On April 5, 2000, new authorizing legislation became effective. That bill, the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR 21), Public Law 10-181 (Apr. 5, 2000; 114 Stat. 61), requires that a 30-day public notice must be provided before the Secretary may waive any condition imposed on an interest in surplus property.
The following is a brief overview of the request:
The City of Madera requested the release of approximately 1.332 acres of dedicated airport land at Madera Municipal Airport, Madera, California, from surplus property agreement obligations. The purpose of the release is to permit the sale of property that is cost prohibitive for the City of Madera to develop into any kind of aeronautical use. The property is an economic deterrent as the site is being at low elevation so as to require significant fill to bring it to grade. The net proceeds will be utilized for airport improvements for projects identified in the Airport Capital Improvement Plan.Start Signature
