Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance Former Willmar Municipal Airport, Willmar, MN

Action

Notice Of Intent Of Waiver With Respect To Land.

Summary

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to authorize the release of 90 acres of airport property at the former Willmar Municipal Airport, Willmar, MN. The land will be used for an industrial park. The FAA issued a Categorical Exclusion on February 12, 2012.

The City of Willmar built a new airport in 2006, therefore the acreage being released is not needed for aeronautical use. The 90 acres are on the East side of the former Willmar Municipal Airport, more specifically East of County Road 5 and north of Willmar Avenue SW. The acreage was originally acquired with City of Willmar funds. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. The fair market value of this land is $1,700,000 and will be applied to the new Willmar Municipal Airport for operating and maintaining the airport and/or improvements. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA.

In accordance with section 47107(h) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.
