The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Springfield-Branson Regional Airport under the provisions of AIR21.
On April 25, 2001, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Springfield-Branson Regional Airport submitted by the Airport Board of the City of Springfield met the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA will approve or disapprove the request, in whole or in part, no later than June 30, 2001.
The following is a brief overview of the request.
The Springfield-Branson Regional Airport requests the release of approximately 169 acres of airport property. The land is currently not being used for aeronautical purposes. The release of the property will allow for its incorporation into an industrial park that will bring both sewers and natural gas to the southern boundaries of the airport. With utilities and access to those utilities in place, the airport would have the opportunity to develop, for aeronautical uses, land west of the industrial center and north of the southern boundary.
It is estimated that the sale of the property would provide $1,352,000. The proceeds, less $75,000, would be used for future FAA-Airport Improvement Program (AIP) eligible projects at the Springfield-Branson Regional Airport within the next five years. The $75,000 would be applied to an aeronautical project at the airport administered by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
Any person may inspect the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
In addition, any person may inspect the request, notice and other documents germane to the request in person at the Springfield-Branson Regional Airport.Start Signature
