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 of the airport property. The proposal consists of Parcel OO-4, a 14.380-acre portion of Parcel OO (consisting of three Tracts: 1—3.787 acres, Tract 2—1.044 acres, and Tract 3—9.549 acres). Presently the land is vacant and used as open land for control of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use and is not needed for Start Printed Page 1612aeronautical use, as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. Parcel OO (147.50 acres) was acquired in 1967 with partial Federal participation. Of the original 147.50 acres, 57.0 acres were purchased with Federal participation. A portion of Tract 3 (approximately 3.4 acres) of the 57.0 acres purchased with Federal Participation is included in this proposal. It is the intent of the Metropolitan Airport Authority of Rock Island County (MAARIC) to sell Parcel OO-4 (14.380 acres) in fee to the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Highways, for the expansion of Milan Beltway. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the MAARIC to dispose of the property. This notice announces that the FAA intends to authorize the disposal of the subject airport property at Quad City International Airport, Moline, 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. 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.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before February 9, 2004.
