for historical trails that would need to be preserved, the
group has surveyed the Sunflower property and plans to do more
investigation there. So far it has not found any trails, but it does plan
to make recommendations to the agency, Crease said.
