Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.


Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the lease of the airport property. The proposal consists of one parcel of land totaling approximately 12.903 acres for an outdoor soccer facility. 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 Nos.: AIP-3-39-0090-0185 and AIP-3-39-0090-0589. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the lease of the subject airport property nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for Airport Improvement Program funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the lease 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. Together this proposal is for approximately 12.903 acres in total.

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 used for the development of soccer-specific facilities, which have proven to enhance the economy for many Ohio communities in recent years. With over 55,000 registered players in Ohio-North alone, the opportunity to bring major and minor events into the Willoughby area would be significant. This development will also aide in increasing the positive tax revenue stream to the City, and add to the vitality of the existing sports complex during the spring, summer & fall months.

The proceeds from the lease of the land will be used for airport improvements and operation expenses at Willoughby Lost Nation Municipal Airport.


Comments must be received on or before February 15, 2001.
