Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.


Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is giving notice Start Printed Page 61213that a portion of the airport property containing 52.95 acres located in the south-southwest corner of the airport is not needed for aeronautical use as currently identified on the Airport Layout Plan.

The majority of the acreage comprising this parcel was originally acquired through Grant No. FAAP-9-47-027-C603 in 1965 to protect the approach to Runway 5/23. The remainder of the acreage within this parcel was acquired by the airport sponsor and State of Wisconsin at that same time. The parcel is presently wooded and undeveloped. Runway 5/23 was officially and permanently closed on April 8, 1998. The land comprising this parcel is, therefore, no longer needed for aeronautical purposes. The airport wishes to transfer ownership of the land to facilitate future industrial development in the vicinity of the airport. Income from the sale will be used to improve the airport. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property.

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.


Comments must be received on or before November 15, 2000.
