Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use. The proposal consists of three parcels of land designated as Parcel No. 50 (.436 acres), Parcel No. 51 (.379 acres), and Parcel No. 52 (.245 acres) together totalling approximately 1.06 acres for a permanent roadway easement. Current use and present condition is vacant grassland. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. The land was acquired under FAA Project No. 9-20-040-6003. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the disposal of the airport property will be in accordance with the FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999.

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. The proposed land will be sold in fee as a permanent roadway easement to provide improvements for traffic circulation around the airport—specifically for the right-of-way for additional turn lanes and roadway drainage. The proceeds from the sale of the land will be used for airport improvements and operational expenses at W. K. Kellogg Airport.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before January 25, 2001.
