     7-8-2501. Purposes of part. The purposes of this part are:
     (1) to authorize a board of county commissioners to establish criteria for the classification of unsold tax-deed lands and other county-owned lands, however acquired, and to classify such lands for retention or disposal in accordance with such criteria so that county-owned lands shall be used in the best interests of the county and for the public benefit and welfare;
     (2) to encourage the application of a multiple-use principle in the utilization and administration of such lands so that the administration of lands classified for retention can be coordinated with land use planning, zoning, grazing and agricultural land improvement, fish and wildlife habitat improvement and enhancement, recreation, access to other intermingled or adjacent multiple-use areas, and for any other appropriate uses which are in the best interests of the county or which will advance the public benefit and welfare; and
     (3) to grant sufficient powers to the board to enable the board to achieve the foregoing purposes.
