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 airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale/exchange of the airport property. The proposal consists of Parcel 16-3-F1, a 3.169 acre portion of Parcel 16-3-F, and Parcel 14-1, a 0.636 acre portion of Parcel 14. Presently the land is vacant an used as open land for control of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use and is not needed for aeronautical use, as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. Parcel 16-3-F (57.17 acres) was acquired in 1970 with partial Federal participation. Of the original 57.17 acres, 44.46 acres was purchased with Federal Participation. 12.71 acres of the original 57.17-acre parcel have been Start Printed Page 50746previously released from Federal obligations to the Illinois Department of Transportation for highway Right-of-Way. Parcel 14 (215.70 acres) was acquired in 1946 without federal participation. Of the original 215.70 acres, 9.68 acres of this parcel have been previously released from Federal obligations to the Illinois Department of Transportation for highway Right-of-Way. It is the intent of the Springfield Airport Authority (SAA) to exchange Parcel 16-3-F1 for Parcel 14-1 (collectively 3.805 Acres) with the City of Springfield for the R.O.W. currently owned by the City of Springfield (1.958 Acres) that is located adjacent to the southeast quadrant General Aviation development area. While the acreages exchanged are not equal, the benefit the SAA will obtain from the acquisition of the 1.958 acres of R.O.W will outweigh the shortfall in releasing 3.805 acres, as the new acquisition will allow for further General Aviation development in the south quadrant area. This notice announces that the FAA intends to authorize the disposal/exchange of the subject airport property at Capital Airport, Springfield, IL. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in 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. 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.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before September 4, 2002.
