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 the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of the airport property. The proposal consists of one parcel totaling approximately 42.68 acres. Current use and present condition is undeveloped vacant land. The land was originally sold to the County from Bradley Reality Company, December 27, 1935. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. However, an avigation easement will be imposed over this property to protect the airspace for future aeronautical development and any building constructed on this parcel will be limited to one-story. The proposed land will be used to enhance the infrastructure surrounding the airport by developing business is an area designated as a Renaissance Zone. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the disposal of the airport property will be in accordance with 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.


Comments must be received on or before August 22, 2003.
